Sing for Alex Chilton ...

If he was from Venus, would he feed us with a spoon?
If he was from Mars, wouldn't that be cool?
Standing right on campus, would he stamp us in a file?
Hangin' down in Memphis all the while.

Children by the million sing for Alex Chilton when he comes 'round
They sing "I'm in love. What's that song?
I'm in love with that song."

Cerebral rape and pillage in a village of his choice.
Invisible man who can sing in a visible voice.
Feeling like a hundred bucks, exchanging good lucks face to face.
Checkin' his stash by the trash at St. Mark's place.

I never travel far, without a little Big Star

Runnin' 'round the house, Mickey Mouse and the Tarot cards.
Falling asleep with a flop pop video on.
If he was from Venus, would he meet us on the moon?
If he died in Memphis, then that'd be cool, babe.

Μόλις πριν από ένα μήνα είχα βρεί το εικονιζόμενο βινύλιο με το ομώνυμο τραγούδι των Replacements ...

Τελικά δεν πέθανε στο Memphis...

Alex Chilton Rest in Peace ...

όπως επίσης και στον Charlie Gillett, του οποίου το Ο ήχος της πόλης ήταν το πρώτο μουσικό βιβλίο που διάβασα ...
