Cyndi Lauper is the latest pop singer to make a mistake during a rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Hers occurred today at the U.S. Open. (Sunday, September 11th)
During a certain description of our flag, she sang “O’er the ramparts, we watched as our flag was still streaming.” Leaving out one lyric “gallantly,” streaming.
That song is so damn hard to memorize. That’s why at sporting events I just mouth the word “watermelon,” over and over again…
Leave Cyndi alone! “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” and “She Bop” and stuff. She’s not a flag-burning communist who would purposefully mess up “The Star-Spangled Banner” on 9/11.
