    A much more comprehensive list than i could have done, but i have several things that i'd really like to see included which aren't here:

    1) I thought some Eurythmics tracks could be included. They did several good hits, worthy of inclusion in the list.

    I don't think one needs to be so pedantic as to exclude the Eurythmics because Dave Stewart wasn't Scottish: As long as Annie Lennox is in the band, there's a Scottish CONNECTION (especially as she's the lead singer), therefore, i think it's ok to include the band's songs in the list.

     

    2) Same thing with Dire Straits: Mark Knopfler was the main singer, songwriter, and focal point of the band, and was born in Glasgow and spent his first ten or so years there. He also speaks with a Scottish accent.  Some great songs from Dire Straits too, to expand the list.

     

    3) Please put in "somewhere in my heart", by Aztec Camera: I regard that as a classic which can't be left out.

     

    4) I see Big Country, but no sign of Stuart Adamson's previous band, The Skids: Into the Valley, Masquerade, Charade, etc, are a fondly-remembered part of my teenage years in Glasgow.

     

    5) I'd like to see the beautiful "Pearly Dewdrops Drops", by the Cocteau Twins - another fond memory of my teenage years.

     

    6) If including stuff by Midge Ure, why not - using the same logic as for the Eurythmics & Dire Straits - Ultravox too? "Vienna", most notably.

     

    7) I'd like to see more from the Proclaimers, e.g. - "I'm on my way", "It's over and done with", "This is the story". They did a great acoustic album early on - i'd like to see stuff from that included, and also other tracks from "Sunshine on Leith", as i've come to regard the three songs already on the list as rather hackneyed cliches.

     

    8) I think more from the Alex Harvey Band should be included: "Next", in particular, and also some album tracks. I'd love to see the quirky "last of the teenage idols" in here. It's autobiographical. by the way: Alex DID win a Teenage Idol competition when he was young!

     

    9) I'd love to see the beautiful "Chelsea Girl", by Simple Minds, included: A beautiful, fresh-sounding song from their earlier days, which might surprise and interest people who only know their later, more famous stuff.

    I'd also like to see more of their earlier stuff, like "American", and "I travel", as i feel similar about the songs already there, to how i do about the Proclaimers' songs included.

    Pardon me! I forgot to request the inclusion of another Travis song: "All i wanna do is rock" - a snatch of which was made famous by being used to great effect in the "Hellboy 2" film, when Hellboy gets spectacularly blown out of a window and freefalls in slo-mo to the ground.

    I had compiled a list too. Think it would be very topical to add a Scottish list. I've included most Top 40 singles by Scottish artists

    I don't see "having a Scottish member" as being reason to call a band Scottish. I don't consider Manfredd Mann South African. Men at Work also have a Scottish-born frontman, as do Talking Heads.

    I meant to have Skids songs on there. I will be adding them. Oh wait, they're under Shins. Um. That was a strange slip of the brain!

    Mark Knopfler left Scotland age 7; it seems a stretch to consider him Scottish; similar to Lonnie Donegan, who I also left out.

    I'm sure if the list is used, songpop admin will choose their own tracks by the various artists anyway...

    Elsewhere, people mentioned Rod Stewart, who's born in England and has 50% English blood. He does self-identify as Scottish.

    Both lists should have TTF in them. A great Scottish dance band.

    Well, there are a few double playlists, aren't there? - Solo Artist "Greatest Hits", and Solo Artist "Complete Collection", i mean.

     

    So maybe there could be two Scottish lists? - It seems like Gareth's list is veering more towards the "Greatest Scottish Hits" idea, while Jason's is veering more towards the "Complete Scottish Collection".

    In response to the points you made on                  Gareth:

     

    It's not just "having a Scottish MEMBER", in the case of the Eurythmics & Dire Straits (and Ultravox too, i think) : It's "having a Scottish FRONTMAN/WOMAN, who was also the major songwriter.

    Also, Knopfler - as i said - still speaks with a Scottish accent, unlike David Byrne for example. And spending SEVEN formative years in a country before leaving does have more of a cultural effect on someone than spending just TWO, as in Byrne's case.... (Yes - it DOES seem a bit of a stretch to include Talking Heads in a Scottish list, but not Dire Straits, i don't think.)

    As for the Eurythmics: There were TWO of them, which means that HALF the band was Scottish, and, Dave Stewart having all the presence and charisma of a magnolia-painted hallway, Annie Lennox was by far perceived as the major part of the band. And, you seem to be EXcluding them because ONE member was NOT Scottish: Are U2 not an IRISH band, then, because Adam Clayton is English?

    In conclusion: It's a small country, so why should it not  follow the precedent of the Scottish Football Association, by "including in the team" anyone with a Scottish CONNECTION? If you see what i mean. (Bearing in mind that i'm not suggesting the inclusion of people who just have Scottish parents, or second cousins twice-removed, or equally tenuous connections).

    That's YOUR fault, Jason! - I had to continually scroll up & down past your gigantic list when writing a response to Gareth!

     

    Only joking!  I forgot to congratulate you on your huge list - well done! 

     

    BUT -  I'd like to see all those great, EARLY Simple Minds songs included in it: Like  Life In A Day, Chelsea Girl, Theme For Great Cities, I Travel, Love Song, American......

     

    AND - more Proclaimers: Like This Is The Story, I'm On My Way, Teardrops, It's Over And Done With........

     

    AND -  Alex Harvey Band songs: Like Next, The Last of the Teenage Idols, Framed, Vambo Marble Eye, The Faith Healer, other songs off of Next, Framed, The Impossible Dream,  Tomorrow Belongs To Me......  (Not that knowledgeable myself, about SAHB's output - i'd like to learn more...)

    This is a great list with a lot of suggestion. I am somewhat surprised and annoyed Songpop gave not acted on the suggestion. I would suggest in fact splitting it into perhaps 3 Song Pop categories perhaps Scottish Artists, Scottish Pop and Scottish Indie. It could be in these cases Artist could be solo and bands with say a Scottish singer. Indie would be Skids, Postcard records, Mary Chain, Teenage Fanclub Glasvegas. Scottish Pop would be everything else. As Scottish Indie is where my heart lies my I suggest BMX Bandits - Serious Drugs Ladytron/Helen Marnie Camera Obscura
