Billy Idol – Eyes Without A Face
Billy Idol hits the top 10 in the USA with this song co-written with guitarist Steve Stevens and included in the album Rebel Yell of 1983. The song was released in 1984, having been originally recorded in New York, with Perri Lister singing as a background chorus.
With a soft, slow, ballad-style melody, the song reveals dark tone lyrics and in the title it refers to the 1960 French-Italian movie with the same name in French, Les yeux sans visage.
The video contrasts the softness of the song tones with dynamic imagery, earning multiple nominations for important awards, also thanks to a set with fog and fire machines, and sophisticated lighting, over an intense 3 days of shooting.
