In 1971, T.Rex recorded a song about sex. Although many listeners did not hear it, since it is quite vague. The song was called Get It On (Bang A Gong) in England, but in the US, they changed the title, since it was too sexual. The background vocals were done by two members of the Turtles. The last line referred to a song by Chuck Berry, Little Queenie. The Power Station and Blondie both recorded it later, but T. Rex established their fame with it. In the US it was their only hit, number 10, and in the UK, it was a number 1 hit. Enjoy
