Scottish Whiskey & Moose

Posted by shanoah on June 4, 2008

I don’t think I’ll ever look at my Samsung printer the same way again. And I’ll have to be careful next time I’m washing dishes.

In any case, I’m going to blame this post on Sean. Just because he got me on this train of thought. The fact that I already had mp3’s of these songs is irrelevant. Oh, and this post is not work safe. Considerably. In fact, it’s probably only safe if you are drunk and at a Ren-faire, if then. šŸ™‚

First, for comparisons sake, the unofficial Scottish national anthem, Scotland the Brave:

Scotland the Brave – sung by John McDermott

A song about the brave, noble people that are the Scots. But then, an unofficial versions been floating around for quite a while that shows another side of the Scots:

Whiskey (Scotland’s Depraved) – sung by Iris & Rose

Sound’s better without the sounds of the crowd, but you get the idea. (No offense meant to anyone from Scotland, of course.)

And you know, I’ve heard several Iris and Rose songs, and I don’t think I’ve ever heard them sing anything that wasn’t dirty. Like the Cucumber Song. Of course, I tend to mix them up with the Limey Birds.

Of course, it could have been worse. They could have been singing about moose:

The Moose Song – sung by 3 Pints Gone

And here’s the Moose Song. An extremely dirty song. And if you want to know as many dirty songs as I’ve heard, you might check Marc Gunns Renaissance Festival Podcast, which is where I first heard most of these songs (with special attention to episode 69). His Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is good, too, if less bawdy.

But then, Marc Gunn already pimps his own stuff enough that I hardly have to do it for him. I get a lot of enjoyment out of those podcasts, though, so I thought I’d share…
