A live performance of I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) on David Letterman, complete wit an entertaining interview. This is before I'm Gonna Be was a hit in the US.

  1. I've loved this song since I was a kid. Who knew that 2 nerds could be good rock stars? Lol.
  2. I loved seeing this video. I can still remember falling asleep on the couch in 1989 and waking up in the middle of the night and hearing this song for the first time from this appearance on Letterman. I bought the album the next day. I also recommended to a college friend of mine with the comment "Don't play the song 'I'm Gonna Be (500 miles)' until you're in your car and cruising down the highway". I'm so happy that a few years later the song became a hit from being featured in "Benny and June"
  3. John Carmack cloned himself and subsequently made one of my favorite songs.
  4. I just love accents! I don't care where they're from. Being a "Colleen," Irish ones are one of, but not my absolute, favorite! I also happen to love twin brothers. I was married to both brothers in a set of twins, Larry and Gary. (Boy I'll bet there are going to be some shocked people who read this! Lol!)
  5. 82 people can't even walk 5 miles ! ! !
  6. Like if your watching in 2015
  7. How I Met this song! Thank you Marshall!!!!
  8. 500 hundred miles
  9. Number 5 for my Top 10 list of catchy songs 
  10. they're strange looking guys, but they still kicks ass...
  11. I love dave, but he was rude there to those guys.
  12. U know someone has singing talent when they can fluently sing in another language even though they have trouble speaking it. I know it's the accents but I would have never guessed they weren't from the US until I saw this
  13. R.I.P. How I met your mother
  14. I love this song,my dad loved this song when he was a kid too;-)
  15. You gotta' love these guys! I mean in spite of Letterman's dickness! There is nothing that Letterman can say that can detract from these guys!
  16. THERE SO AWESOME BTW IM IRISH
  17. scotland's independent national anthem. DADADEDE DADADEDE
  18. They should've got a longer interview here. I have a feeling they would have if Dave could understand them better. Such badass accents though.
  19. Peter griffin should play the song with the proclaimers 
  20. Love this song! Amazing bass line!
  21. Actually sounds better live than the recording! Why can't artists sound good live today, i wonder? :0)
  22. why would people dislike this? before the crappy music that we hear today this kind of music was actually GOOD. not songs with bad words,innapropriate sences, and rap. it just sound terrible. i like the music like this better than the stupid music we hear that makes us dumb (my opinion. you dont have to fight with me)
  23. beam me up .... er forget it... lol
  24. The guy in the teal shirt has a boner
  25. Yes, this song was a LOT older than people thought when the movie "Benny and Joon" came out.
