  1. It sounds the exact same, awesome.
  2. people make fun of them but these strange scottish twins staked their claim to 90s immortality with this bizarre song 
  3. Ah, back with the Proclaimers were new. And I was 5 years old. lol

  7. first time you hear this... OMG THIS IS SO BAD everyothertime... MAN THIS IS THE BEST EVER SONG
  8. Typical Americans, they know nothing and want to learn nothing that doesn't happen in their little world. If he was a good host, he would have gone out of his way or got one of his research team to find out where and what Leith was, instead of showing typical American ignorance and thinking he was being amusing by not knowing. 
  9. What a great upbeat song. I've enjoyed this song for years. Thanks for posting!
