Early this morning Britons woke up to the news that voters in Scotland had overwhelmingly rejected the Scottish referendum on independence. Yes, the United Kingdom is still United. For voters in the NO camp, it’s time to celebrate—and how better than with a Eurovision playlist?

Eurovision playlist: Celebrating the Union

Sonia – Better The Devil You Know

The title of Sonia’s entry to Eurovision 1993 says it all… 

Celine Dion – Ne partez pas sans moi

Don’t worry, Celine. They’re not!

Mei Finegold – Same Heart

Scottish voters understand that they’re not animals in captivity either…

Linda Wagenmakers – No Goodbyes

She sings “no more questions, no more lies.” 

What Could Have Been

So independence didn’t happen. But if it had, we would have advised the YES camp to blast the following.

Sanna Nielsen – Undo

Claudia Beni – Više nisam tvoja

That’s Croatian for “I’m not yours anymore”

Blue – I Can

CatCat – Bye Bye Baby

Luminita Anghel – Let Me Try

Frances Rufelle – We Will Be Free (Lonely Symphony)

Here, here! Europe should not be fragmenting into smaller and smaller pieces. UK can move on with Constitutiom Revolution and make a more federal democracy, but more closer ideological. As it can become closer, we can work harder to win Eurovision.

Can we all stop hoping that Scotland was Independent so that it could make its début. The whole of Europe would be messed up! Catalonia would probably have gotten iffy as well as Wales, Northern Ireland or England could have split also, and maybe parts of Belgium and Kosovo (I know their recognised by some countries) could have done something to make their split from Serbia definite. This all my opinion and please don’t take this seriously, wishing a country was independent so they could participate is, admit it, a little wasteful. I am from England and it is not… Read more »

@Dar I hope you’re not British, coz if you are, you have no excuse to be so ignorant. Each of the 4 countries of the UK has a separate identity, culture and even historical language. I am half Scottish and half English. I have three identities, Scottish, English and British. Scotland has an identity that predates the Union. They have their own holidays, patron saint, and national heroes, including William Wallace, and Robert Burns. The latter even has his own celebration called Burns Night, where everything Scottish is celebrated. Even with a No Vote, Scotland has grown and its identity… Read more »

what a shame that the Westminster government successful achieved their goal and scared Scotland for the so called “consequences” if they vote for YES.

Scots missed their chance so they shouldn’t complain anymore.

So Stockholm syndrome prevailed in Scotland .. An opportunity to establish a true identity rather than one that has been created for them ..

NO voter right here, only due to the fact there was no clear plan in place by Yes Scotland though, however would have loved another new ESC country! Great playlist.

Forgive me for not being able to celebrate that my country is still under Westminster’s thumb. Not hugely in a celebrating mood.
