    Anyone for a blast of Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell”? Totally irrelevant, of course.

    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 be me babe
    What set 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
