I like Slovenian, British and German one. Also Slovak anthem is quite good, but I don't like lyrics so much therefore I think "Aká si mi krásna" is better.
Obviously you don't understand the meaning!

trivia: did you know that Spanish national anthem (Marcha Real) doesn't have lyrics, and is only instrumental piece?

What? No Jerusalem? No Land of Hope and Glory? No There'll Always Be an England?

(I realize those aren't national anthems, but if we expand this to patriotic songs....)

EDIT: If we expand this to patriotic songs, and expand it beyond the EU (ahem), I think it's only appropriate, in view of the date, to post this:

(I've been trying to find a less-cheesy recording of the full version - with the intro. no one knows these days - but this is the best I can do.)

My favourites (besides Slovenia) are Russia, Turkey!!, Yugoslavia, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro . For me most of the "old", well known anthems sound great - Germany, France, UK, US, EU, Australia, Italy, Internationale, Portugal, Romania, Israel etc. Italian sounds at least in the first part like an Alpine song, actually the Greek anthem also reminds of sth like that

I guess in all cases we mostly think of the music, not really bothering to look for a translation of the lyrics. As you noted the impression can be quite different from the music. I don't like e.g. French lyrics (opposite of Slovenia, hehe), Dutch anthem says "I have always honoured the King of Spain" etc

Russian anthem as well, before Putin changed it back to the Soviet melody.

We almost gave lyrics to our anthem once. I like French and EU anthems (I have played so many times the later one). On the other side, British anthem is a bit sad IMO.

I've heard on TV that there are 500,000 vehicles circulating illegally in Italy without any insurance. They made 25,000 accidents only in 2010. Most of them are in the south. What a shame for an EU country...

The guy who gave that name to the bus company might have no idea of English.

And I'm splitting my list into two as I have entered the E07 motorway today in my practice for driving license.

For me, the best one is Zbigniew Preisner's Song for the Unification of Europe, part of the soundtrack to the Trois Couleurs: Bleu. It's a fictional anthem for a future unified Europe (the entire continent).

The Trois Couleurs were great films. I'd forgotten all about them....

Mostly scooters.

Okay, you remember how I said I was jealous of your job?
I'm not so sure, actually....

How many hours of driving (and how many hours of sleep) per day is that?

I had 2 hrs at Frankfurt last night, and slept all morning at a rest area in Belgium. Yesterday night I had a full nights sleep in my own bed in Mayrhofen before being told to head back into Italy again for the pick up.
