The Anacreontic Song

The Tune Behind the Star Spangled Banner: The Anacreontic Song

Stu left a cryptic comment on a previous post, well, it was cryptic because I had never heard of an Anacreontic song, so I look it up. Seems it was a popular song in London about the same time as the American Revolutionary War. Time goes by, the War of 1812 arrives and Francis Scott Key writes the Star Spangled Banner using the tune from this song. The University of Michigan sing The Anacreontic Song loud and clear.
