The Proclaimers

When the Scottish duo of Craig and Charlie Reid emerged in 1987, they were immediately compared to the Everly Brothers. Considering their energetic, melodic folk-rock, the comparison made some sense, even though the Proclaimers didn't really sound like the Everlys. Instead, the band was a post-punk pop band, aggressively displaying their thick accents on sweet, infectiously melodic songs about love, politics, and life in Scotland. After two albums in the late '80s (This Is the Story [1987], Sunshine on Leith [1988]), the band disappeared for several years, suffering from personal problems and severe writer's block. When their 1988 song "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" was used in the 1993 film Benny & Joon, the Proclaimers began to receive massive radio airplay in America, sending them into the Top Ten in the U.S., as well as the rest of the world; it was their first taste of real success. Luckily, they were close to completing their third album at the time, Hit the Highway, leaving them in a position to capitalize on their success. The single "Let's Get Married" received little attention, and the band pretty much disappeared. They made various contributions to several movie soundtracks -- Dumb & Dumber and Bottle Rocket -- during the latter part of the decade, but family matters took priority. The new millennium led to a much more fresh-sounding Proclaimers. They inked a new U.S. deal with Nettwerk, and Persevere (2001) marked Craig and Charlie Reid's fourth album. It was a return to form -- singing about the grime and glory of their native Scotland -- but also a sign of the prime of life. The band's fifth effort, Born Innocent, appeared on their own imprint, Persevere, in 2003. It was followed by Restless Soul in 2005, Life with You in 2007, and Notes & Rhymes in 2009. The ninth studio outing from the bespectacled Scottish brothers, 2012's Like Comedy, coincided with the 25th anniversary of their 1987 debut. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

oh I would walk 804 kilometers and I would walk 804 kilos more, kind of catchy?
Report as inappropriate
Being from UK, you would think they would use the metric system. I guess 804 kilometers just doesn't sound as good lyrically as 500 miles
