This is just the ular or "ground" of the song. In piobaireachd you start with the ground, do a number of iterations, then end with a restatement of the ground.

    The End -- The Doors
    Jeremy -- PJ
    A few Boards of C songs
    Angel -- Massive Attack
    Glory Box -- Portis Head
    Wondering Outloud -- Jethro Tull
    Mercy Street -- Peter Gabriel
    Man in the Box -- AIC (such a dark sound)
    When Dolphins Cry -- Live

    The most heart wrenching of all songs I have ever heard:

    Lament for the Death King George V

    I am not kidding. It is on iTunes, search John Turner artist, Wanderer's Lament album. At least listen to the preview. If that doesn't give you a chill, you're not human.
