Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week

September 30th, 2007 at 05:50pm

During the week where I was still deciding whether or not to stand for parliament, Michael from the 2CC production department put together a rather amusing audio piece containing snippets of my original discussion with Mike Welsh on the issue, and two songs. The artists behind the first song get the musicians of the week award this week, and you’ll find out about the second song next week.

So, the musicians of the week award this week goes to T-Rex, and the feature song is Telegram Sam.

Oooh, oh man, oooh
Telegram Sam, Telegram Sam, you are my main man
Golden Nose Slim, Golden Nose Slim
I knows where you been oh
Purple Pie Pete, Purple Pie Pete
You’re lips are like lightning girls melt in the heat, yeah

Telegram Sam you’re my main man
Telegram Sam you’re my main man
Oh, ooh

Bobby’s alright, Bobby’s alright
He’s a natural born poet, he’s just outta sight
Jungle faced Jake, jungle faced Jake
I say make no mistake about jungle faced Jake, Jake

Telegram Sam you’re my main man
Telegram Sam you’re my main man
Oooh, Samson and Christoph, what a pair!

Bobby’s alright, Bobby’s alright
He’s a natural born poet, he’s just outta sight
Automatic shoes, automatic shoes
Give me 3D-vision and the California Blues
And me I funk but I don’t care
I ain’t no square with my corkscrew hair

Telegram Sam you’re my main man
Telegram Sam you’re my main man
Telegram Sam you’re my main man
Oh, do-do do-do do-do, oh

Telegram Sam, Telegram Sam
I’m a howling wolf an’ I whoo-hoo-hoo
Telegram Sam, I’m a howling wolf an’ I whoo-hoo-hoo …..
Telegram Sam, I’m a howling wolf an’ I whoo-hoo-hoo …..
Telegram Sam, I’m a howling wolf an’ I whoo-hoo-hoo …..

Samuel

    T. Rex featuring the late Marc Bolan (killed in a 1977 car smash) a sad loss, but his songs live on.

    Jeepster.
    I Love To Boogie.
    Telegram Sam (lyrics above).

    Solid Gold Easy Action.
    20th Century Boy.

    Then girlfriend, singer Gloria Jones (they have a son) recorded Tainted Love in 1964, almost two decades before Soft Cell had the hit in the early 80’s.
