This week I'm spotlighting Dexys Midnight Runners. These are the only two songs I really know by the group, but I love both of them.
"Come On Eileen" (1982) - This is the most well known song by this group, at least in the US, and before I heard some of their other songs I thought they were a one hit wonder. It turns out that "Come On Eileen" is from their second album called Too-Rye-Ay. Anyways, within the last month or so I've been hearing this at least 5 times a week between the radio and work, so of course, it's been on my mind since it's such an ear worm. I'm not too sold on the music video, though...I mean, what's with all of the denim overalls?
"Geno" (1980) - This song is from the group's first album, Searching for the Young Soul Rebels. I know that this was one of their most popular songs in the UK, but I've never heard this one on the radio in the US. I just happened to stumble across it online. I love the sound of the song, but, honestly, I can't make out any of the lyrics (without looking them up) aside from "Oh, Geno".
