Rebel, Rebel.

You've torn your dress, your face is a mess
You can't get enough, but enough ain't the test
You've got transmission and a live wire
Got your cue lines and a handful of ludes
You wanna be there when they count up the dues
 Seu Jorge sings 'Rebel Rebel' by David Bowie in the movie "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou."

Listen to the song here.

"Director Wes Anderson doesn't provide much backstory for why this scruffy black Brazilian appears with his guitar. But it doesn't matter. Once you hear Seu Jorge perform Rebel Rebel in Portuguese, you'll never listen to this David Bowie song the same way again.

Seu Jorge has been a star in Brazil for several years."
