Thank you, Alex.

Alex Chilton passed away today, at the age of 59, of a heart attack, apparently. When this song was a number 1 international hit, in 1967, I was less than 5 months old. He was 17 years old, and lead singer of the Box Tops. Soon after, he would go on and form Big Star, and release one of the best rock records of all time, "#1 Record." We have your songs to always remember you by, Alex, so you'll never be too far away.
