Lochaber no more, Sutherland no more

I’ve been loving Spotify recently, ever since I got round to downloading it at work. It’s been great to discover some fantastic new music, but I’ve also been revisiting some tracks I remember from my childhood. I’m pretty sure most of the songs on this playlist were on the same tape that was played over and over in the car to shut us up! Some others are football related. It may not be the coolest list, but there are a lot of memories in those songs.

For those of you who don’t have Spotify yet, (and why don’t you?), the list is below:

  1. The Whole of the Moon – The Waterboys
  2. Letter from America – The Proclaimers
  3. Into the Valley – The Skids
  4. Beautiful Sunday – Daniel Boone
  5. (I can’t Help) Falling in Love with You – UB40 (couldn’t find Elvis)
  6. Somewhere in My Heart – Aztec Camera
  7. Democracy – Leonard Cohen (Could have been literally ANY song, we had them all!)
  8. Perfect – Fairground Attraction

Notable exceptions include The Saw Doctors (below), who haven’t made it onto the system yet, and the Beatles. The stuff I’d rather forget includes the Times Tables tape, the Sticky Kids (J loved that one!) and a sing along to the Lion King tape. Me and the Lion King don’t get on, but that’s another story…

  1. Quite a few of those songs were on a CD we had years back,
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pride-1-Best-Scotland-Various/dp/B0000075J9/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1248736100&sr=1-1

    I believe that is the one. The CD was called Pride – The Best of Scotland. It was a Saltire on the cover.

    Great list though!

  2. Could have been Doug, but only of it also came on old skool cassette tape! It also may just have been something Dad came up with to shut us up 😀
