I love that Billy Idol song. Everyone always forgets about that one.

I always remember this pointless bit of trivia related to that song: one of the backup singers in the video is Bunty Bailey, the girl from a-ha's "Take on Me" video.

Ooh, "merman" is my word ver! Everything's coming up BeckEye!

BeckEye: This is one of my favorite Billy Idol songs. You are right about it being forgotten. I can't understand why though because not only was it a big hit, it's a damn good tune. The true definition of a remake.

I never knew Bunty Bailey was in the video. Thanks for the trivia tidbit. Have mercy baby!!
