Top 5 Scottish Songs,
by Peter N
Whatever happens in the week ahead Scotland will have it's unique cultural identify in the limelight regardless of it's governance. I got into a lot of indie Scottish bands in the early 90s and now I want to share a few tunes from Scotland that ignited a fire in me!

1. Trashcan Sinatras - I've Seen Everything
Taken from the 1993 album of the same title, I've Seen Everything is a gorgeous slice of pop music from Glascow band Trashcan Sinatras. http://trashcansinatras.com/
2. Idlewild - Roseability
Idlewild were very hit and miss for me, some 'hits' never did it for me but 'Roseability' is a great tune, super lyrics and that catchy quality that made my world a little more enjoyable in my early 20s.
3. Lloyd Cole - Woman in a Bar
Lloyd Cole = Scotland's Greatest Songwriter!
4. John Martyn - May You Never
Oh wait, John Martyn beats Lloyd Cole easily ......
5. Deacon Blue - Real Gone Kid
Guilty Pleasure but oh so pleasurable .....
Aye and remember kids ......
