Scottish Twitch streamer furious after listening to Proclaimers 500 miles backing track

By Daniel Morrow & Sian Traynor

A Scottish gamer was left unhappy this week after hearing the backing track to 'I'm Gonna Be (500 miles).

The iconic Edinburgh song is well-known not just throughout Scotland but worldwide, with millions of people having listened to the the track.

A classic tune from The Proclaimers, the song is often played at weddings, parties, football games, and has even made appearances in concerts and TV shows internationally.

However, despite thinking they knew the song inside out, Twitch streamer Dando was left outraged to hear the backing vocals of the music.

The popular online gamer took to a livestream to share their concerns, stating:“You don’t want to, but my face tells a story.”

After initially reacting to the vocals for the first time, Dando was seen to seem confused before suddenly changing their expression to one of disappointment.

“Hated it…I hate it!”, they screamed at viewers as the deconstructed song drew to a conclusion, reports the Record.

After digesting the experience, Dando reached out to twitter followers with the caption: “Ever heard the backing vocals of 500 Miles?

“You don’t want to, but my face tells a story.”

And Dando’s followers were just as aghast at what they just heard.

It’s easy to see why no one has ever though to deconstruct The Proclaimers' hit before…
