Josh from Champaign, IlJeepster was a model of automobile released by Willys-Overland from 1948-1950. The model was intended to be a middle ground between the Jeep model intended for rough off-road utilitarian use and their CJ series (Civilian Jeep). Though I think that Jeepster just fits the song in the poetic sense and I'm sure the focus is on the off-road sense that it will go through rough terrain and objects to reach its destination, that Jaguar of a girl, of course another automobile, known for its sleek and sexy lines and refinement.
Diane from Hamilton, OnWhat does "Jeepster for your love" mean?
Paul from Rothesay, Nb, CanadaThe percussion heard in the middle part of the song is actually Marc stamping on the floor, or as he once called it "Me doing a little bit of tap dancing"
Rick from Houston, TxMy first exposure to any T-Rex song, other than "Bang A Gong". This tune was on the soundtrack, and also used in the movie "Death Proof", directed by Quentin Tarantino. If you have not been exposed to any of the soundtracks from Quentin's movies, you are doing yourself a disservice. He throws together some really good ones.
Davie from Paisley, ScotlandThe song was also on the B side of the "something you got" single by Protex. A Bolafide classic, nice one Paul.
Paul from Rothesay, Nb, CanadaWalter,
Bolan often used car/vehicle metaphors in his music, and this is no exception. A "Jeepster" is an actual jeep. When you think of all the things a jeep connotates; travelling over rough terraine, power, masculinity etc...you get what Bolan means by the line "Girl, I'm just a Jeepster for your love". A Bolafide classic!
Walter from Antwerp, BelgiumHow many big hitsingles have the line "I'm gonna suck ya" in them? Not too many, I guess. Though I was still a boy at the time, I was very fond of this record, must've been that catchy rhythm. Only still don't know what a "jeepster" is, can somebody please explain?
Fall Out Boy's "The Kids Aren't Alright" song title is not a reference to The Offspring's 1998 single of the same name. It actually alludes to The Who's 1979 rockumentary film called The Kids Are Alright.
