    I remember well the Andy Stewart mega-hit A Scottish Soldier that dominated the UK charts in the early 1960s. Stewart used to always turn up on New Year's Eve TV in full national costume. I have to confess that it was not my favorite cultural experience at the time. Apparently the original tune was an old folk tune that had been used by Rossini in William Tell, and he'd pinched from somewhere else even then.

    You can find the song on YouTube if you are so inclined.
