  1. Absolutely love this song. Grew up listening to it then danced away to it in Branigans in Romford. The place would go wild when this would come on

  2. I danced this song yesterday in a club in Madrid. It was SICK

  3. Jesus Christ!!! Justin Hawkins from the darkness sounds so like to this main voice! for some moment today in my car thought was a tune from the darkness 😂😂

  4. I just came back from London and my wife & I visited this location where they filmed the video. We walked around the neighborhood for about an hour and made our own little video documenting our visit. I got a tattoo of a violin with the words "Too Rye Ay" etched on the violin. The guy that did my tattoo is Dennis Cockell at Diamond Jack's tattoo shop in Soho. He has also tattoo'd Brian Setzer & The Stray Cats, The Sex Pistols & More. Anyways I loved visiting this location and I love my new tattoo. This is my favorite 80s song!!!

  5. 80s the best years to ever grow up in. 47 now n i miss those days were also so simple

  6. Apart from Abbey Road….never has such an iconic moment been created than the moment Dexy and his band of runners appear on the street corner.

  7. What is the secret of this Daimond of a song?? Maybe the violin?? Come on ?? Ooooooh I know……when he sings "Come on" he gives me hope!!!

  8. I never noticed that Eileen isn't wearing a shirt! Not that there appears to be anything to hide there. Eileen is flat as a board.

  9. Just heard this song and thought how much we love it o love you my soulmate my rock I miss you always and forever fell asleep in my arms nearly a year ago after nearly eighteen years together I miss you desperately darling I love you always and forever 💔

  10. there's a song of cure who sound like this, someone know what i mean? please give me the title of the robert smith's song thanks

  11. I was in college when this great song come out (yeah, I'm an old fart of 57 now) and I've always loved this song.

  12. I've always thought the high pitched lyrics at the beginning and near the middle of the song sounded more like "We're going to Hardees!" than "Come on Eileen."

  13. I know the band got very tired of this song, and i understand it. It's a blessing and a curse. I remember an interview where the singer said he doesn't even remember the lyrics and wants nothing to do with that song. But….. from a fan's perspective, it's gold. This is one of those songs that i watch regularly. It's a good recording, everything fit just right, and most of all, it makes me feel good.

  14. When I was little I used to think John Travolta from Grease sang this song. The singer sounds a little like him. Just close your eyes and picture Travolta on Grease lightning with his friends singing this song.

  15. I'm on my early 20's and I just discovered this song on Spotify… I just can't get enough of it.
    Love the song, the melody and the video ❤️

  16. Love the song, love the video…love the song even more now that I know more clearly what he's saying.

  17. coño no cabe duda que los ochentas fue la mejor epoca musicalmente hablando, no la musica de ahora que es una completa BASURA….

  18. When you read the Lyrics, this song is far deeper than anyone could have imagined. The Johnny Ray theme is talking about a blue caller Crooner, who got out of poverty,in the States by singing, so he was beloved by Northern English women. The fact the song is about making your girl's life better, was the shock.

  19. I love this song but I always feel weird listening to it because my great auntie is called Eileen

  20. 1980’s man – way not the ‘ 60’s. jeesh!
    thanks for posting it – yea!!!

  21. I prefer the Celtic Soul Brothers or All in All (This one last wild waltz) from their Too-Rye-Eye Album.

  22. this was posted on birthday in 2014. my 29th! thanks for the nostalgia/cosmic coincidence love!

  23. So many of the included artists are not one hit wonders and at least one of these songs was released in the 90's

  24. Face doesnt for I picture guy who played the karate kid singing this song lol sorry if offended anyone

  25. I was 3 when this came out, and it was my favourite song. I only know this because my parents tell me I used to dance around the house to it. But I take it to mean I had a pretty damn good taste in music from a young age.

  26. Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman… and this. Best songs of the 80's ahem ever.

  27. This is one of the most adorable songs ever written, and the video stands not far behind. Oh to have a love where my thoughts "verge on dirty", but never cross the line into filth. Thank you from my heart for the great music, Kevin Rowland and your dexedrine-buzzed Midnight Runners. : )

  28. This was the menu music for NAMCO Museum on the gamecube. I would set the controller down and just listen to the music.

  29. this is a song about a guy trying to talk a woman into sleeping with him by saying creepy things veiled by nice words
    yall listen to to it once more

  30. me and the boys about to find God and probably beat his ass…

    Actually, It might depend on the sitch

  31. Never in my life have I heard a song that makes me want to slam my head in a door more than this song

  32. When I was a teenager this always came on in the pub at the end of the night, without fail, along with Sweet Caroline and Loch Lomond (this was in Scotland). Everyone would be up on their seats singing and waving their arms, lol. It was magic.

    If it hasn’t blasted Come On Eileen then it ain’t a proper British pub.

  33. I love this song. I heard it as a child back in the 80s. Didn’t understand a word he was singing, apart from ‘come on Eileen’ and ‘too ra…’ but loved it so much. I demanded that my parents buy me dungarees! Great times. 🙂

  34. And another reason why I adopted my nickname in high school. Leena became so much easier, than the barrage of Eileen jokes that followed me. 🙄😂

  35. This song was stuck in my head for some reason and I didn’t know the name of it, I just heard it on the radio and catalogued the word come on. I asked my dad, and he took my phone and found it forever grateful and it’s now on my favourite songs playlist

  36. Poor old Johnny Ray
    Sounded sad upon the radio
    But he moved a million hearts in mono…..what a line that is

  37. This imho is the worst, most annoying song, I’ve ever heard. Wtf is this alien voice, I could never guess if it’s a male or female. Nowadays it comes on the tv in a commercial every half an hour, and I’m starting to crawl out of my skin

  38. I started listening to this song when I watched The Perls of Being a Wallflower <3
