Sing Along With Me

Here's the version of La Marseillaise, the French National Anthem 
from Abel Gance's 1907 version of Napoleon.
Yes, it's a nasty, violent, almost ridiculous song with copious blood running in the fields, violated women and massacred infants. It was guaranteed to cause big problems when it was written and it still does, but heck, it's easier to sing than the Star Spangled Banner. 
I, for reasons best left unsaid, have to learn how to sing at least the first verse, correctly.
If I can get it down with all of the actors emotive gestures, 
I think I'll have a mega smash hit on my hands!
