Going for a song

May 23 2009
The Proclaimers‘ anthem reminds most Scots of home After months of campaigning, Shelter Scotland has just revealed the top song that reminded the public of home in it's 'Hometime Scotland's campaign: the number one choice was The Proclaimers' foot-stomping 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles).' The campaign was launched in July, to ensure Scotland delivers on the internationally acclaimed 2012 homelessness target. Singer KT Tunstall, rock band Idlewild and DJ Calvin Harris are among those who supported the campaign. The Proclaimers said: "Having a home is an inherent right for people, and one they shouldn't have to fight for, or fork out more than they can afford. We're delighted to be the top Hometime Scotland song that reminds people of home. It's an honour." Support was also registered online at < The crunch that stole Christmas Capital expenditure >
