Rebel Yell by Billy Idol
This song reminds me of the summer that seemed like one of those endless summers, when I was 20 years old. Every minute of it was spent with people I loved and consequently it’s the summer I have the most, and best memories of. We would blast this in the car to and from Capitol Hill, on spontaneous road trips to Portland, and when we would party. It was like the anthem of my summer, 25 years after it was even released. Whenever I hear it, I’m brought back to outdoor movies in Cal Anderson Park, driving 60+ miles for a burger, or getting drunk in a garage with a ping-pong table. Fist-pumping Idol-style, of course.
