Rebel Yell

Originalinterpret: Billy Idol
0 Kommentare

Im Jahr 1983 schrieb der britische Musiker Billy Idol, der bürgerlich eher profan William Broad heißt, zusammen mit seinem Gitarristen Steve Stevens (nicht weniger profan: Steven Bruce Schneider) den Song „Rebel Yell“ und produzierte im selben Jahr auch das gleichnamige Album dazu. Idol erzählte einmal während eines Interviews mit dem Musiksender VH1, wie er auf die Idee zu diesem Song kam: Bei einer gemeinsamen Veranstaltung mit den Rolling Stones beobachtete er, wie diese sich mit einem Bourbon der Marke Rebel Yell „stärkten“. Die Marke war ihm bis dato zwar unbekannt, jedoch gefiel ihm der Name recht gut – und so verfasste er noch in der selben Nacht den Songtext.

Von diesem Titel existieren zahlreiche Coverversionen, darunter auch eher grenzwertige wie „Tanz den Horn“ von Guildo Horn & Die Orthopädischen Strümpfe.

Songtext

Last night a little dancer came dancin' to my door
Last night a little angel came pumping on the floor
She said, come on baby, I got a license for love
And if it expires, pray help from above
Because

In the midnight hour she cried, more, more, more
With a rebel yell she cried, more, more, more
In the midnight hour, babe, more, more, more
With a rebel yell, more, more, more
More, more, more

She don't like slavery, she won't sit and beg
But, when I'm tired and lonely she sees me to bed
What set you free and brought you to me, babe
What sets you free, I need you hear by me
Because

In the midnight hour she cried, more, more, more
With a rebel yell she cried, more, more, more
In the midnight hour, babe, more, more, more
With a rebel yell, more, more, more

He lives in his own heaven
Collects it to go from the seven eleven
Well he's out all night to collect a fare
Just so long, just so long, it don't mess up his hair

I walked the ward with you, babe
A thousand miles with you
I dried your tears of pain, babe
A million times for you
I'd sell my soul for you, babe
For money to burn for you
I'd give you all, and have none, babe
Justa, justa, justa, justa to have you here by me
Because

In the midnight hour she cried, more, more, more
With a rebel yell she cried, more, more, more
In the midnight hour, babe, more, more, more
With a rebel yell she cried, more, more, more
More, more, more

Oh yeah little baby
She want more
More, more, more, more, more

Oh yeah little angel
She want more
More, more, more, more, more
