GUEST,DTM songs that are sneered at (67* d) RE: songs that are sneered at 27 Oct 18

"Way back when 'The Bonnie Banks o'Loch Lomond' was considered groan-worthy....until Runrig! Fair opened everyones' eyes; it is not the fault of the song, but how it is sung?" - Gallus Moll (3 posts up)

I loved Runrig's version however,
1) it's been done to death and is fast becoming cringeworthy as a result
2) upbeat versions are divorced from the sentiment of the song lyrics. If you know what the words relate to then "Loch Lomond" is in actual fact a lament and should be sung as one. FWIW, I absolutely loathe the line "the wee bidies sing" (boak).
