Artists and groups are either Scottish or have main members who are. * means original song is by artist or group and is not a novelty or charity hit. No, Hoots Mon wasn't by Scots and don't even mention Rod Stewart. Midge Ure has been at number one four times, with Band Aid I and II, Slik and as a solo artist. He also had top ten hits with Visage and Ultravox (Vienna was kept off the number one spot by Aussie Joe Dolce's novelty hit Shaddap You Face). As to the debate on the quality of the list, well, where do you start?
