"Billy Idol": "Rebell Yell"

Year: 1984

Billy Idol got the idea for the song when he was at a party with "Mick Jagger" and "Keith Richards". The Stones drink from a whiskey bottle with the imprint: "Rebell Yell". Then Billy Idol says: “Rebell Yell isn't actually a song name for the Rolling Stones - is it?” After a moment's thought, Keith Richards replies: “Uh, no.” Then Billy Idol: “Great, then I'll call my next album Rebell Yell. "

Annotation:
“Rebell Yell” is a characteristic battle cry of the southerners from the American Civil War. Unlike conventional battle cries, such as the "Hurray" of the Union troops, it is said to have been a sharp scream that reminded contemporaries of the piercing calls of the dead spirits and partially froze the soldiers of the Union troops.
The exact sound of the "Rebell Yell" can no longer be reconstructed today, however, as it is only mentioned in written sources. The last soldier who took an active part in the American Civil War was "John Salling", who died on March 16, 1959 at the age of 113.

Gen. John Salling

Lyrics:
Last night a little dancer came dancin 'to my door
Last night a little angel came pumping on my 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 sleeps in bed
What sets you free and brought you to me, babe
What sets you free, I need 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 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 as long, just as long it don't mess up his hair

I walked the world for you, babe
A thousand miles for 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
Just to, just to, just to, just to, 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!

Ooh yeah little baby
You want more
More, more, more, more, more!
Ooh yeah, little angel
You want more
More, more, more, more, more!

Translation:
Last night a little dancer came dancing at my door
last night a little angel danced across the floor of my room
she said come on honey I'm licensed to love
and when it comes to an end, God help us, because

At midnight she called more, more, more
with a rebel scream she screamed more, more, more
at midnight, honey more, more, more
with a rebel scream more, more, more
More more more!

She doesn't like slavery, she won't sit around begging
But when I'm tired and lonely, she sleeps in bed
what let go of you and brought you to me, honey
what has let go of you, I need you here with me, because

At midnight she called more, more, more
with a rebel scream she called out more, more, more
at midnight, baby more, more, more
with a rebel scream more, more, more

He lives in his own heaven
collects to go to 7-Eleven * 1
he is out all night collecting fare
but only as long as he doesn't ruin his hairstyle

I went around the world with you, honey
Thousands of miles with you
I dried your tears of pain baby
A million times for you

I would sell my soul for you, honey
To burn the money for you
I would give you anything and want nothing in return, honey
just, just, just, just to have you here with me, cause

At midnight she screamed more, more, more
with a rebel scream she screamed more, more, more
at midnight, honey more, more, more
with a rebel scream she screamed more, more, more
more more more!

Oh yes, little baby
she wants more
more, more, more, more, more!
oh yes, little angel
she wants more
more, more, more, more, more
