T.Rex : New York City
The Top 20 "New York City" is a return to form for the ex-vegetarian Marc Bolan, whose steady diet of hamburgers and booze has had an alarming effect on his teen idol looks. Fans saw the new Bolan on a July 31, 1975 episode of Top of the Pops. Bolan's raunchy guitar is once again offset by the heavenly backing vocals of Flo and Eddie. Bolan would have just one more Top 20 hit, "I Love to Boogie", before he would be killed in a 1977 car crash two weeks shy of his 30th birthday.
