I’m Gonna Be

In 1988, The Proclaimers released the song, “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)”…perhaps you remember it? I sure don’t, at least not in 1988, considering I was only two years old. I do however have very fond memories of this song playing at middle school dances and people jumping up and down singing this song like maniacs. Particularly around when the song hits the minute and half mark and this happened…

Da lat da (Da lat da), da lat da (Da lat da)
Da-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da
Da lat da (Da lat da), da lat da (Da lat da)
Da-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da
Da lat da (Da lat da), da lat da (Da lat da)
Da-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da
Da lat da (Da lat da), da lat da (Da lat da)
Da-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da

During The Superbowl, one of the Budweiser commercials that aired had an acoustic cover version of this song from Sleeping at Last playing.

Ahhhh, I’m not even a dog obsessed individual and remember fighting back tears. Who am I kidding…I’m sure I cried.

Recently the song popped up again at Pure Barre and I have been obsessed ever since.

It always blows my mind how an acoustic cover can totally make you FEEL a song so much more and really notice the lyrics in a whole new way. Slightly different feeling than my middle school days. Weird. Well, not really.

Have no idea what song I’m talking about? Don’t worry all these cool kids did when Imagine Dragons performed it last year in Scotland.

…Maybe because The Proclaimers are a Scottish duo? Or maybe just because they haven’t been living under a rock for the past 26 years. 😉

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I spent my weekend in Sparkle City leading a two day training. You know, just doing a little something like this:

Exercise

And now, I’m at home sipping on a Frozen Moscow Mule that I made…stalling on the cleaning and seeing what I can whip up for dinner.

6 oz. Ginger Beer + 2 oz. Vodka + 1/2 oz. Lime Juice + Cup of Ice + Vitamix = Magic

Oh, and I went to Dairy Queen, not once, but TWICE to have the featured blizzard… Salted Caramel Truffle Blizzard. I think it’s safe to say that it’s my favorite blizzard of all time. I didn’t go twice in the same day. Not that that makes it any better. For all I know, I’ll go again tomorrow. Kidding. Maybe.
