Right, Stew. Sometimes my mind goes places even I can't figure. Maybe it's the tragic lives syndrome of artists I love--Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, Townes Van Zandt, Nick Drake, Jim Morrison, Tim Buckley & Jeff....

Any way....it was Gram & Keef, of course, and it was Wild Horses of course

Ride The Wind--The Youngbloods
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxTE3B52RN0&feature=kp

For me, one of the finest songs ever recorded -- it takes me places no other song can.

If you don't know it, a must listen.

Throughout my time reading this forum I've seen lots of mentions of Scottish and Celtic singers, but they have been largely in the field of folk music. I happen to like something a bit rockier, ideally with an electric guitar screaming away somewhere, and so does much of Scotland as for the last 40 years or so one of the most iconic (and successful) Scottish bands has been Runrig which has its roots firmly in Gaeldom in Scotland's Western isles. More than any other band they have captured the spirit of the nation and this year, when many of us are campaigning for our independence from the UK, I give you this, Runrig's signature tune.

And as usual there's a tear in my eye at the end.

Brilliant, DT. My wife and I were just singing this wondrous anthem the other day.

I don't know what Celtic music is, technically, but some of my faves are also pretty screaming electric & garage punk..the Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, Billy Bragg...Oysterband
Thanks for what I'm sure brings a tear to any good Scotsman or anyone with a love of music and a heart!

Share some more rocking electric Celtic bands.

Runrig - "Running to the Light"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUhxXxuAshA

Astronaut Captain Laurel Clark, USN, served for some time with US Navy Submarine Squadron at Holy Loch, Scotland, and there she became a fan of the Scottish band Runrig. When she joined the ill-fated space shuttle Columbia crew, she was sent a batch of CDs by the Runrig fan club. She took two of these CDs, "The Stamping Ground" and "The Cutter and the Clan" with her on the mission, and "Running to the Light", from the former, was her wake-up call.

After the Columbia exploded 207,000 feet above the earth, Laurel's "Stamping Ground" CD was discovered by a NASA salvage team among the wreckage in a Texas field . Surprisingly, it was barely damaged. At another wreckage site the shuttle's CD player was found, and inside that was "The Cutter and the Clan", which was the last piece of music that the crew of Columbia heard.

In June 2003 Laurel's son Iain came to Glasgow with his dad Jon. At an emotional private ceremony in Glasgow City Chambers, Iain, wearing a kilt to reflect his and his mother's Scottish ancestry, presented the CD to members of Runrig. Jon couldn't thank the band enough for the part they played in his wife's life. He added: "I felt it was important to thank the group for what they did for Laurel. "Her time on earth -- and in space -- was enhanced by their music."

The CD as put on display in an exhibition of Runrig memorabilia in Lochmaddy on the island of North Uist.

Nice, BF....Townes' music fills my soul and breaks my heart...doesn't get any better.

What a gift those unreleased songs are...from the "In The Beginning" release!

Yeah, isn't that a funny story. He is quite funny with his between-songs-banter.

If you don't have his Live At The Old Quarter--get it! 27 tracks of brilliant, live Townes!

The Raveonettes remind me a lot of Velvet Undergorund here, even the drumming sounds of Moe...that driving beat.
