Mumbles … Rebel

With this challenge I was instantly bombarded with things from my youth – “Rebel Yell,” “Rebel, Rebel” and Pee Wee Herman.

Either song is good.  Billy Idol is an icon from the 80’s rock era.  And David Bowie is just a legend.  You are probably asking why Pee Wee Herman.  I blame my boyfriend.  There is a line in the movie Pee Wee’s Big Adventure where he tells Dotty she shouldn’t get messed up with a guy like him, he’s “a loner Dotty, a rebel.”  Every time my boyfriend would go in the out door or out the in door I would say something to him and he came back with “I’m just a rebel” and would repeat the line from the movie.

So here are some links that I associate with rebel…

Going Against The Grain

He was different
Never really fit in
But all along
He had a plan
To do things
In a way all his own
To go against the grain
If it truly felt right
He was confident
In what he wanted
And wouldn’t let anything
Stand in his way
Some may call him a rebel
But I just saw him as
Completely self-assured
In doing what was right
