"The Queen of Argyll" - by Silly Wizard (1983)

So there's a lot of useless time-wasting one can do on YouTube, but I've got to admit there's some really good music on there that's hard to find. Given my family heritage, I'm a little partial to Scottish folk music, and here's one with particularly well written and haunting lyrics from the band, Silly Wizard's sixth album, Kiss the Tears Away.

Silly Wizard, by the way, was a Scottish folk band that, while established in 1970, released most of their music in the 1980s (continuing a tradition like this in the midst of 80s music had to be pretty rare). No synthesizer, just guitars and mandolins.

(First brought to my attention over at a fun music Arts and Faith thread.)
