2 Rebel Yell

Dude this song simply puts the name in Rock, I could listen to this song over and over again, it's that good!

In the midnight hour, she cried more, more, more. With a rebel yell she cried more. More, more. Ahh! This song always gets stuck in my head. One of the best rock songs! Simply legendary.

Simply a legendary piece of hard rock, one of the best chorus lines I've ever heard!

4 Dancing with Myself

This song just has so much energy, it's just fantastic. Makes everyone in the vicinity jump up and dance like a monkey.

A brilliant song to get up and dance to, can't help but sing along to this song!

This is the first song I've ever listened by billy idol.. Made me a fan.. !

This song just shows he was in a punk band before (as a whole the song is punk-ish, the riff is definitely a punk riff) - Metal_Treasure

There isn't much to be said about this song other than: IT'S PERFECT!

In this song his voice reminds me of Elvis so much - Metal_Treasure

9 Sweet Sixteen

Well, this song has been covered by many.

10 Cradle of Love

I was honestly expecting this one to be higher and I believe it has potential to be #1. Plus it's the first one I knew so I might be a little bias. - Beatlesboy9

The Contenders

Why so low? This is a great song and I love it, love it. - Metal_Treasure

"If I should stumble, Catch My Fall, can't get this song out of my head, it's so good!

My favorite Billy Idol song

16 Blue Highway

Most underrated of all his songs, only one catchier and more energetic than Rebel Yell!

17 Shock to the System

This is an epic song from a great musician, and it's one of my favorites. I really dig the sound of glass breaking at the beginning of the song. Idolize yourself indeed!

18 Adam In Chains
19 One Night, One Chance

On Whiplash Smile. Awesome song! Cool sound that builds and rocks! Tops Rebel Yell, White Wedding, and all the other great songs of Billy Idol.

20 Jingle Bell Rock
21 Rat Race
22 Trouble With the Sweet Stuff

I could have easily suggested other great songs from Charmed Life such as Pumping On Steel, License To Thrill, Prodigal Son. You have to give this album a listen if you never have. A truly amazing album!
