    Edinburgh songs

    I want to compile a playlist if songs about, or majorly featuring, Edinburgh.

    So far I've got 3:

    Edinburgh Man by The Fall

    Edinburgh by The Lake Poets

    Streets of Edinburgh by the twins.

    What others are there? Any genre.

    To go the distance.
    To stop at nothing.

    Don't know if this counts but Shake Those Windows by Athlete begins with the lyric

    "Lives in Edinburgh
    Just across the road"

    ‘Goodwill City’ by the peerless Goodbye Mr Mackenzie
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Does "sunshine on Leith" count?

    Costafine Town by Splinter was about Corstorphine apparently

    Edit...I see they were from South Shields so maybe it was a wind-up....sorry!

    Rebellion - Grave Digger

    (it's probably a stretch to say it's a song about Edinburgh but the city is mentioned in a wider context, it's a song worth listening to just to tick off every metal cliche as it happens).

    Edinburgh Man by The Fall is the one.
    Smith lived in Leith for a couple of years. Low profile!

    Thanks everyone.

    I now have an Edinburgh playlist, apart from Pigs for Slaughter which I couldn't find on Spotify.

    I also spent an inordinate amount of time searching for NWPA when it's actually NWRA.

    Heart of Lothian - Marillion
    Internal Exile by Fish

    I saw a blue umbrella in Princes Street Gardens
    Heading out west for the Lothian Road
    An Evening News stuffed deep in his pocket
    Wrapped up in his problems to keep away the cold
    What it is by Mark Knopfler

    High up on the parapet
    A Scottish piper stands alone
    And high on the wind
    The highland drums begin to roll
    and
    On Charlotte Street
    I take A walking stick from my hotel
    #Persevered
    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    What’s the one that starts “oh Edinburgh is wonderful”?

    Not really what you're after but any excuse to dig this out. In my defence it's about Edinburgh, Leith in particular.
