Dear all

Hello


On this day, in 1977, Mr Marc Bolan passed away.

He was the frontman of the glam rock group T. Rex.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

One of his best ever songs:


"SING ME A SONG"
Hey, Hey...


"Sing me a song that the world can sing along
And I'll show you a song that stands for living
Sing me a song that the world can sing along
And I'll show you a song from the heart



White, blinding light, that's so bright
It enfolds you
Scream that's your dream, it's so real
It remoulds you



Sing me a song that the world can sing along
And I'll show you a song that stands for living
Sing me a song that the world can sing along
And I'll show you a song from the heart

Yeah, Yeah


White, blinding light, that's so bright
It enfolds you



Sing me a song that the world can sing along
And I'll show you a song that stands for living
Sing me a song that the world can sing along
And I'll show you a song from the heart"



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To remember a great song with lyrics you could sing to.

But even more, God bless you, Mr Bolan and thank you <3


Sincere wishes
Elizabeth,
xx

I liked T. rex and went to see them when they had just released
Ride A White Swan.

Not quite top of my list but my gf, later wife liked him.

We saw the group perform at the Liverpool Stadium - 1971, I think it was. Not the best of venues as the sound echoed around the place. Tickets were under a £ in those days.
