Customer Reviews

Simple and beautiful.

I absolutely love this song and this video. For me, it holds special meaning because it reminds me of a time when I got so mad at my parents I was literally considering running away from home. At one o'clock the next morning I called my friend and told him what happened. He told me to meet him at his house and when I did all my friends were there. We got into his car and went for a drive throughout California's Central Valley, occasionally stopping and taking pictures or just lying under the sun in the fields. I remember hearing this song on the radio while we were driving and it really touched me. It helped me think about my anger and about my parents, and what I should do. When we got back I told my parents how sorry I was, and they forgave me. I have never forgotten how much this song touched me and how much meaning the video holds, especially for me.

This song is awesome!!

This song and video is such a breath of fresh air!!

600,000 miles!

Vanessa has such a clean cut voice and she sticks out in such a beautiful way. I never knew she could play piano so well!

Along with Michelle Branch and Nelly Furtado, Vanessa Carlton helped usher in a new era of female songwriters during the early 2000s. "A Thousand Miles," her first single, was one of the biggest songs of 2002, topping the pop charts in America and cracking the Top Ten in England. None of her subsequent singles came close to matching that song's success, but Carlton continued releasing albums...
