Christian Singer Crowder Breaks Down Why the 'Star-Spangled Banner' Is Possibly the 'Best Song Ever Written

"That's genius right there."

Singer David Crowder, who regularly churns out hits on the Christian charts, recently said on The Church Boys podcast that his two favorite songs ever written are "Happy Birthday" and the "Star-Spangled Banner."

As for "Happy Birthday," Crowder, who recently released the "Neon Porch Extravaganza" EP, said that there's brilliance is in the fact that such a simple song allows for everyone's name to be placed in the lyrics

"Happy Birthday" has become a beloved tradition and is, no doubt, the most well-known tune in America.

"Who could write a song that has everybody's name in it?" Crowder said. "That's genius right there."

As for "The Star-Spangled Banner," the national anthem of the United States of America, he called it "one of the most perfect pieces of poetry ever" and said that it's "the best song ever written, maybe."

"It's unbelievable the way the story unfolds ... you don't even know what you're singing about until later," Crowder said of the lyrics. "You can't see the flag until the moment of conflict ... it's 'still there,' 'bombs bursting in air.'"

Crowder also discussed his career, the Grammys and plenty more. Listen to his Church Boys appearance at the 35:40 mark below:
