I once said on Facebook that all bagpipes come with three songs preinstalled: Scotland The Brave, The Minstrel Boy, and Amazing Grace. Hearing this tune on the pipes always gives me a chill.

Both of these are in my collection. I could find a zillion more that aren’t, and I could go on the usual tangent about how you can sing this song – and many others – to the tune of the Gilligan’s Island theme song, but I’ll refrain. Instead, here’s a song inspired by Amazing Grace by Texas celtic band Jiggernaut called Amazing Grace (Again):
I think that’s a good way to wrap this up.
