It might just be true to say that Robert Burns' songs are even better than his poems.
They're certainly more famous. 'Ae Fond Kiss', 'Scots Wha Hae', 'A Man's a Man' and 'My love is like a red, red rose' are known by almost everyone in Scotland. But they pale by comparison with Burns' international hit song 'Auld Lang Syne' which, after 'Happy Birthday' is the world's second most sung song.
Burns was a world class songwriter. Here are some of his songs to learn and fall in love with.
