Lupang Hinirang

Lupang Hinirang is the National Anthem of the Republic of the Philippines.

Personally, I think its one of the most beautiful National Anthems in the world.

It is against The Philippine constitution to change the form of the song. But several musicians have delivered their own versions of the song. To date, I have no recollection of anyone ever being convicted for it. The song is supposed to be a march. It must be sang in a fast manner (think: marching soldiers) or at least that's what I remember from what was taught to me in school.

Several singers have sung the song for boxing fights of famous boxers like Manny Pacquiao. Like in the recent one where Arnel Pineda delivered his version of the song. In the fight, Pacquiao also delivered the popular pompyang punch a la FPJ.
