Here are the 100 tunes to come out of Scotland that became my soundtrack for the year.
This Top 100 of 2015 playlist contains everything from the recognised, the little known to the downright obscure. All are treasures in their own way.
It's an eclectic journey through alternative rock, dance, electronica, indie, choral, punk, post-grunge, folk and... well see for yourself.

Part 3 (50-26)

50 Best Girl Athlete - Winter Sun.  Simple exuberance from 16-year-old Katie Buchan.

49  Inspector Tapehead - Weather Rapport. 

48 Spinning Coin - Think Tanks.

47 Le Thug - Paints. Where the Glasgow-based noise-electro trio come over like a warped Dubstar.

46 Mungo's Hi Fi ft Charlie P - Back To My Roots.  An irrepressibly joyous dub reggae nugget from the Glasgow-based crew.

45 Hector Bizerk ft Marc Rooney - They Made A Porno On A Mobile Phone & Everybody Laughed.    Glasgow hiphopsters put the excitement, vision and humour of their live shows into a three minute wonder. 

44 Young Fathers - Dare Me. As close as the blissfully anomic Edinburgh alternative hip hop combo get to a ciggie lighter raising tune.

43  I Am David Laing - Est-Ce La Fin.

42 Babe - The Warbling. Glasgow four-piece corrupt the ghosts of 80s pomp-pop on an intoxicating ‪synth-heavy opus.

41 Siobhan Wilson - Say It's True​.  A divinely cooing Minnie Riperton-esque folk-tinged diamond from the Glasgow singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

40 Le Thug - Pals.

39 ‪Halfrican - Life is Hard. Twisted garage-grunge with consciously recorded-in-a-dustbin production from the Glasgow trio.

38 ‪Art Of The Memory Palace - La Lumiere.  Where the Dundee experi-lectro clan put what sounds like a sublime contemporary twist on a chiming 70s John Barry theme.

37 C Duncan - As Sleeping Stones. Choral made cool by the Mercury Prize nominated Glasgow-based composer and musician. 

36 Machines In Heaven - Displacer. A vocod-electro nugget taster of  a forthcoming 2016 album from the bewitched Glasgow synth trio.

35 Chvrches - Get Away. This divine Human League-esque song mystifyingly didn't make the Glasgow synth-poppers newest LP. 

34 C Duncan - By. Classic-dreampop genius with aromas of Talk Talk from the Glasgow musician-artist's sublime debut album.

33 Rustie - Morning Starr.

32 Stanley Odd - Monsoon Season. An eerily penetrating single with Eastern promise fi Edinburgh alterno hiphopsters

31 Cherri Fosphate - Neighbour. Garage combo with a Glasgow kiss of a tune.

30 Ultras - The Path to Getting Paid. R-Rated Weegie angstpop's answer to Renton's Trainspotting rant from the Glasgow-based alern-rockers.

29 Eyes Of Others - Inside You. With a zest of Boards of Canada & Gary Numan, a fuzzy electro-pop wonder from Edinburgh.

28 Man Of Moon - The Road. Highly promising wild Edinburgh shoegaze-grungers burn the city down

27 Mark Knopfler - Beryl. With a familar flavour of Dire Straits, the band he led, the Glasgow-born multi-instrumentalist produced a solo career highlight with a single inspired by novelist Beryl Bainbridge.

26 C Duncan - Here To There. It's so familiar. The debut album's most obvious foray into more uptempo art pop - yet still with his now signature bewitching choral beauty in its DNA.

Part 1 - 100-76 From Ela Orleans to C Duncan 

Part 2 - 75-51... From The Bird and the Monkey to Auntie Flo

Part 4 - 25-1
