This is absolutely brilliant!  To the tune of "Flowers of the Forest" a singer sings her own memories of Scotland!!

AMAZING!

What do you think??

Actually - it's that time of the year again when Voyager came out - 1996.

I can't bring myself to look at this in case it turns out to be Subo.

That sounds like a segue between "Islands" and "Flying Start"... :D

I'm not sure if it was stated clearly, but the song lyrics are original and have never been done by any other artist.  I can understand the comparison in terms of vocals but I was thinking that the lyrics are quite amazing for someone who has left their homeland and feels as though it will always be a part of them :)
