I fear all my years of listening to Bass in the back of cars sitting next to giant speakers has finally taken it’s toll on my ears.
Friday, in my Keyboard Confessions, I stated that it is impossible to be in a bad mood listening to Come On, Eileen by Dexy’s Midnight Runners. For real. Find the song and listen to it and I am not kidding- it is impossible to have bad feelings. It’s better than Prozac. Maybe.
However, if you are like me, you are scratching your head because you can’t understand more than a handful of words. “Toora loora toora looray aye…” What the heck?
I am not alone in this. I found this video on youtube from a guy with the same problem.
And if you’re a lyrics junkie like me, here are the real lyrics for Come On, Eileen. Not that they really help.
