A. Front

“Cradle of Love” is a rock song written by Billy Idol and David Werner for Idol’s 1990 fourth studio album Charmed Life. The song is the album’s sixth track, and was released as its first single. The song became one of Idol’s biggest hits in the United States, where it reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, but stalled at No. 34 in Idol’s native UK Single Chart. It was also Idol’s first, and (so far) only No. 1 hit on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart in the U.S.

The song was featured on the soundtrack of The Adventures of Ford Fairlane. It was nominated for Rock Vocal Performance, Male at the 32nd Grammy Awards. It was well received by critics, and was frequently cited as a highlight of the album.

    Great posts lately esp the Desire promo 12”. As for Billy Idol would be great to see the one below with the weird mix of Flesh For Fantasy. It’s not on CD to my knowledge.
