    1. It is one sentence.
    2. Drop the comma.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***ccrauch, good morning. I think (think!!!) most Americans would prefer: Do you like the song "The Star-Spangled Banner"? (1) The New York Times capitalizes "the" and uses a hyphen. Other publications in the USA and abroad may have a different policy. Thank you.
