This week Ian blasts out a version of the Roger Taylor classic Tenement Funster off the album Sheer Heart Attack.  We discuss the name, the lyrics, where does it all fit in?  Who played what? is Brian around? how does this relate to the Beatles and T-Rex?  Roger's incredible voice.  One thing for certain is that this is a classic Queen cut, loved by us.

My new purple shoes
Bin amazin' the people next door
And my rock'n'roll forty-fives
Bin enragin' the folks on the lower floor

I got a way with the girls on my block
Try my best to be a real individual
And when we go down to smokies and rock
They line up like it's some kind of ritual

Oh give me a good guitar
And you can say that my hair's a disgrace
Or just find me an open car
I'll make the speed of light outa this place

I like the good things in life
But most of the best things ain't free
It's the same situation just cuts like a knife
When you're young and you're poor and you're crazy
Young and you're crazy...

Oh give me a good guitar
And you can say that my hair's a disgrace
Or just find me an open car
I'll make the speed of light outa this place.
