Here’s a challenge for you – find someone (whose name isn’t Eileen) who doesn’t like this song. Like Delilah a couple of days ago, this is a DJ’s go-to when they want to get people up on their feet, singing and dancing.

It’s just one of those songs that keeps on keeping on – amazingly it is now 35 years old and yet still gets people up and about.

I guess if your name IS Eileen, you’ll be a bit tired of everyone thinking it is hilarious but other than that A1!
