Scottish twin duo Craig and Charlie Reid aka The Proclaimers reached Number 11 in the UK Singles Chart with their 1988 single "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)," which also topped the charts in Iceland, Australia and New Zealand in early 1990. Full of Scottish slang like "havering," which means babbling on ("And if I haver, yeah, I know I'm gonna be / I'm gonna be the man who's haverin' to you,") and a nonsense post-chorus ("Da-da dum diddy dum diddy dum diddy da da da / Da-da da da (Da-da da da"), the song, adopted as the theme tune for Scotland's Hibernian Football Club, later took on poignant new meaning when it was performed by the duo at Edinburgh 50,000 – The Final Push at Murrayfield Stadium on 6 July 2005, the final concert of Live 8, to symbolize the conclusion of 'The Long Walk to Justice.' The track was a hit in the US after being featured in 1993 romantic comedy Benny & Joon.

    The drum off-beat is way too loud and nothing like the original record. I'll write my own track and dump this one.
