Billy Idol: White Wedding

Is it time to re-evaluate Billy Idol? He never was taken all that seriously but having just listened to some of his catalogue I think he deserves more. I’d forgotten just what a great bassline this song has and after a few listens in the car I sought out the video online and can’t believe I’d forgotten those wiggling bums in the intro . . . brilliant. As Billy says elsewhere on YouTube, this is how you do a hit song: simple hook, killer bass and great lyrics . . . oh and a world class sneer.
