YES Songs

As the campaign for the Scottish Referendum picks up speed in its final month let’s look at some examples of the songs the YES campaign has produced,  using  oldies and goldies.

They use a  double approach to getting their message across:  political content in the new lyrics and in the background images and cartoons. They cover a range of subjects – history, a critique of Better Together propaganda, local politicians, Scottish Labour  and so on.  They are well  worth a listen to gain an insight into some of the ideas and feelings motivating the YES campaign which  are not   usually expressed on mainstream media. You’ll find others on YEW CHOOB if you enjoy these ones!
