Any Fans Of The Proclaimers?

Wed Feb 22, 2006 12:21 am

Simple question, any more here?
Just listening to Sunshine on Leith, which IMO is the best song they've done.
So fess up, any other fans of The Proclaimers here?

I also own that CD but not a big fan of them.

There was an April Fools joke ages ago in a paper while I lived in Scotland saying that they weren't really twins and that it was only one person!

Personally, one of them would be enough  smile

Addictive song

Scottish bands I can think of....

The Proclaimers
Travis
Franz Ferdinand
Runrig
ACDC - basically
Biffy Clyro
Nazareth

Dunno what else there is....

But 500 miles is a great song. Even Borrusia Dortmund and AZ Alkmaar have it playing at their stadiums, or atleast they used to.

Ultravox?

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

Hi,

I used to have a album and did think, in-fact still do think they are a decent band. Favourites include, "500 Miles" and "I'm On My Way" the shrek song.

The best use of this song was in a Molson's beer commercial ...............
