"Allons Enfants de la Patrie, le Jour de Gloire est Arrivé!"

Ok, so can I just say that the 14 year old girl inside of me really wants to buy a Zinedine Zidane poster to hang on my bedroom wall???

So all this France/World Cup hoopla made me curious about the French national anthem, La Marseillaise. Click on the link and you get the history and the lyrics in French and English. I never really thought about or listened to them before...Yowza! Pretty bloody and revolutionary, I'd say. Have your guillotines at the ready!

On a cool note, it was written by a guy from Strasbourg!
