I heard this song the other day at J. Crew and I'm going nutz trying to figure out what it is. It has a kind of early 80's, blue-eyed soul vibe. At first, I thought it was Dexys Midnight Runners but my research leads me to believe it's not. The part that sticks in my head is this little string riff. Totally British New Wave Motown kind of stuff.
I made an mp3 of what I can remember of the string part. It may be wildly inaccurate but please listen to it and see if you can help me.
HELP ME MP3
Maybe a question to ask yourself is: what songs do I know that sound a little bit like C'mon Eileen? Any???
