he brought up "come on eileen" and without meaning to... challenged me.
i didn't realize until commenting on his post that his problem with come on eileen was not really that he couldn't figure out the meaning of the lyrics so much as he couldn't understand much more than "johnnie ray" when listening to the song!!! it is true, that is about all that is understandable when listening without knowing the actual lyrics:b
those of you wondering who johnnie ray is, here you go:
most of the mono-toned johnnie ray hits are about crying...
unless... jan is right and eileen is a drug!!!
(i mean sammy davis, jr.'s candy man was no candy man at all. he was a drug dealer, for heaven's sake!!!)
