Clann An Drumma – “Boudica’s Revenge”

“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!

The LaFontaines – “Release The Hounds”

[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.

Andy Stewart – “Donald Where’s Your Troosers”

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.
