"Come On Eileen" by Dexys Midnight Runners (credited as Dexy’s Midnight Runners in-game) was featured on Just Dance 2 as a downloadable track until the Wii Shop Channel shut down on January 30, 2019. It was also planned to be on Just Dance: Summer Party, but was scrapped for unknown reasons. The song is featured on Just Dance Unlimited and 舞力无限. The song was also featured on Just Dance Now, but was removed.
Appearance of the Dancers
P1 is a woman that has two braids, wearing a lime green and white dress. She has high lime green and green-black striped stockings, and dark green shoes.
P2 is a man in a lime green vest with dark green shorts, jacket, tie, and lime green shoes. He also has a green hat with a lime green clover on it. He looks like an Irish leprechaun.
The routine takes place within a forest. There are trees to the side and a big waterfall flowing into a pond in the back. There is also a shining pot of gold in the center, that a rainbow shines onto towards the end of the song.
There are 6 Gold Moves (4 on Just Dance Unlimited) in this routine:
Gold Moves 1 and 3 (JD2): Raise your hands and face your partner.
Gold Moves 2 and 4 (JD2): Same as Gold Move 1, but facing opposite of each other.
Gold Moves 1 and 2 (Remake): Stand still and put your arms slightly out.
Gold Move 5 (JD2)/Gold Move 3 (Remake): Put your arms out. P1 has their legs slightly open.
Gold Move 6 (JD2)/Gold Move 4 (Remake): Spin around. P1 spins to the left with their right arm raised, and P2 spins to the right, with their arms out.
- A slightly shortened version of the single version is used in-game, which removes the intro and outro from the version on the Too-Rye-Ay album.
- Come On Eileen is the only song to be released on the same date on two different games; the song was released on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, in 2011 in Just Dance 2 and eleven years later on the same date in Just Dance Unlimited.
- Come On Eileen is one of the five downloadable or exclusive maps in Just Dance 2 that did not appear in Just Dance: Summer Party, along with Crazy Christmas, It’s Not Unusual, Should I Stay Or Should I Go and Spice Up Your Life.
- In the score screen, the tree on the left of the background overlaps the score bar.
- In the remake, the pictogram for Gold Move 4 tells P2 to spin clockwise like P1, but he actually spun counter clockwise.
- In a promotional gameplay picture, the rainbow is seen to be not as pixelated.
- In the trailer for Season 1: Astral, the tarot cards dub both coaches as "The Star".
- In the Just Dance Now preview, the pictograms are completely absent.
- In the Just Dance Unlimited preview, the frame rate has been dropped to 15 FPS.
- Additionally, the pictograms have default colors, and some of them are different from the final version.
- Two pictograms’ filenames for the remake reference John Travolta.
