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 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!)
  2. I've loved this song since I was a kid. Who knew that 2 nerds could be good rock stars? Lol.
  3. THERE SO AWESOME BTW IM IRISH
  4. 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"
  5. How I Met this song! Thank you Marshall!!!!
  6. 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
  7. I love dave, but he was rude there to those guys.
  8. I love this song,my dad loved this song when he was a kid too;-)
  9. they're strange looking guys, but they still kicks ass...
  10. Peter griffin should play the song with the proclaimers 
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. Actually sounds better live than the recording! Why can't artists sound good live today, i wonder? :0)
  14. How I Met Your Mother <3
  15. scotland's independent national anthem. DADADEDE DADADEDE
  16. Yes, this song was a LOT older than people thought when the movie "Benny and Joon" came out.
  17. The guy in the teal shirt has a boner
  18. Love this song! Amazing bass line!
  19. That's why Britannia ruled the waves.
  20. Sid, step the fk back. It's not you're show.
  21. 76 people can't even walk 5 miles ! ! !
  22. i love the way the house band guitarist is really getting into it, like he;s really enjoying playing the song
  23. WENT TO SCOTLAND TO BUY SOME TAPE
  24. wow. Letterman has been around for some time now
