Ah, that curled lip, those dangling earrings, the fingerless gloves: it must be Billy Idol.
Billy Idol - Hot In The City
You may love GN’R, you may hate them, but you couldn’t escape them. They were always on the radio. And besides, it was always fun to try and spot Slash’s eyes.
Guns N’ Roses - Paradise City
Oooh, and what could be more quintessentially ’80s than a tune from the “Miami Vice” soundtrack, by a former member of the Eagles?
Glenn Frey - You Belong To The City
And finally, one of my personal picks for worst song of the decade, and definitive winner of the ‘How the Mighty Have Fallen’ award:
Starship - We Built This City
Whichever city you may be in, I hope you enjoy the first weekend of the summer.
Don’t scorn me: I like “We Built This City”…
But it is an incredibly dorky music video…
That, at least, we can agree on.
