Songs We Like – T. Rex “The Slider”

20 Oct

This one goes back to 1971. We’ve always been suckers for songs with ambiguous (or out-and-out nonsensical) lyrics, and The Slider by Marc Bolan does not disappoint:

I could never understand
The wind at all
Was like a ball of love
I could never never see
The cosmic sea
Was like a bumblebee
And when I’m sad
I slide

Marc Bolan
