Legacy

The popular Canadian teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation, which is known for naming each episode after an 80s hit song, named an episode after this song. The song is playable in the music video game Rock Band 3.

Music video

The music video was directed by David Mallet. Shot in June 1983, at Ritz theatre, Elizabeth, NJ, USA. Aired on August 1983, it featured Billy Idol's then-girlfriend Perri Lister playing the harp with her eyes closed. On the video compilation Historia, the text commentary before this video states, "Indeed, a face without eyes," a pun on Idol's song "Eyes Without a Face".
