Thread: Music to my ears..........

  1. #1

    Music to my ears..........

    I`m an Englishman through and through and proud of it.
    Just had a "hot" debate with my mate over a piece of music. One of my favourites is a Scottish piece of pipes and drums and my mate says "You ain`t `kin wired right!!"
    What the f---s wrong with an Englishman liking a piece of Scottish music??
    His attitude has really pi--ed me off tonight.
    Rant over.........

    If you want to convert him, get him to listen to Parallel Tracks, Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. Mark Knopfler even makes a guest appearance on one track.

    Favourite tracks are The Gael (Last of the Mohican's) and The Bells of Dunblane which will bring a tear to his eye. I promise you won't be disappointed.

    The Bells of Dunblane i presume was made for the school children?
    Personally, The Dark Isle by The Blackwatch takes some beating but i haven`t listened to that many pieces of pipes and drums music.

    Both you and your mate need to listen to the Red Hot Chille PIPERS. For real. Also for more traditional music listen to a piece of music called Highland Cathedral.
    For us native born Scots the pipes and drums can move us to tears and incite us to Braveheart acts of bravery and occasional aggression. It's in the genes and we can't do anything about it.

    My dad was drafted into the army, it was into the Irish fusileers. They marched to pipes and drums, and he tells me it terrified him, so God knows the effect it had on the enemy.
