[Disclaimer: I am not a musician. I can sing. I remember most of the recital piece I played on the piano when I was 6. But I’m not a musician. I know what I like and what I don’t like and what will likely be the soundtrack when I arrive in hell.]

x | x ambassadors

I’m kind of sad that I posted a song by this band previously… because I would have posted that one here… but I don’t want to repeat. I love that song despite how heavy and sad it is.

Of course, there are more. The song I’m featuring here is one you may have heard… possibly without realizing it. The band was nearly finished with it when the Jeep Renegade ad tie-in happened. So that worked out. The song has also been heard on The Flash (the tv series).

Run away with me
Lost souls in revelry
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 and lend an ear


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


other x artists worth a listen
XX, The — Can you believe I had two artists for X? I had only heard this song a couple of times before I saw the band perform it on SNL… after which I liked it even more. (Ooh, a male and a female singing…!) On Hold

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
