“But Dana,” you’re saying, after perusing the other music videos I have shared here, “where are the pipes?”
Glad you asked.
The younger of the two pipers is internet-famous in his own right: Grant MacLeod, the Munro Bagpiper. Congratulations to Grant, incidentally, on the occasion of his recent wedding. Lang may yer lum reek!
This one’s new!
You should have seen my face when I heard these guys were Scottish.
Probably looked a lot like yours does now.
(Unless you already knew. Then never mind.)
Speaking of Rory McCann. Who’s that drummer?
I love how he gets into it as he goes along.
[Song lyrics here at Genius]
First got turned on to this via the Rory McCann fandom because Mr. McCann turned up at a LaFontaines show and introduced this specific song for, I hope, obvious reasons. I like rock anyway, and rap-rock too, but this song is also musically interesting. Give it a listen. If you’re at all inclined you’ll hear what I mean.
I’m in this fun Facebook group where we share cute animal stuff, and today I shared a post of a tortoise in a kilt. I don’t know why the human involved was making tortoise-kilts, but the tortoise looked very handsome in it.
Facebook friend who is also in the group said she knows I am a “Scotophile” so I must be familiar with this song!
I said no, I hadn’t been familiar, but now I am.
I did not also say, “IT’S ‘ALBAPHILE,'” but she’ll catch on eventually. 😉
Verdict: I am not sure which I like better, this song or the one variously called “The Scotsman,” “The Drunk Scotsman,” or “The Scotsman’s Kilt.” And if you don’t know what song I am talking about, why are you even here? Go look it up. Enjoy.
