Does anyone out there have any feelings for Renegade? I just love it. The blend of different sounds and rhythms. That too is one of my favorites. I always picture a man riding a horse lazily through the desert, then picking up the pace as he was being chased by a posse. I gotta get out more!
Hi Bev; Renegade is one of my very favourite Yanni songs. There have been a few discussions on this board about it, and it seems to be a favourite of many. I can listen to it over and over and I never get tired of it. If I have the Tribute dvd playing, I have to make sure in my travels around the house, that I'm actually in front of the tv when Renegade comes on.
It has a very sensual feel to it, especially at the start. You're right, it's a combination of beautiful rythmns. If you have the dvd, watch the expressions on Karen Briggs' face as she is playing it! I think all women love the song. I would LOVE to see it back in the Yanni concerts of the future.
I do have the video and I have seen the expressions on Karen Brigg's face during her performance of that song. She feels the music passionately, not only Renegade but all Yanni's music. I love watching her play in Nostalgia; it's so beautiful and moving. I think you know what I mean. Yes, I too, would loe to see Yanni add it to his next concert. What a treat!
My favorite part of that song is when the ENTIRE orchestra comes in to begin the SLAM at the very end. The timing of it is brilliant and the whirling sound the violins collectively make gives me the chills.
