Scottish songs

The sole purpose of this list is to make clear what songs are Scottish, from that of Irish. Many ignorant morons assume Celtic music to mean only Irish music; when ‘Celtic’ would apply to any indigenous folk music belonging to a country considered Celtic i.e., Scotland, Ireland, Wales, the regions of Cornwall and Brittany, and even areas such as Nova Scotia in Canada, where a population of people of Scottish decent reside. Scottish folk songs, modern and traditional, are of the genre: Celtic. If the singer is singing in Scottish Gaelic, or Scots, then it is Scottish, regardless of whether or not you can reconcile within your ignorant mind the fact that Scottish and Irish words and names can often sound similar, whether spoken in their naive Gaelic forms, or when anglicized. Now, if the singer is singing in Irish, or some form of English, then it’s probably an Irish song. To tell the difference between these two similar types of indigenous music, simply type into google: is this a Scottish song, or Irish?

Even websites setup specifically for the purpose of listing Irish songs, or ‘Celtic‘ songs, as those ignorant fools would have them referred; you find glaring mistakes; glaring. Honestly, if your into Scottish or Irish folk music, then what utter moron would seriously think that Loch Lommond was an Irish song? Or that Mhàiri’s Wedding was an Irish song, or Piper o’ Dundee was. Dundee? Piper? These two words alone should be big enough clues as to the songs origin. But I know whats making it a wee bit tricky to discern; its the O’ part, isn’t it? You see that and immediately assume that you can claim this particular song, or that particular song as Irish, simply through your own uneducated idiocy. But those Irish songs that use words like the aforementioned wee, or auld, lassie, or bonnie (Here’s a hint; they’re Scots words) are only served by this very same level of ignorance, for even then, all simply assume that; whelp, if its Celtic music, it must be Irish, after all that’s what Celtic music is, so even if the song is based on a Burns poem, or about some Scottish warrior, battle or king, and the tune was composed in Scotland by a Scotsman; by golly if it’s referred to as Celtic, then by-gum its gotsta be Irish don’tcha know. Fucking ridiculous.

Listed below are Scottish songs that are Scottish, obviously being Scottish songs they are Scottish. To be clear, these songs are Scottish. Lets all repeat that last part as it’s pretty important in regards to a list such as this, ya know; a Scottish list of Scottish songs, about Scotland or originating in Scotland. Scottish songs; a list, of Scottish songs.
