Michael Howitt

This song by the Scottish duo The Proclaimers was a hit in the UK when it was released in 1988 but it wasn’t a hit in North America until it was featured in the 1993 movie “Benny & Joon”. Had to look it up: the word “haver” in the lyrics is Scottish dialect to talk foolishly and babble. This is a cover of “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles”).

  1. Not just a duo – twins! They played the folk festival in Owen Sound around 2015 or so. Have you seen the movie musical “Sunshine on Leith”? Great versions of a lot of Proclaimers songs. Nicely decorated me Michael.
