Yeah, G4B, I never really understood why that song is avoided like the plague in the U.S. I mean, I get that it's appeal is aimed at the U.K. and all, but it's not as if Americans can't relate to it. Sure it has bagpipes, but so what? As you said there are plenty of pipe bands in America and there are millions of emigres from the U.K., not to mention all the descendants of Scottish, Irish, English...etc. Wasn't "Mull of Kintyre" a top 40 hit in the U.S.? American genres like country and western music are popular elsewhere, even where they don't ride and rope and wear chaps, right? For pity's sake 'Mull' was even left off Paul's "All The Best" collection in the eighties!
