Rebel Rebel

Rebel-Rebel is a perfect idea for a song:

Got your mother in a whirl, she’s not sure if you’re a boy or a girl. You tore your dress, your face is a mess, but hey baby your hair’s all right, so hey baby, let’s stay out tonight.

It is not a story about I. It is not a story about you. It is not a story to lecture or educate anyone. It is simply a sharing of a moment, brilliantly put together, brilliantly lined with pop guitar, bass and drums to make you dance. What more do you want from a song?

Sometimes songs do tell a deep and meaningful story, but that is not necessary for a song to be great.

Hey baby let’s stay out tonight, despite all that might be wrong, here’s the silver lining. I don’t care; I even like the torn dress and the mess of a face. It’s beautiful!!!

So here’s to the brilliant song writer who delivers words and music to make you dance and appreciate the beauty in life. Here’s to the true old school delivered with class!
