Mony Mony – Billy Idol

This is another one of those songs that as a kid I had no idea it was a cover. Billy Idol rocks this song though, the original is pretty good though. It just seems like it may have been written for the 80’s and Billy. One interesting note is the live version of this song from 1987 knocked Tiffany’s “I think we’re alone now” out of the number one spot. What’s interesting about that? Her song was also a Tommy James and the Shondells cover.
