500 Favorites #001: T. Rex, “Dandy in the Underworld”
(from Dandy in the Underworld, 1977)
I want to call attention to two notable events that happened on September 20, 1977, the day I was born. One of these events was Happy Days airing the episode where Fonzie jumped over a shark on waterskis, which eventually gave a name to the phenomenon of being able to pinpoint a definitive moment where a pop-culture property can be said to have irreparably gone completely to shit. The other event was Marc Bolan’s funeral.
Great song, and I really miss this series.
