Well, now, that old Kim Carnes song had a great repeating "slap" track. That was its only redeeming value though.

But no, that is not the tune in question. If Bud gets on his board anymore, he might get it. He's a Facebook junkie now.

You're dirty sweet, oh yeah!

"Get It On" or "Bang the Gong", no it's "Get It On", but couldn't tell you the name of the band.

Excellent one, Bud! :drive:

Are you learning it on the axe? :guitar:

:banana:

I know of 2 versions. One by Power station and the older version by T.Rex.
I prefer the Power Station version.
Crank up the base!
Mmmmmmm, base...

T.Rex = A 60s/early 70s English Glam Rock Band

Power Station = Robert Palmer "Super group" (you know the videos)

Yes, the same song was released under different names.

Oh! That's right, Bob! I forgot about that one. Better version, for sure.

OK. I'll give ya' team credit for that one. I didn't remember the Power Station version either. Nice work!

I like the original version better.

I know this is showing my age, but I'm just not a bass head like Bob and I've been diggin' the old 60's & 70's blues & rock since I started playing the guitar.

Don't get me wrong, I like Robert Palmer's stuff quite a lot. But, I've gotta' give it up for the T Rex version is better.

The Power Station version is a tad too glam-rocked, but I really like Robert Palmer's voice.

The T. Rex version has a much cleaner guitar line but not as much energy.

Both versions have a lot to be liked and a little to not.

Good one, Bud.

I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' about half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
"Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
He just grinned and shook my hand, "no" was all he said

Never heard it. That's one of those tunes (after catching it on YouTube) I would switch off for being way too "hick" for my liking. Kind of like how commercialized those Nickelback songs make you feel perhaps, Bud? Sorry, man. Won't spoil it for Jeff or Bob, though.

Really? Not a fan of folk rock?
