Now, I’m sure there are other phenomena out there that will be long-established and thoroughly-understood but the fact of it is this: there seem to be more utterly-known songs by Scottish female singers than by any other group or collective.
Let’s have some examples, shall we?
Amy MacDonald – This Is The Life
Amy MacDonald – A Wish For Something More
Annie Lennox – No More I Love You’s
Annie Lennox – Walking On Broken Glass
Sharleen Spiteri (Texas) – Black Eyed Boy
Sharleen Spiteri (Texas) – Say What You Want
KT Tunstall – Suddenly I See
KT Tunstall – Other Side of the World
Shirley Manson (Garbage) – Stupid Girl
I don’t know why it is but I only need a couple of notes of one of them, and I’ve got the song in my head all day.
