After their first smash hit ‘Geno’ the band regrouped and returned in 1982 with a new sound. Come On Eileen became the biggest-selling of 1982 and the 10th biggest seller of the Eighties. It was the winner of the Best British Single at the 1983 BRIT Awards. The band never even came close to matching the success of this record.
