EUSA, do the decent thing and invite Dexys Midnight Runners to the Big Cheese in 2018

After Cascada's buzzing performance at Potterrow last night, following in the footsteps of other great names of pop music such as B*Witched and Basshunter to have graced the Big Cheese stage, our thoughts now turn to who will be the next headline act to kick off a year of Big Cheeses.


What you want from your performer is for them to have a song that is just quintessentially so Big Cheese. When you think of Prow you think of everyone belting out Angels or Mr Brightside in magnificent, intoxicated unison.


Whilst inviting a Robbie Williams or The Killers might be a tad over ambitious, there is one band who have a song that even the most ardent Big Cheese deniers love that could feasibly come to perform.


Dexys Midnight Runners, the wonderful people who gave us Come On Eileen.
The Big Cheese is rarely as lively as when everyone is pretending to know all the words to the verses of Come On Eileen before the epic 'too ra loo ra' finale.
