Oh, Billy Idol, welcome back to the blog after all these years. The last time we spoke, I had realized that one of your songs of which I loved was actually creepy as hell. You’d never know from listening to this song that this and “Cradle Of Love” were sung by the same guy. Sure, there was a little of that Idol-ness in this one about halfway through, but otherwise it was a very subdued love song with French words in it even. Both great, both immensely singable, but this one makes me feel a lot less wrong.
