Funky T.Rextasy. If you could take this song and shake it, reams of glitter would fly every which way. Which is exactly what would happen if you took Marc Bolan and shook him. Bolan wrote a lot of nonsense songs, but he put it out there with so much conviction you couldn’t help but take him seriously. This one is pretty typical Bolan, with all the elements in place; irresistible rockabilly groove, loads of attitude and about as much glitter, and zero logic. I’m not suggesting that Marc Bolan was a shallow glamhead, though. He was focused on making music as fun as possible, but he also understood that even the funnest musics need emotional depth. Pleasure is an important matter, and fun can be spiritual. That’s what made T.Rex special, that combination of soulfulness and pop abandon. I guess in this case it’s leaning closer towards the pop abandon side of things.
