My Top 100 Favourite Music Videos: #37

#37: "Cradle of Love" - Billy Idol
Release Date: 1990
Director: David Fincher
Fun Fact: Billy Idol is only seen from the waist up because he was not long recovering from a motorbike accident earlier in the year!
Yes, this is another video from the childhood. I remember being a young lad and thinking this may well be the sexiest music video of all time. It still stands very well today in terms of being a very sexy video, but it's also just in general, a fantastic video. Billy Idol's usage in this video is fantastic, being on all the walls in the house, doing his promo shots, and it looks really good. Joshua Townshend-Zellner does a great job in being a man trapped in his own house while this young lady starts stripping and seducing him all over the place. It's just a really damn good video that does its job well, sell the song in a very provocative way.
Note: This is the first and last video from the year 1990 in this list.

Here is the video for your enjoyment!
