The Proclaimers

I have to link to a cool little "Where Are They Now?" blurb  I just came across about The Proclaimers on TMZ.

Tracey and I have debated whether their song "500 Miles" should be added to the Playlist since a) they are BEYOND Scottish and b) the song is about a guy who would go to any lengths for his girl, which reminded us of yon Jamie Fraser of the House of Lovat.

I have resisted adding them until now... thinking their sound might be a little too modern day... but I canna help it, Sassenachs; I just love the song. And hey - I added Travis, didn't I??


  1. I think it could totally work. It could be some cute and funny fast-paced video with him swinging her around and kissing her, etc....or with something that happens in ABOSAA. I can picture Jamie and Claire as I listen to it. :)

    Well done.

  2. I don't know what ABOSAA is (book 6?) but I agree! It could definitely be cute. It's Jamie.

  3. ABOSAA = A Breath of Snow and Ashes--book #6.

  4. Yep, that's it. Although the part I'm referring to is in no way cute...but the lyrics could work with it. :(
