On This Date, July 25th in 1971: T. Rex reached the #1 position on the UK singles charts with the song “Get It On” (from the album Electric Warrior, which is awesome). The group’s second #1 single spent four weeks at the top. “Get It On” is better known by the title “Bang a Gong” here in the US, because we are such fucking prudes when it comes to sex. Jeez.

“here in the US, because we are such fucking prudes when it comes to sex. Jeez.”
But, by God, we love a good war. Fucking, no. Killing, yes.
Ironically, I’ve been working on compiling my own ‘best of’ this weekend…I had to stop at 23 songs because that’s the most that would fit on one CD! All-time favorite song = “20th Century Boy.”
I think you’ll find T Rex had 4 UK # 1’s and a slew of 2’s.
