Dancing With Myself

I debated throwing up another Billy Idol song, since it’s only been three weeks since I put one up. This is a classic of the masturbation music sub genre, yet it’s been covered by kids’ shows ranging from Kids Incorporated to Glee, as well as myriad other artists. The video embedded below, directed by Tobe Hooper, also seems to be primary visual influence for the television series, Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

Hot In The City

When I left New York a few days ago, it was in the middle of a heat wave, so as I return today, it seems appropriate to play Billy Idol‘s ode to my hometown. The video embedded here was shot in New York (my guess is Long Island City, based on the view of the Manhattan skyline) and was initially banned by MTV because of the sequence towards the end where his smokin’ hot baby mama is nailed to a cross.
