I decided to do Cradle of Love bu Billy Idol this week while I was staying up all hours doing this stuff for work.  And mind you, it isn’t like I said I was going to do THIS song.  I was just thinking about Billy Idol (shut up) and could not remember the video where the chick kicks the covers down the bed.  WORK ON ME said the work I was supposed to be working on.  I NEED TO BE FINISHED!  I WANT HAPPY ENDING!  Not sure when my work started sounding like a weird non-English speaking massage patron but it did.  And I would not listen.  I wanted to remember the song.

It isn’t like Billy Idol has a diverse catalog.  He, like AC-DC, had the good grace to just keep rocking and screw doing anything else.  You never heard Billy Idol do a duet with Dido, didja?  Nope.  Just like if Angus Young was out on the stage rocking and some fool like Neil Young came out to “jam” Angus would just go right by him or possibly push him off the stage.  Or at least that’s what I hope think he’d do.  So armed with the knowledge that there are possibly 10 Billy Idol songs that anyone knows, I went digging.

I’d like to tell you this was a big mystery and I ended up fighting some scorpions in a tomb but all I did was remember I had the song in my iTunes so I looked it up and found it.  Wow!  What a tale!  I’m sure you are all feeling like you got your money’s worth on this one.  Maybe next week I’ll tell you the story about how I found a dime that I thought was magic but wasn’t.  Video and lyrics after the jump.

Billy Idol – Cradle of Love

Well rock the cradle of love
Rock the cradle of love
Yes the cradle of love don’t rock easily it’s true
Well rock the cradle of love
I rocked the cradle of love
Yes the cradle of love don’t rock easily it’s true
Well now
It burned like a ball of fire
When the rebel took a little child bride
To tease yeah so go easy yeah
Cause love cuts a million ways
Shakes the devil when he misbehaves
I aint nobody’s fool
Come on shake it up
Whatever I do
Rock the cradle of love
Rock the cradle of love
Yes the cradle of love don’t rock easily it’s true

To rob the cradle of love
Yes the pages of love don’t talk decently it’s true
