Hans’ Pick of the day 6-30-08

Come on Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners was the biggest-selling British single of 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. The song has had lasting appeal and is often heard in retro clubs and on 80s compilation CDs.

The music video to accompany the single was directed by Julien Temple. It features members of the band wearing sleeveless shirts and overalls. Drummer Seb Shelton was fired from the band during the filming of the music video. Rowland had ordered his bandmates not to do any bathing or shaving of any kind, in order to achieve a more gruff appearance. According to rumour Shelton did not follow the orders[citation needed], and was subsequently kicked out of the band.

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 was also successful in Ireland, where it reached number one on the charts and spent a total of eleven weeks in the charts.
