The Top TenXW

120th Century Boy

Definitely my favourite T. Rex song, full of energy and heavy guitars, it's the forerunner of heavy metal like AC/DC.

Captures the essence of the genre (I love how these are all T. Rex songs) it is the perfect song

The definition of boy toy never sounded more appealing! - yianang

Obviously their best song, Get it On is overrated! - somekindofaguy

2Get It On

Probably one of their best known songs, topped the charts back in 1971, a feel-good party song which filled the dance floors of the 1970's! Known as 'Get It On (Bang A Gong)' in American.

3Children of the Revolution

A song for kids of the 70's, another great, bouncy Glam-Rock hit.

4Ride a White Swan

"Wear your hair long, babe, you can't go wrong."

A lyric every girl should follow. - PetSounds

Perhaps best known for bringing the term "main man" Marc Bolan into popular culture, was number one for two weeks, before being knocked off the top by "Son of My Father" by Chicory Tip.

The lyrics feature numerous figures such as Bobby (who is a natural born poet who is just outta sight), Golden Nose Slim (who knows where you been), Jungle Faced Jake (make no mistake) and Purple Pie Pete. It also contains these lines Marc Bolan wrote to refer to himself: Me I funk/but I don't care/I ain't no square/with my corkscrew hair,

Funky hit which appeared on a Robinson squash advert, appealing to new generation.
