About the Song
"He's a Rebel" is a pop song credited to the The Crystals, but actually recorded by The Blossoms which went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in November 1962. Written by Gene Pitney and produced by Phil Spector, it is considered one of the definitive examples of the Spector-produced girl group sound. In 2004, the song was ranked #263 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time[1]. The song is about a girl in love with a young man who spurns society's conventions. Despite his being misunderstood by others, the singer claims that he is sweet and faithful, and she vows to be the same towards him. Studio musician Steve Douglas performs a saxophone solo during the song's bridge. The piano riff at the beginning was contributed by Al DeLory. Unusually for Spector productions, no strings played on the track. Gene Francis Alan Pitney (February 17, 1940 – April 5, 2006) was an American.    Download this sheet!
