rebel @ 12:10 pm

i wanted to hear "Rebel Rebel" by bowie (i think it was in my dreams)

i got to hear it
and

"Rebel Girl" - Hazel Dickens
"Aging Young Rebel" - Ken Nordine
"Rebel in You" - Supergrass
"High on Rebellion" - Patti Smith (twice)
"The Rebel - Johnny Yuma" - Johnny Cash
"05 High on Rebellion" (again)
"Rebellion (Lies)" - Arcade Fire (three times)
"Rebel Yell" - Billy Idol

and then i stopped it.


i never cared when i lived there
but i imagine
that as i get older and older
i'll wish more and more
that i had been James Dean.

Maybe you're too young to know this one, but it has to be the coolest "rebel" song ever... "He's a Rebel" by the Crystals, 1962. It should be in your rebel repertoire.

See the way he walks down the street.
Watch the way he shuffles his feet.
My he holds his head up high when he goes walkin' by.
He's my guy.
When he holds my hand I'm so proud.
Cause he's not just one of the crowd.
My baby's the only one to try the things they've never done
and just because of that they say..
He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good
He's a rebel and he never ever does what he should
But just because he doesn't do what everybody else does
that's no reason why I can't I can't give him all my love.
He is always good to me, always treats me tenderly.
He's not a rebel, no no no.
He's not a rebel, no no no to me.
If they don't like him that way, they won't like me after today,
I'll be standing right by his side
when they say
He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good.
He's a rebel and he'll never ever does what he should.
But just because he doesn't do what everybody else does,
that's no reason why I can't give him all my love.
He's not a rebel, no no no
He's not a rebel, no no no to me....

...Or something like that...
