Hi,

Does anybody know why Vanessa sings "A Thousand Miles" with the lyrics 'making my way down down' in some performances, please? Thanks! ;)

I always thought it was just how she some times pronounced downtown? Hmm, maybe I am wrong. I prefer the downdown lol.

It sounds like it in concert. She just kinda says it lazily and it sounds like down down

I think maybe it's just her pronunciation. Well, at least in the extreme home makeover video, it seems like it's how she pronounced 'downtown' I haven't really heard it anywhere else.

'down down' is really weird. It just doesn't make sense to me :/

Wonkies used to joke about how the way she pronounced that part it sounded like "Miga Ma Way" instead of "Makin' my way" and you can even hear that in the Extreme Makeover recording :)

I think it's just a combination of poor enunciation and/or audio from the event.  I do not think, by any means, she is saying "Down Down" intentionally :)

You can CLEARLY hear her say "down down" though, and she's done it in other performances too (e.g. the download chart performance).

Someone many months ago gave a reason which made sense, but I can't remember what it was.
