Billy Idol, 'Eyes Without a Face'
If you don't understand the lyrics just before Billy Idol sings the line "eyes without a face," then chances are you didn't take French. Or flunked it. The line, sung by Idol's ex-girlfriend, Perri Lister, is "Les yeux sans visage," which is French for – ready for this? – eyes without a face. That's also the name of a film by French director Georges Franju. In the 1960 flick, a twisted doctor is responsible for a car crash that horribly disfigures his daughter, who wears a mask to hide her newfound facelessness. Meanwhile, the doc abducts young women with pretty faces in an attempt to give his kid a major makeover.
