Day 2: A song you like with a number in the title

Who remembers ‘Mambo No. 5’? That song used to be my jam until I started paying attention to the lyrics. Yes, that’s right; I scrutinize everything. I also loved ‘Seven Nation Army’ by The White Stripes, ‘Two Steps Behind’ by Def Leppard and ‘One Thing’ by Finger Eleven.ย 

However, I’ll have to go with the identical duo known as The Proclaimers ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’. I loved the song on first listen and as it grew on me, I realized that it’s about being devoted to a woman and wanting to spend the rest of their earthly life with her. I thought it was cute back then. I’ve never seen the video until now, though, and there are clips from some Johnny Depp movie I’ve never seen in my life so it ruined the image of the song for me. ๐Ÿ˜†ย But it’s all okay, for I don’t care for music as before.

Image result for The Proclaimers

When I come home (when I come home) well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who comes back home to you
And if I grow old (when I grow old) well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s growing old with you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walks a thousand miles
To fall down at your door
