New Wave Wednesday: "Dancing With Myself", by Billy Idol

Billy Idol took the music scene by storm in the early 80's after making a name for himself as lead singer for the British punk band Generation X (also known as Gen X), which was formed in 1976. Idol's music straddled the musical styles of Punk and New Wave to create an edgy pop sound that produced such hit as White Wedding, Rebel Yell, Eyes Without a Face and Mony Mony.

Dancing With Myself was first released by Gen X in 1980 and had modest success in the U.K. Idol recorded and released his own version in '81 and it was an instant hit, enjoying constant airplay on MTV.Gotta love the zombie bimbos climbing up the side of the building.
