Song of the Day – “Thank You Friends” – Big Star

Thank you, friends
Wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you
I’m so grateful for all the things you helped me do

Power pop pyrotechnics occurred when Alex Chilton went back to Memphis and joined up with buddy Chris Bell’s band Icewater to form Big Star. This song was written by Chilton, who was barely out of his teens.

All the ladies and gentlemen
Who made this all so probable
