Vanished Videos – Come On Eileen by Dexy’s Midnight Runners

Okay, this one isn’t exactly vanished. We all still remember it. But it can never be played enough. Great song, great video, and a girl in coveralls with no shirt underneath. Oh yeah. Enough to make a guy fall in love with Eileen for a long, long time. Here’s “Come On Eileen” by Dexy’s Midnight Runners.

    Not only remembering it when it came out, the subsequent years have proven the song to be one of the best drunken sing’alongs ever!!!

    So many good times with Eileen and Gino:)
