FlinterFile: Dexy’s Midnight Runners- Jackie Wilson Said
In 1982, Dexy’s Midnight Runners released an ode to Jackie Wilson. The song was written and first recorded by Van Morrison in 1972.Jackie Wilson was a singer, who had a big hit with the song Reet Petite. This song was the single after Come On Eileen. Since it was a cover of Van Morrison, they were compared a lot to Van Morrison, which made them angry, since they did not make folk, but mixed different genres to their own sound. It was their next hit, number 5 in the UK. Enjoy
