By the way people, how do you understand the title "Renegade"?

From dictionary:

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/renegade

1 : a deserter from one faith, cause, or allegiance to another
2 : an individual who rejects lawful or conventional behavior


Is it definition 1 or 2 here?
Is he some "traitor" who left his gangster's life and started beating his former friends?
Or is he an outlaw who rejects social norms?

@yerzmyey would be the man to ask, but I don't think he's been here for a while. The catchy AY on More Tea Vicar is a cover of something apparently. If I once knew — I've forgotten. Does anyone know what it's a cover of?

Ah thanks! It took me a while to make sense of this.

Dragon's Legend is a song recorded by an Italian band called Koto, and released in 1988. It contains samples from Dragon's Lair, a Speccy game that never made it to the arcades (ahem).

When MTV was released I remember someone comparing it to a god-awful remix of "I like to move it". For ages I wondered if it was that!

I love this track—Yerz's version is better than the original IMO. It sort of gets me dancing every time I play MTV, though it pains me to say that this guy in a tin can suit has better moves than me.

Thanks. I see what you mean (at first I thought you were referring to references made in Dragon's Legend song itself).

So it's compound cover! Maybe it's just hindsight, but it does make sense — even to a non-musician there are at least two distinct moods there. The early bits of Dragon's Lair and Time in general (Yerz's version, faster, catchier) are the bits make me want to throw shapes the most.

Quite like Koto. Kraftwerk, but a bit more crazy.
