Every artist wants to pay tribute to the people who inspired them.  No one’s ever done it better than The Replacements’ tribute to Alex Chilton.  This song has a great hook and a chorus that stays with you… It’s stayed with me so long that I named this podcast after it.

    I wonder if the sitar sound at the beginning was a nod to The Box Tops song “Cry Like A Baby” which that song features a sitar sound weaving in and out (of the song).
