Heather’s Song of the Day: Come On Eileen

“Come On Eileen” by the British pop group Dexy’s Midnight Runners is one of the first songs that spring to mind when someone mentions the words, “eighties one-hit wonders.” The song is infectious and energetic, with a fiddle hook that begs you to jump around. The band hit it big in 1982, when “Come On Eileen” reached number 1 in the US, UK and Australia, but nothing they’ve done since has matched that success. Since today is founder and lead singer Kevin Rowland’s 56th birthday, celebrate by watching the official “Come On Eileen” music video.
