Bagpipe Mania Monday

Today I had to get up and go to the DMV. Woe! But I just thought of music that featured bagpipes and that cheered me right up.

AC/DC - It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)

Bad Haggis - Cinderella Man (performing at Disneyland)

Schelmish - Aequinoctium

Forest For The Trees - Dream

Dance Dance Revolution Expert - Bag (follow the arrows with your feet)

What about "Big Country?" They had their one hit, which I believe was entitled, Big Country with the huge, flourishing bagpipes in it.

Good call! Except "Big Country" was actually two guitars, played through effects to sound like bagpipes. Video here:
Forum discussion here:
R.I.P. Big Country founder & singer, Stuart Adamson.

Apparently Slade made a similar racket in the bridge of "Run Runaway":
But it sounds more guitar-y to me.
