This week’s song pick is…

X Ambassadors

“Renegades”

I love this song, but the video takes the song to an even higher level and makes the song even more powerful. You’ll notice that there are some fascinating things happening. Multiple disabled people are going above and beyond and breaking the rules. They’re renegades and nothing can stop them.

The lead singer’s brother Casey is the keyboardist for the band and he’s blind. The video is personal to them for this reason. You can watch it below. The music starts at about 1:00.

 

Lyrics

Run away with me
Lost souls and reverie
Running wild and running free
Two kids, you and me

And I say
Hey, hey hey hey
Living like we’re renegades
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Living like we’re renegades
Renegades, renegades

Long live the pioneers
Rebels and mutineers
Go forth and have no fear
Come close the end is near

And I say hey, hey hey hey
Living like we’re renegades
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Living like we’re renegades
Renegades, renegades

All hail the underdogs
All hail the new kids
All hail the outlaws
Spielberg’s and Kubrick’s

It’s our time to make a move
It’s our time to make amends
It’s our time to break the rules
Let’s begin

And I say hey, hey hey hey
Living like we’re renegades
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Leaving like we’re renegades
Renegades, renegades

This song is on the album VHS

    1. I thought the video was cool too. I was amazed and found myself cheering them on. To me, the video makes the song so much more powerful and I didn’t know that’s what the song was about until after I saw it. Thanks for checking it out! 🖤 I’m really enjoying this meme!

      1. It’s definitely a powerful video.

        Thanks, it’s just something simple but I’m a music fan and thought it was pretty cool just to be a bit different. I’m bound to check out the bloggers who do my meme, it’d be poor form not to and it’s interesting to see what song/songs get picked.😀

    Awesome post! I loved the video and the band. So amazing to see people overcome disabilities to live normal lives. They are so strong, not just of body, of mind also. 💙
