While driving to work the other day, I heard “The Letter”, a 1967 hit by The Box Tops. I’ve always liked it, and my brain full of trivia reminded me Alex Chilton was their singer.

Click through the videos below to see some of the craziness floating around inside my head.
The Box Tops – The Letter
The Replacements – Alex Chilton
Big Star – Thirteen
