    I'm in love with that song."

    I'm a little surprised that the Rolling Stone article just breezed past the "Box Tops".

    Listen to any oldies or 60's radio station in America, and "The Letter" is a staple of the playlist...and so is "Cry Like A Baby".

    Sad to hear of the death of a very influential musician...but in my case, quite frankly, I remember the Box Tops as much or more than I do Big Star.

    Thanks for the music, Alex.

    Your "lonely days are gone, you're going home"...your maker "just wrote you a letter"...

    And when I think about the good songs you gave me, "I cry like a baby"...
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

        Who? Never heard of him, that band, or those songs.

        Mike and Karen ran toward the old house, through the old iron gate, and onto the porch for protection. Protection...? If only they had known...

          If you read the article in Alias's post, and the gist of my post, I don't know what else we can tell you about the man.

          I don't know much about his later bands and musical efforts, but if you listen to oldies radio for any decent length of time, you'll hear the Box Tops and their songs described above.

            Ah - no, I don't listen to oldies radio. I thought maybe there was a Disney connection that I wasn't aware of.
