5.0 out of 5 stars Great Song for Workout - Running Playlists February 16, 2011
"I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" by the Proclaimers is about as high energy as a pop song can be. Positive lyrics, intense beat, great singing and musicianship help keep this song on my running playlist workout after workout.

Scottish identical twins, Charlie and Craig Reid -- these two brothers harmonize and sing off of each other well. Though only a modest hit in America, hitting #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1988, it lives on as a stadium anthem in Scotland, and in pubs everywhere.

It is a schmaltzy love song with a catchy refrain. If that's OK with you, give it a listen.

"And when I come home(When I come home), yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home with you."

5.0 out of 5 stars I am gonna be the man who walks right down to you. December 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
This was an extremely easy downloading process from Amazon.com. This is a classic song that really portrays the Irish Mind set. The quality of the sound is excellent and digital. I use this song on my cell phone as a ringer. This song really takes you on a journey into the Irish world. I loved the song and sound quality. I would recommend when downloading songs or such that you first check Amazon.com first before your download. They have a wide selection of songs to choose from. The price of this download was less than a dollar, inexpensive and easy to download. It took a matter of seconds for the download.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thick accents, great song April 6, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a pretty catchy tune laced with heavy Scottish accents. All about what a man would do for his woman . . . like walk 500 miles . . . and then walk 500 more. Good stuff.

One thing, though, is there's a line in the song that sounds like "And when I havel, I'll be havellin' to you. . . ." No idea what that means. If it's "haver" I still don't know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Beat March 27, 2014

I had never heard of the Proclaimers, who turn out to be a duo of Scotsman. I first heard the song as part of the sound track of a Simon Pegg/Nick Frost movie and I really liked it. So glad Amazon had it on MP3.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far Great! March 18, 2014

I chose this rating since I was immediately able to download this music to my computer and to enjoy right away. I am so super pleased!

Why I love this song, reminds me of when I was in college and I really enjoyed it then and still do.

Like another song that I downloaded from Meatloaf, I also bought another download of this same song through Verizon's music store about 5 or so years ago and not sure what it was but I think it had to do with a limit of downloads maybe (?) at any rate now it wasn't able to play even on my computer anymore and so that is why I went for another download of this song. It is one of my favorites. So I am really hoping that I am able to have this download with a lot more moves onto my computer to cell phone and such, since they don't last forever.

My fave song now! Got it since I'm a Doctor Who fan and learned that David Tennant was a fan of the Proclaimers -- great choice on his part -- and on mine!!! :-)
