Dancing With Myself – Billy Idol
Hold on to something, because this theory is crazy. Allegedly, in this piece, Billy Idol is singing about pleasuring himself in a punk ’80 style. However, the truth is that Idol was inspired by a 1978 trip he took to a Japanese disco, where all the people were simply dancing along to their own reflections in the mirror.
But it seems that there is a slight truth to the legend, as Idol told “Rolling Stone” in 2014 that he sees “some self-pleasuring elements in those kids that were dancing with their own reflections.” It seems that the artist was extremely impressed after seeing those kids dancing…all by themselves.
