BILLY IDOL "REBEL YELL"   1983     REBEL YELL - The title track is a rip roaring fast tempo rocker, full of Rock guitar riffs and a stomping keybaord theme throughout, complete with Billy's snarling Elvis throaty vocal.  Add to that a memorable chorus its just a great song!     DAYTIME DRAMA -  A mid tempo Pop Rock track, Billy's vocals are toned down more than normal, almost crooner like.  The musical backing is reminiscent of the early 80s bands, such as The Police, The Cars etc.  Really nice song though proving that Billy wasn't just a brash, snarling rocker, he could pull it back a bit and sing a nice ballad. EYES WITHOUT A FACE -  Billy's first big hit, reaching number 18 here in the UK.  The slower tempo ballad-like song had a lovely melody which disguised the dark tone of the lyrics.     BLUE HIGHWAY - Back to the Billy we know and love, best to play loud! A rousing Blues Rock song.  Just for reference che
