Thread Name: Review: Flower of Scotland - which rendition?
Subject: Review: Flower of Scotland - which rendition?
So the vote for which one everyone likes best is usually between Ronnie Browne (solo), The Corries (duo), Amy MacDonald, and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers along with a few more singers. But mostly the ones who sang before a rugby game.

Personally I prefer the original cover with Roy Williamson because he wrote it but then I guess that's just my thing.

I do think Ronnie sang it for Roy before one particular match as it sounds like he's trying not to cry so he can finish the song, though he does also sound very patriotic and it's a nice bittersweet but proud song.

Amy MacDonald is obviously younger and has a booming voice, smooth voice with the patriotic air. She isn't emotional like Ronnie (he did suffer Roy's loss), and she does put a lot of fire into her rendition.

And then there are the other covers. But which one does Mudcat like best?
