Art of the Cover - The Replacements' "Alex Chilton"




Children by the million sing for Alex Chilton when he comes around; they sing "I'm in love - what's that song?"




The Replacements' mighty love song to music and paean to musical heroes Alex Chilton and the seminal Big Star was released a  single back in 1987.

Children by the million sing for Alex Chilton when he comes around; they sing "I'm in love. What's that song?" ... indeed!

The song also appeared on their glorious album Pleased to Meet Me that same year.

Chilton actually appeared as a guest on that LP, playing guitar on the wonderful "Can't Hardly Wait".
