Dexys Midnight Runners (currently called Dexys) are an English pop band with soul influences, who achieved their major success in the early to mid-1980s. They are best known for their songs "Come On Eileen" and "Geno", both of which peaked at No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart, as well as six other top-20 singles. However in the U.S., due to lackluster promotion, Dexys' only hit was "Come On Eileen", which gave the band an undeserved image as "one-hit wonders".
