  • Buick, Buick, Buick Mackane
    Will you
    Buick Mackane will you be my

    Rainy Lady, Queen of the Rock
    Will you help me roll
    Help me roll, to my soul

    Slider slider
    You're just a sexual glider
    You're just a sexual glider
    Be my plane in the rain Writer/s: MARC BOLAN

  • Jd from World StageI'm sure the album cover was in a Duran Duran album sleeve, aware Taylor is a fan.
  • Jaylan Beaudouine from Battery CityI read somewhere that this is about his maid/cleaner lady. Her name, presumably surname, was MacKane, and she drove an actual Buick car. I suppose Marc liked her in one way or another and wrote this for/about her.
  • Andy from Halesowen, West Midlands, United KingdomMarc liked to name girls in his songs after cars. In the classic Jeepster we have "I'll call you jaguar if I may be so bold" for example.
  • Megan from Derby, United KingdomI love this song, Guns and Roses did a great cover, but this is the best! The guitar at the end is fantastic, and Marc's vocals just make the song very sexual, in my opinion. Very dirty, but an amazing song from T-Rex, just like all the other great songs they did.
  • Davie from Paisley, ScotlandA great song, covered of course by Guns n' roses on their Spaghetti Incident album.
  • Ziggy from Hellthis song is awesome, i cant believe no one's commented on it. the guitar riff is so infectious!
