So now, I guess I think this is a music blog or something

Because I feel like being random (I know, you're saying, and this is new, how?), here is a list of the 50 best Scottish bands of all time, as voted on by, I assume, the Scottish public:

1. Belle & Sebastian
2. Travis
3. Idlewild
4. Wet Wet Wet
5. Sensational Alex Harvey Band
6. Simple Minds
7. Teenage Fanclub
8. Bay City Rollers
9. Primal Scream
10. The Proclaimers
11. Texas
12. Mull Historical Society
13. Big Country
14. Snow Patrol
15. Franz Ferdinand
16. Bis
17. Deacon Blue
18. Fish
19. Jesus And Mary Chain
20. Mogwai
21. Runrig
22. Trash Can Sinatras
23. Del Amitri
24. Orange Juice
25. Nazareth
26. Beta Band
27. Biffy Clyro
28. Altered Images
29. Aztec Camera
30. Eddi Reader
31. Goodbye Mr Mackenzie
32. Fire Engines
33. Delgados
34. Arab Strap
35. Vaselines
36. Associates
37. The Pastels
38. Eurythmics
39. Aereogramme
40. Blue Nile
41. Boards Of Canada
42. Rezillos
43. Incredible String Band
44. Cocteau Twins
45. Dogs Die In Hot Cars
46. Spare Snare
47. Average White Band
48. Lulu
49. Skids
50. Shamen

It's a little puzzling that the Eurythmics placed so low. I guess maybe the Scots have a little different perspective than we do here in the U.S., where many of these bands probably have had no exposure, but still, it's weird. Also, it is my personal, totally biased opinion that it's an absolute travesty that the Trash Can Sinatras are not number 1.

So, can I sue you for negiligence for posting something that brought both the Proclaimers "500 Miles" and the Bay City Rollers "S-A-TUR-DAY Saturday!" to mind?

Heh, sorry. It's all part of my evil plan. To...make you think of annoying songs by Scottish bands. Yeah, that's it. Bwahahahaha (that's supposed to convey an evil luagh, by the way).
