The Musical Indyref

OK, so we're nowhere near the Civil Rights Movement in terms of musical accompaniment for the campaign for Scottish Independence so far.  However, I thought I'd collect together some of the offerings of our musical fraternity about the Indyref.  The top one, Dick Gaughan's Both Sides of the Tweed was originally written after the 1979 referendum for a Scottish Parliament was gerrymandered into failure by the UK Government. However, it's as relevant to the Indyref as the day it was written, especially as Fettered Together try to paint post-independence rUK Citizens as "Foreigners" (as if that was something derogatory). If anyone comes across any more, please let me know and I'll add them.
