Jingle Bell Rock - Idol Style

I've always liked Billy Idol's music.

"Rebel Yell", "White Wedding", "Dancing With Myself" - all very good tunes. But it's Idol's version of "Hot In The City" that - I think - is fantastic. (Note the Warholian artistic influences in the "Hot In The City" video.)

The other item that I appreciate about Idol's "Jingle Bell Rock" video is the editing, so all you tech-heads listen up. Watch the editing. Technology has made video and film editing relatively easy from a physical standpoint. That's not what I'm talking about. It's the conceptualization of the editing that is often difficult - and this video is remarkable in its successful execution of editing. Or maybe I'm just too geeky when it comes to editing.

Anyway, this is Idol's version of "Jingle Bell Rock". He does a good job with it and he looks like he's having fun and a good time performing it.
