john c BS: Scottish National Anthem (59* d) RE: BS: Scottish National Anthem 24 Jan 01


Am I alone in thinking that Flower of Scotland is a load of absolute tosh? "wee bit hill and glen" ......pure kitsch. Roy Williamson wrote a lot of much better stuff (listen to Hills of Ardmorn) and I think even he was embarrased by the songs success. And, as for Caledonia - Ive always seen that as a poor rip-off of Robin Williamsons October Song - and nothing like as good.
My vote also goes for The Freedom Come All Ye. Great tune and great words.
Hoots,
John
