    Saw a video on TV yesterday. Nearly 100% sure it was a Marc Bolan/TRex sample. The lead singer of the band is about 10yrs old, and there's a young dancer in the street of roughly same age. The chorus sounds like 'I'm the main man'. At end there is a DJ lifting record off decks, so its probably some famous DJ or other. Any idea? Thanks.

    No Marc Bolan was much older than 10 when he made that record ;)
    Seriously though, Telegram Sam was the initial thought I had too.

    Yes, perhaps Telegram Sam was the basis for the tune. The line 'Im the main man' certainly fits into it when you hear it sung. I'm just wondering who has actually released the new version that I seen the video of.

    I have to say I though it was Telegram Sam but here are the lyrics:

    Telegram Sam Telegram Sam
    You're my main man

    Golden Nose Slim Golden Nose Slim
    I know's where you' ve bin
    Purple Pie Pete Purple Pie Pete
    Your lips are like lightning
    Girls melt in the heat

    Telegram Sam
    You're my main man
    Telegram Sam
    You're my main man

    Bobby's alright Bobby's alright
    He's a natural born poet
    He's just outa sight
    Jungle faced Jake
    Jungle faced Jake
    I say make no mistake
    About Jungle faced Jake

    Automatic shoes
    Automatic shoes
    Give me three D vision
    And the California blues
    Me I funk but I don't care
    I ain't no square with my corkscrew hair

    Telegram Sam Telegram Sam

    I'm a howlin' wolf
