Too ra loo ra too ra loo rye aye

Start singing “too ra loo ra too ra loo rye aye” to anyone of a certain age (around about mine), and I suspect many of us will start, if not actually dancing, then at least tapping our toes.

The song is “Come on Eileen” from the 1982 album by Dexy’s Midnight Runners. I found it impossible not to dance then, and nothing much has changed.

  1. Yay! Yay! Yay! Still dancing and singing!! This is such an awesome song! ‘We’re far too young and clever!’ 😄
    Really – I can’t stop patting myself on the shoulder for thinking of this challenge! 😄

    • It is an excellent challenge; I’m so glad you thought of it.
      I was going to use the “far too young and clever” line as my post title, but I couldn’t find the photo I wanted to go with it. 😬
