Independence? Let’s Stick Together

I’m bemused that the Scottish National Party has chosen Let’s Stick Together as the theme tune for this ad supporting their campaign for separation:

“You know we made a vow
To leave one another never.”

Bizarre.

The choice seems as ill-considered as many, more major policy considerations.

Anorak Note

I am aware that the song was also re-issued by the writer as Let’s Work Together (same melody, different words) but the facts remain:

  • It was originally called Let’s Stick Together
  • It’s best known (at least in the UK) from Bryan Ferry’s excellent cover, Let’s Stick Together
  • The ad features an instrumental version where the audience must rely on its memory to make the (presumably intentional) connection.
