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. How I Met this song! Thank you Marshall!!!!
  2. 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!)
  3. Jeez, how young do they look!
  4. They stand up well live.
  5. Ah, back with the Proclaimers were new. And I was 5 years old. lol
  6. I love dave, but he was rude there to those guys.
  7. I've loved this song since I was a kid. Who knew that 2 nerds could be good rock stars? Lol.
  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. Actually sounds better live than the recording! Why can't artists sound good live today, i wonder? :0)
  10. i love the way the house band guitarist is really getting into it, like he;s really enjoying playing the song
  11. Yes, this song was a LOT older than people thought when the movie "Benny and Joon" came out.
  12. Lol I can't listen to this song without giggling the accent makes me laugh my ass off
  13. Long live Scotland
  14. wow. Letterman has been around for some time now
  15. The guy in the teal shirt has a boner
  16. WENT TO SCOTLAND TO BUY SOME TAPE
  17. 2:04-2:13 that Letterman/Proclaimers colaberation right there
  18. 76 people can't even walk 5 miles ! ! !
  19. You have a burr? No you idiotic Yank, it's how they speak in Scotland..
  20. 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
  21. first time you hear this... OMG THIS IS SO BAD everyothertime... MAN THIS IS THE BEST EVER SONG
  22. see that guys long hair
  23. people make fun of them but these strange scottish twins staked their claim to 90s immortality with this bizarre song 
  24. The blending was perfect
