Billy Idol (Vital Idol) 1985/1987





I'm usually not a fan of remix albums. But in the case of Vital Idol, they absolutely got it right in the song selections and turning them into Dance Tracks. It's one thing to listen to these songs in a car or headphones, but it's another thing to have this blaring over the PA system and dancing to a hot chick on the dance floor. They didn't play these songs all that much in some of the clubs I went to, but when they did it always got a very positive reaction from those in attendance. There's really not much to dissect here since it's taking the original songs, extending almost twice the length and adding a lot of bells and whistles to the mix.

I think the best overall Remix here is definitely Hot In The City. The mix is so good that it's actually better than the original version of the song. But the one song that I always play more than any other from this one is To Be A Lover, it's got more guitars and the opening is sick,

Fave Songs: White Wedding, Mony Mony, Hot In The City, Flesh For Fantasy, To Be A Lover, Love Calling and Catch My Fall
