Scotland- I'm Gonna Be (500 miles)


Come a-singing with us, as we march for (almost) 500 miles around our village of Gifford, meeting shop workers and the local minister on the way!
We are singing a very famous Scottish song, released by The Proclaimers, who actually recorded some of their work in the same studio we sang this song in!
Can you keep up with us?
NOTE: To haver = Scots word meaning to talk nonsense!

Congratulations!
We are having great fun with these joyful children!
This song brings us on our feet immediately and makes us want to walk along. Quite an earworm.

Thanks for the tour around your place! I just hope the vicar can be reconciled with the kids after their last visit.

Hi Scotland,

What a really excellent video you made there!

Not only the video is perfect: bright, optimistic and very funny! The song was sung very well too!

It must have been a great experience for these children to be able to record the song in the studio where the original song has been recorded as well!

Braveheart has always been one of my favorite films, but that certainly isn't the only reason why this absolutely is one of my top-favorites!

I've watched it 3 times already and I'm sure I will watch it again in the future quite a number of times!

Good luck on the voting!

Kind regards,

Dave

We like a lot the singing and the tune of the song. Watching children walking all the way is really fun and also when they meet people.
Congratulations, good luck from Canary Islands, Spain.

Well done , primary 5/6! I think your entry is brilliant and I'm sure you''ll do well in this year's competition. I really admire your energy and enthusiasm, your singing and the touches of humour. I liked seeing the adults too - especially the two teachers in the studio! Best Wishes for Friday's voting. Fiona Edwards

Hello Michael !
I love your song !! It made us sing with your pupils ! And the video is very funny (we saw you dancing ;) )
Claude recognized some places of Yester !!
But above all, I like how the pupils rush at the end of the video just like William Wallace !
We all had great pleasure, thank you !
Good luck for the competition!
