Songwriters don’t use “plaid” enough in songs.
Imagine if it was …
-Plaid Eyed Girl
-Plaid … by Coldplay
-Plaider Shade of Pale
… it might be nice in band names or for individual artists too!
– James Plaid
-Plaid Hot Chili Peppers
-Plaid Oyster Cult
-Johnny Cash … the man in plaid
… even as an album name!
The Plaid Album by The Beatles
note: I’m sure there must be some plaid in country music.
double note: “I’m dreaming of a Plaid Christmas”
triple note: Bob Dylan‘s Plaid on Plaid would sound even cooler!
… maybe it would be “Plaide on Plaide“.
Today might be like a game of roulette: all black and red.
… if things start moving too fast, it might turn out plaid.
Hmm, I’m surprised Big Country never wrote a song about plaid …
My favourite is definitely – Johnny Cash … the man in plaid

Thanks for the comments.
Dennis the Vizsla: Big Country would probably sing about tartan, but that’s just another word for plaid in another language that is used in English.
Tony: I was partial to “Plaid Sabbath“, but “Johnny Cash … the man in plaid” is growing on me.
Quite a few of both artists albums went “plaidinum” I hear! hee hee!
I’m still singing “Back in Plaid“!
Plaid Velvet doesn’t sound near as sexy…
sweetiegirlz: Bobby Vinton is probably rolling over in his grave right now … unless he’s still alive … or was cremated … or doesn’t like rolling. hee hee!
Just think if Metallica recorded “Plaidened” instead of “Blackened” and if the Rolling Stones sang “Plaid Sugar”, would there be a new type of sugar invented? And if the Beatles sang,”Baby’s in Plaid” they would make many Scottich lasses very happy.
S. Le: hee hee!
note: I’ve already got “Plaid Sugar” in the post. “Paint it Plaid” would sound kind of cool too!
