Retro Vid: Dexy's Midnight Runners 'Come On Eileen'

80's videos, like the fashions and hair, changed a lot from when MTV first launched (exhibit A below) to the slick late 80's choreography of Paula Abdul and Robert Palmer. I'm can't tell you how many millions of times I've heard Come On Eileen but I don't know that I've ever sat and actually watched the entire video. I remember the overalls and the doofy dancing on the street corner but what, for the love, is this supposed to be about?! And another thing. He keeps referring to "that dress". Ain't nobody wearing a dress least of all Eileen.
