  1. I used to like T Rex my faves were this one Metal Guru & Hot Love :-)

    Have a vundabar week :-)

  2. Great song. As for Brad Pitt, I went to the University of Missouri when he was there, but never met him. Back then he was a no name . . . and so was I.

    1. WOW, this is a cool bit of info, girl! You can say, I almost knew Brad Pitt. lol That's awesome! :)

  3. I don't remember T-Rex. I will have to listen to a few more of their songs to see, if something jingles inside my noodle. But, given the style of this tune it's just a bit more metal than I care to listen to regularly so this may explain why T-Rex doesn't sound familiar to me. Oh well...I love the musical education I get each week. Have a tunetastic week, Ian!

  4. That put some rock in my roll. I have no idea what that really means, in any case carry on! That is some wake up and get going music!

  5. cool tune I've never heard this one. the only T-Rex tune that I remember was bang A Gong.

  6. Rock on!
    Thanks for sharing this tune.

  7. OMG I haven't heard this song in like such a long time! Girlfriend you have totally rocked the house! YOU ROCK! Thanks for sharing.
