Just play for the glory

Advantages: Hugely catchy, nice Scottish flavour without intimidating we southerners!
Disadvantages: Lyrics are a bit thrown-together

The songs put out by the exceedingly Scottish folk-rock band Runrig are not always the easiest of groups for a Sassenach such as me to get into. After all, some of them are quite strongly political - nothing wrong with that, of course - and the briefest l ...

How does it compare to ...

The sound of everyone in the whole world partying at once

Advantages: Gloriously loud party sound
Disadvantages: Not that original, but it hardly matters

Once upon a time, Kiss were one of the most over-the-top metal bands on the planet. Remember those face make-up masks, those exploding lights on stage, the (literally) fire-eating bass guitarist…And the music? Oh yes, loud, simple, and lyrically it was ha ...

I Have Become ‘Comfortably Numb’

Advantages: musical arrangement, ethereal vocals, hard-hitting lyrics
