"Eddie's Song" is the second and final single from British pop-punk band Son of Dork's debut, and only, studio album, Welcome to Loserville. Released on 16 January 2006, the single found relative success, peaking at #10 on the UK Singles Chart, as well as reaching #24 in Ireland. The single was the group's final release before being dropped by their record label.

Music video[edit]

The video is fronted by ex-rhythm guitarist Dave Williams. He is seen to be a rockstar that has sex with many women, with the women quoting things in newspapers about Eddie, such as "Eddie rocks my world". The video then ends up with newspaper headlines, such as "Eddie had sex with my girlfriend". The video is of Son of Dork playing at a show. The reasoning behind the title of the song is that Son of Dork were thinking of a rock star with the first name of "Eddie", presumably the rock star Eddie Van Halen. The other meaning behind the song is to teach people to wear a condom.
