    1. This made the Hot 100 but only reached #24, maybe because it wasn’t consistent with the rest of their songs. Also, Alex Chilton sang it, but the rest of the band was replaced by session players. Why? Who knows?


  1. This is a different side of them for sure. I loved Soul Deep…Chilton’s voice is different in this one…closer to his Big Star voice.


    1. I’m surprised that it was so obscure. It got up to #9 in Chicago. Granted, it wasn’t the hit “The Letter” was. Guess it was popular in Chicago and not too many other places…

    1. Believe it or not, it’s the same guys. This came between “The Letter” and “Cry Like A Baby” in the US, and didn’t do as well as those two (maybe because it sounded different).
