Waking Up With… EILEEN

7 August 2022

This day 40 years ago, on 7 August 1982, Birmingham‘s DEXY’S MIDNIGHT RUNNERS
led by flamboyant frontman Kevin Rowland topped the UK Singles Chart with their international hit ‘COME ON EILEEN‘ (the song was actually credited to Dexys Midnight Runners and the Emerald Express).

The famous music video was shot in the inner south London suburb of Kennington.
The ‘Eileen‘ character in the clip was played by Máire Fahey, sister of Siobhan Fahey
from Bananarama.

C’mon Eileen…
