A to Z: “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)”

“I” Inspiration: “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers

We’re drivin’ down the highway
with the windows open
heading up 65 north on a Sunday.
Our tune comes on, our words unspoken.

Da Da da (da Da da)
Da Da da (da Da da)
Da da da dun diddle uh da

We alternate every other line
just a man and his ladyfolk.
Not just any man, but one I call mine.
Tryin’ not to laugh at his jokes.

Da Da da (da Da da)
Da Da da (da Da da)
Da da da dun diddle uh da

I flash him a big smile
as he bursts out his verse.
We cruise the road in style.
Just the two of us in this universe.

What is your favorite road trip song to sing with your loved ones? I *think* I only know this Proclaimers song, so was surprised to see they were still creating new albums as of 2015. Do you have another Proclaimers song that you like?

    Hey! I love this one, but I may be a bit biased :)~ I suspected the pick when I heard you humming and softly singing it earlier haha A great poem highlighting real life events as well.

    Wow, I also had no idea they were still going. Maybe random shows at casinos for the elderly… not churning out new material. Wonder how they sound?

      Yeah, I thought you may have picked up on the humming. Actually though, during my mini crisis earlier today, I was listening to another song, but it just kept flooding my eyes with these things called tears so I thought I would pick up the tunes with something a bit happier.

      Yeah, they are still going! They had an album in 2015 called Let’s Hear it for the Dogs. Wonder how it is…may have to try some out on Sunday. 🙂
