“Mambo Sun” is one of my all time favorite love songs. T.Rex’s lyrics are always delightful and strange, and this song is a perfect example of this.
I remember using the line “My life’s a shadowless horse if I can’t get across to you” as a Facebook status back when I used to do that all the time (*cringe*). But, hey, it’s a good line! There are so many great lines in this song.
An old crush shared “Mambo Sun” with me on a mix CD, and I proceeded to re-purpose it on a few of my own “I like you but am too scared to say it outright” mixes back in my college years.
The last guy I shared it with is my husband now, so I guess the magic worked.
