To celebrate our Rip It Up exhibition, we’ll be compiling the ultimate playlist of Scottish pop songs, chosen by you! We want you to nominate the Scottish songs that mean the most to you, that bring back precious memories or hold a special place in your heart.

To nominate your favourite songs, simply tweet them using #ripitupplaylist or add a comment to our Facebook thread – and do let us know why the song is important to you.

To get you thinking, some of the stars associated with Rip It Up reveal their special songs here.

Thanks to Savage Mansion for the use of their song 'Elwood' in this film.

We’ll be adding new songs all the time so keep an eye on the playlist here and let us know what you think as it grows.
