Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: T. Rex Rocks And Struts

T. Rex, AKA the late guitarist, singer and songwriter Marc Bolan, was known for setting his surreal, sexually suggestive lyrics to a driving beat, as in this performance of "Jeepster." The singer proclaims his willingness to travel where his heart takes him: "Girl, I'm just a jeepster for your love." T. Rex was evidently something of a strutting peacock; a giant cardboard cutout of himself stands on stage and he's also shown wearing a T-shirt of himself. He clearly had a blast up there.

Funny that you should remark about his having a blast up there. Two people on the Youtube site where the video can be found made the same remark, although not in same words.

I promise I wasn't plagiarizing! It's clear to anyone who watches the video that T. Rex enjoyed performing. I think the audience picked up on it, too.
