“Vive Le Rock” – Adam Ant

In 1985, Adam Ant finally hooked up with THE definitive 70s glitter rock producer (Tony Visconti) and came up with a song that rivals classic Bowie and T. Rex (two acts that Visconti produced during their creative and professional peaks). “Vive Le Rock” has the perfect mix of heavy, layered guitars and pop hooks. It’s a song that should’ve been a monster hit (and probably would have, had it been released in 1973), but wasn’t. Fortunately, most Adam Ant “greatest hits” collections since then have the good taste to include this.
