Billy Idol - “Eyes Without a Face”
Known for his “rebel yell”, his lippy snarl, and that dangerous mixture of peroxide and leather, Billy Idol soon became a caricature of the 80s bad boy once the decade passed. Yet, those songs that aren’t so reliant on the cartoonish persona remain fresh and timeless.
Inspired by a French horror film of the same name, the dreamy new-wave ballad “Eyes Without a Face” is one of those songs that never goes out of style. When Mr. Idol puts his fists down and his lips uncurl, he’s capable of making beautiful pop songs.
