Francis Scott Off-Key

What 2-year-old Trent Harris lacks in pitch, rhythm, and remembering the words, he more than makes up for in cuteness, fashion, and good old-fashioned American swagger.

This actually might be my favorite version of this song I've ever heard. Plenty of singers get in front of an arena full of people and go nuts with modulation and grace notes and a lot of vocal hoopla. But little Trent isn't old enough for those kinds of pretensions. He just goes for it. He might not get the tune right, or the words right, but those were never the selling points of "The Star-Spangled Banner." It's really not a great song.
