A genie soundtrack

It's warm. Instead of breaking genealogy news, today is barbecue weather. So a couple of tracks for every genie, particularly my fellow genies here in Scotland - I'm (un)officially declaring Runrig the (un)official soundtrack provider for Scottish genealogical research! :)

Cnoc na Feille and the ultimate Scots genie song - Siol Ghoraidh (The Genealogy of Goraidh) :)
Clann mo theaghlaich fhein... Bho linn gu linn, bho ainm gu ainm, air an sgiath seo dh 'Uibhist, 's mi beo an drasd 
{The children of my own family... from generation to generation, from one name to another, on this part of Uist, I'm alive now}

Hearts of Olden Glory
There must be a place under the sun where hearts of olden glory grow young

And one more of the best - The Old Boys:
The old boys are all leaving, leaving one by one...

Enjoy! :)
