This is a repeat performance post from May 2013 but since there are lots of new contributors, I thought I'd repost (since I couldn't think of anything original - sorry about that.)
"Rebel Rouser" is one of Duane Eddy's hit records from 1958. By 1963, Eddy had sold 12 million records and he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. Among other awards, he has received the "Chetty" award by Chet Atkins (2000), the Guitar Player Magazine Legend Award (2004), Musicians Hall of Fame Member (2008), and the Mojo Icon Award UK (2010). Some of his well-known hits include "Peter Gunn," "Ring of Fire," "My Blue Heaven," "Deep in the Heart of Dixie," "The Ballad of Palladin," "Ghost Riders in the Sky," and "Freight Train" among others. In 2011, he released his latest album, "Road Trip." If you're a fan of Duane Eddy, you can check out his website here.
I heard the music of "Rebel Rouser" recently and just couldn't help but think of my puppy Tegan and how much I related the music to her rambunctious behaviour lately. She is almost 6 months old already and has learned the rules well. However, she is also into that phase where she's testing the rules and sometimes it's quite amusing and sometimes not so much. I'm still having a bit of a rough time getting her to "come" when called, especially when there are distractions around. But she is so sweet and loving that it's hard not to laugh when she's acting all playful and nicks a sock, a shoe, or an item of underwear from the laundry pile. Then she rolls on her back in a total submission and I roar with laughter.
This week's video (to the music of Duane Eddy's "Rebel Rouser") shows various stages of Tegan's life regarding the letter R. Enjoy.
