Jack Campin Skye Boat Song in Gaelic? (14) RE: Skye Boat Song in Gaelic? 02 Dec 20

These made-up back translations of songs that history didn't arrange to have written in the right language are the musical equivalent of the fake mermaids that clever taxidermists used to sell to gullible wannabe antiquarians. Hebrew and Armenian have them too. Harmless until the myths take over.
