Dexys Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen Single [1982]

"Come On Eileen" was a single released by Dexy's Midnight Runners in 1982. The song was written by Kevin Rowland, "Big" Jim Paterson, and Billy Adams; it was produced by Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley. It originally appeared on the album Too-Rye-Ay. It was their first #1 hit in the United Kingdom since 1980's "Geno".
The song won Best British Single at the 1983 Brit Awards.

The song begins with Celtic-style fiddle played over a drum beat, with the bass guitar and piano providing accompaniment. An extended version has an additional intro of a Celtic fiddle solo, playing Thomas Moore's Irish folk song Believe Me, if All Those Endearing Young Charms.
The chorus was loosely inspired by the song "A Man Like Me" by the 1960s British soul group Jimmy James and the Vagabonds.
In the British charts, the song spent four weeks at number one in August 1982. This success was repeated around the globe; spending five weeks as the Kent Report's number one in Australia and reaching number one in April 1983 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States.

The song reached #18 on VH1's Top 100 Songs of the 1980s.
The song was named #1 on VH1's 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80s.

Ένα από τα αγαπημένα μου τραγούδια από την δεκαετία του '80 από ένα μεγάλο συγκρότημα.
Πρέπει - όσοι δεν έχετε ήδη - να ακούσετε και το πρώτο τους άλμπουμ Searching for the Young Soul Rebels.
