The Most Giving Man in Rock
How cool, how sexual, how winsome, how loving can one imaginary best friend be? Marc Bolan plays the bliss with the blues.
LIFE'S A GAS, ONE INCH ROCK
When he turns it on he makes you want to strut and laugh, sharp as the dark park: TENEMENT LADY, SOLID GOLD EASY ACTION
He opens up and aims the rays of the sun at you til you close your eyes and feel the warm glow of life on your forehead, o god, life is good: LIFE IS STRANGE, HIGHWAY KNEES
He can break your heart as he sits at your feet, having his way with his guitar: ELECTRIC SLIM & THE FACTORY HEN, ELEMENTAL CHILD
He fills in the space between all of us with his intimate, infinite love: BROKEN HEARTED BLUES, JEEPSTER
Cuz he's got the universe reclining in his hair.
