Dexys Midnight Runners - Keep going and going and going ...

Dungareed new wave band from Birmingham, best known for Come On Eileen, a catching sing-along song.

What does band name Dexys Midnight Runners mean - duracell-powered-truck-optical-illusionMidnight runners is the nickname of dextro-amphetamine (Dexedrine is the brand name, shortened to dexys), a so-called go-pill administered to soldiers to push thoughts of the risks they run during war missions into the background as much as possible.

It is also prescribed to ADHD patients. And in the past whole hordes of people are said to have swallowed it to be able to dance all night long.

Active: 1978-1986; 2003-present, GBR
