I never travel far, without a little Big Star

The Replacements - Alex Chilton
from the album Pleased To Meet Me (Sire, 1987)


A sad sad day today. Alex Chilton, you will be missed. Thank you for all the great music. This is my tribute. Heartworn Highways remember the late great mr. Chilton with The Replacements classic tribute.

"..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.

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.." "
