If so, why would they go to the trouble of rearranging and performing "Ellan Vannin"? To be fair, they did totally murder it, so perhaps you are right. 

I like their version of Elian Vannin, but it was embarrassing to hear it described as our National Anthem.

Just as an aside.

I wonder how the man doing the radio advert for Santander would pronounce that figure ?

In the MR advert, he says the interest rate is “ one point fifteen per cent”, instead of “ one point one five” . 

It is 1.15%.

That advert is for a bank ffs.

I like Ellan Vannin. I think their version is a cacophony of noise.

I love the pipes in it and it seems slower, adding emotion. The beat is king.

Saw Clannad live two years ago and they had two sets of drums. Mad3 a massive difference to the sound.

I also love the version done by the Indian lady. Can’t find it atm but will dig it out of my hard drive later.

Is that walking down the middle, seaside or landslide?

Found it. The lady lives here and calls it home. What an honour for us. Brought a tear to my eye playing this one more time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COyf3rZoAx0

It is 5 minutes out of your life. Listen to it. Does more in 5 mins than the tourist dept does in 5 years.

As a follow up, I have just seen Sam Barks singing the same song and many others on youtube.

My boy was in her class at high school. How could he or anyone else guess at the heights she would reach in her career ?
