D80sV #58: Dexy's Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen

Daily 80's Video #58: Ah, "Come on, Eileen", easily one of the best tracks of the 80's, going on to outsell every other single in 1982. Kevin Rowland's voice is unforgettable. His overalls and armpit hair is also unforgettable. This song is possibly one of the funnest sing-along songs ever, drunk or sober. Enjoy the matching overalls (a look the Runners adopted for this album and this album only), the Celtic dancing, and the scary part at the start of the Too-Rye-Ay chant when the boys start after Eileen and the other Bananarama girl - yikes! Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV.
