Marc Bolan and T. Rex struck U.K. commercial gold for their fourth and final number 1 hit. This beautiful, symphonic piece that begins with a beautiful, wailing salute to the rock gods stayed number one for four weeks in May and June of 1972 but did not chart in the U.S. It was displaced by one of my all-time favorite folk songs, “Vincent” by Don McClean. The song was featured on T. Rex’s 1972 album The Slider.
If you liked this jam, you may like the following similar jams I’ve been jamming to:
“Have Love, Will Travel” – The Sonics
“Blank Generation” – Richard Hell and the Voidoids
“Personality Crisis” – The New York Dolls
“Another Girl, Another Planet” – The Only Ones
And this tune was featured on my June 7, 2011 workout playlist.
Trying to keep the energy up this week with some 90’s alternative and dance hits, tossed lightly with 2000’s alternative jams. Not everything is genre specific, however. According to my iPod, here is what carried through some intense cardio and legs yesterday:
As you can gather from the music, very interesting workout yesterday. Will make some adjustments and regroup for tonight’s workout. As always, you can follow my bodybuilding progress at my BodyBuilding.com profile. Over 45 lbs. lost and kept off since January 2010!
