Billy Idol – Eyes without a face – 1983

1984 Eyes without a face by Billy Idol

Released in 1984, “Eyes without a face” is a song by English rock musician and singer Billy Idol, the second single from his album Rebel Yell of 1983. It was written upon inspiration of horror movies and one in particular “Eyes without a face”, about a plastic surgeon trying to restore his daughter’s beauty after an accident, by murdering victims to take their facial features and use them for his daughter’s face, except for her eyes, hence, “Eyes without a face”. It reached No. 4 song on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

 The video is the result of a complex, long video shoot, so harsh that Billy Idol’s contact lenses fused to his eyeballs during or soon after.
