Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

In Elizabeth Rosenthal's biography His Song: The Musical Journey of Elton John, it is revealed that this song was inspired by "Sun King" from The Beatles Abbey Road album. Elton said: "I thought it would be great to write a song with English words that didn't mean a thing, but that sounded fantastic when put together..." (thanks, Alexander - London, England)

Loved this song even though i have no clue what the heck its about. Again Elton and Bernie kick ass. - chezchez, bronx, ny

I heard that this song was actually a "friendly" competition between Elton John and Bernie Taupin, in which Elton bet his buddy that he could make a song sound good musically, even if the lyrics were absolute gibberish.

In the name of song explanation, Al talks about scoring heroin for William Burroughs, and that's not even the most shocking story in this one.

Back with Korn, Brian talks guitar pedals and Bungle chords as he takes us through the genesis of their sound and the stories behind the songs.

"Come On Eileen" was a colossal '80s hit, but the band - far more appreciated in their native UK than stateside - released just three albums before their split. Now, Dexys is back.
