Oor Wey – the punk mix

Courtesy of those very clever and talented people at Yew Choob.  For you traditionalists out there, they promise to do a lounge lizard mix soon, but I liked the energy and the subversiveness of the punk version so asked for it first.  I’ve tweaked the lyrics in the final verse a wee bit and think this version is better.  Hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I did – and consider yourselves very VERY lucky I didn’t attempt to sing it myself.

Enjoy, sing along, spread and share!

I’ve uploaded an MP4 version of the video which you can download and save to your computer or mobile phone.  Click on the following link, and then click on the wee arrow in the top left of the page to download and save.

    F*ckin brilliant… cheers WGD and Jock for making my day! Brought a wee tear to ma eye and a swell o pride in the heart that did.

    With all the comedy, parody, wit and emotion on our side how can we lose?

  23. Nigel Mace says:

    Not my kind of music at all, at all – but brilliant and very, very moving indeed. I’m quite overcome. Should be prescribed as energising viewing before each and every canvassing slog. A terrific tribute to the dug and to all the people and energy that this video has so briliantly compressed. Strangely, as was once said of Wagner’s music – “Wonderful and wonderfully given.”

  24. JGedd says:

    At last, now I can say – fantastic! Thanks to you, Paul, and all concerned. I’m just going to watch it again. It’s already being shared internationally. They like it but are sitting with Scots/English dictionaries! The thing is – so will Better Together….

  25. Matt Seattle says:

  32. Loving the video. Would it work in a Reggae mix, do you think?

  33. Rod MacKay says:

    Rosemary, almost anything can be played reggae style.

    Put Dub side of the moon into the YouTube search box, hit play and smile.

  34. JimnArlene says:
