Do yourself a favour don't click this link

It had to happen. The Council for Europe has produced a hip hop version of the European Anthem.

"This compilation features the first ever hip hop version of the European anthem, the Organisation’s musical symbol based on the “Ode to Joy” from Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The disc, entitled “Variations”, also includes techno, trance and jazz versions, as well as new classical interpretations for piano, church organ and symphony orchestra".

Well I am sure that the 'kids' will be all signing up to the new hip, cool and trendy organisation.
Save us

First, thanks to the Dodgeblog for linking to this, especially via Blogcritics - not quite an Instalaunch, but odd to see the hits shoot up, , but prepare yourselves, I disover that some Ausatrian Prof with nothing better to do has recorded a CD with his oown version of the Ode to..., in Latin.
Semper regant in Europa
fides et iustitia
et libertas populorum
in maiore patria

Roughly translated as
May there forever reign in Europe
Faith and justice
And freedom for its people
In a bigger motherland

The old lie, Dulce et decorum est Pro patria laudis
