The Replacements: Alex Chilton
Today’s pick was inspired by the first comment to yesterday’s post. It's Paul Westerberg’s homage to Alex Chilton. The lyrics don’t always make much sense, but the attitude is just right. Can you think of any other songs by one artist about the work of another?

Big Star: I'm In Love With A Girl
On Wednesday, Loudersoft suggested Big Star as a place to look for folks who want more stuff like the Emitt Rhodes track. We couldn't agree more. So here is a taste of Big Star. If you don't have the Big Star two-fer, which has their first two records on one CD, you need to get it in your collection ASAP. It's an incredibly influential and fun album.
