"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."

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.

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.

I plan to walk 1,000 miles this year, and I tried to think of music to motivate me when this song came to mind... then a couple of days later I heard it on the radio and thought to myself, "Self... You need to buy this song!" So, I did.

I have always liked this song, and I don't know why I never bought it before, but now it is in my walking play list, and I expect it to bring me hours of pleasure over the years.

If you like it, buy it... If you don't... why not give it another listen anyway, it might grow on you!

By the way, igf you search for "I would walk 500 miles" in the Amazon MP3 store, this doesn't show up, but several covers of it do. Some of those clips sound pretty interesting too... maybe I'll download them all, and have a play list of nothing but different versions of this song... nah, why mess with it. :)

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.

I initially loved the song because it was a song featured in one of the "Doctor Who" extras during the David Tennant years, but then I grew to love the song on its own. It's a simple yet strong message about loving your other half no matter what you two go through.

I would give it 5 stars, but for some reason the volume is a bit low after I transferred it to iTunes, and ultimately to my iPod. But it's an easy volume adjustment for an awesome song.

I heard this song years ago when it was played while setting up for meetings. It is such a happy upbeat song. It took me YEARS to find it. When I was searching for some tunes to fill in some missing pieces for a gift for my parents I found this and IMMEDIATELY bought and downloaded it. Haven't heard the rest of the album but this song is a winner. Listen to it if you want a song to make you smile - NOT schmaltzy either.

I have purchased over 100 songs in the last two months after marathoning "Grey's Anatomy." The music directors of the series should be given awards for their choices. Even when the self-righteous hypocritical characters irritate me, the music continues to draw me back. I have also been introduced to so many new artist and their music beyond the show.
