with that song

in my estimation, two of the best arranged hit songs ever are the boxtops "the letter" and csny's "ohio". succinct and free of baggage. not the way it should always be, but their awesomeness is in their brevity.

check this interview from wayback with alex chilton.

Too cool. I'll have to figure out Neon Rainbox. Having recently weaned my way out of a heavy Big Star experience this fall, I just got the Box Tops best of (never heard more than Soul Deep and the Letter).

It's funny to see how young he is after having been in two bands of note.
