Saturday video break: I’ll be in Scotland afore ye

Have you ever heard the expression “You take the high road, and I’ll take the low road”, and wondered where it came from? It’s from a traditional song called “Loch Lomond”. Coverville had a great version of it recently.

I love a sad song with a good melody. Googling around, I saw on the Wikipedia page for the song that there was an arrangement for symphonic band of the song by Frank Ticheli, who was for awhile the professor of music composition at my alma mater, Trinity University. So naturally, I had to find a version of that:

That same Wikipedia page also informed me of Bill Haley’s version, appropriately called Rock Lomond:

I think that spans the spectrum of this song pretty well.
