Cradle Of Love

I had to laugh this morning when I heard Billy Idol's "Cradle of Love" on the radio. I hadn't heard it in a while, and not only is it a decent song, but it had arguably the best video ever. If you've seen it even once, you know what I'm talking about. Uh-huh. Innocent-looking, girl-next-door chick comes to the front door of some uptight yuppie-looking dork's elegant apartment and wants to listen to a tape she's holding. He nervously obliges and - BAM! - she starts going nutty, taking off her clothes and dancing around his apartment like all it needed was a pole, a DJ and a bunch of chicks with names like Glitter and Diamond. Hot, hott, hott. All I remember is a young Unknown Column running through the front door after school, flipping on MTV, and waiting for the video to come on. This was in the days when MTV actually still played videos and before the days of easily accessible porn on the internet. Awesome video. Legendary.

Watch the video here.

God bless Billy Idol for that. By the way, I may just have to break out some Idol after hearing "Cradle of Love." He had some decent stuff back in the day. Don't even try telling me that "Rebel Yell" isn't one of the greatest rock'n'roll songs ever. It is. A classic.

I walked the ward with you, babe
A thousand miles with you
I dried your tears of pain, babe
A million times for you

I'd sell my soul for you babe
For money to burn with you
I'd give you all, and have none, babe
Just, just, justa, justa to have you here by me

In the midnight hour she cried- "more, more, more"
With a rebel yell she cried- "more, more, more"
In the midniight hour babe- "more, more, more"
With a rebel yell she cried "more, more, more"
More, more, more.

"Listen, bloke. If you call me Sting one more time, I'm gonna crack your bloody skull."

Once again, you are spot-on with your assessment of the "cradle of love" video. And if I may add, the moment in which the girl does the splits on that nerds bed, how she lands it with her palms and forearms flat on the bed, with her shoulders pinned back so as to accentuate her bossum while poses her tiny little bottom in a tight, tight made the young priest very hot. And very bothered. I need to go for a walk now.

I have the same memories of this video, running home from school and hoping it'd come on. Even when Alzheimer's sets in, I'll still remember her doing those splits on the bed. I feel like such an old fart when I describe it to the younger guys, I always have to explain 'Ya see, back in the olden days we didn't have the interwebs with the instantaneous nudity, we had to make do with what we had..."
