Come On, Eileen works perfectly for Kevin van Veen.

Scored again, Oh Van Veen

He's a legend 

Oh come on Van Veennnnnn'

We've got a song for Amaluzer if he plays. The Beatles " I'm a Loser".

Was getting confused there thinking that there was no way Beck: Loser was a cover of The Beatles.

... Different song though.

Works better than what I had in my head, which was just repeating his name to the tune.

The curse of the captaincy strikes early! I don’t blame O’Donnell,  just bad luck. Clearly was not intentional but his arm was out and that’s always going to be a PK. 

I'd blame O'Donnell for looking so guilty when it hit his arm!

He needs to get a poker face :lol:

I am sorry but it's got to be Come on Eileen.

 

Does anyone under the age of 45 know the tune to that? Kevin Rowland can't even hold it.

Everyone knows it.

I'd bet my entire net worth (= the contents of my pocket) that nobody on here knows 1 verse without looking it up on the internet.

It gets played at every party or wedding you go to in Scotland.

I'm not saying I could recite the entire lyrics to Come On Eileen at the drop of a hat but I think enough people know the general tune and basic lyrical premise to bullshit something coherent sounding.

1982. The scene - a pub anywhere in Scotland.

A tune comes on the video jukebox (it 's an upmarket pub).

A few folk start mumbling the tune.

The chorus kicks in and the singers ramp up their volume,

"Too-ra-loo-ra, too-ra-loo-rye, ay" they roar in unison

Then "Over the hill with the swords of a thousand men" 50% of them end with, thinking it was Tenpole Tudor they were listening to.

Checked the lyrics, I knew "come on eileen" and "to-rye-ay".  I prefer their song about darts anyway.
