"Rock On" as written by and Gary/johnson Baker....
Hey kids rock and roll,
Rock on, oh my soul
Hey kids boogey too, did ya

Hey shout, summertime blues,
Jump up and down in my blue suede shoes
Hey kids rock and roll, rock on

And where do we go from here?
Which is the way that's clear

Still looking for that blue jean, baby queen
Prettiest girl I've ever seen
See her shake on the movie screen, Jimmy Dean
James Dean, rock on

    General CommentI think that this song is a eulogy to Eddie Cochrane-"Summertime Blues," Elvis- " Blue Suede Shoes," Bob Seger- " Old Time Rock & Roll," a song called "Shout" and to the actor James Dean. He was a "Rebel Without a Cause."

    General CommentI agree with stringofpearls, with the addition that he is reflecting back, and at the end is looking to the future of music. "where do we go from here"

    General CommentThis song is great. The days of psych/trip rock was awesome. Its too bad that essex has to be the pinnacle of "one hit wonder"/// Also. i HIGHLY recommend the smashing pumpkins cover of this (available on Judas 0). It tears it up.. really fills up the song nicely.

    General CommentDef Leppard also now do a cover of this song on their new album "Yeah" (which is a bunch of pretty cool covers). They actually do a pretty damn good job at this one too.

    General CommentDecades later, and despite the fact David Essex was a one hit wonder, this song is still dead freaking sexy. You wanna get a MILF horny? This is the song to do so.
