Thirteen

Alex Chilton died earlier this year.  I’ve never been huge into Chilton or his band Big Star, but one of his songs has haunted me since I first listened to it.  “Thirteen”.  I was sitting around playing along with a video of it the other day when I saw this one:

There was a version with better audio clarity but it didn’t have the same immediacy that this one did.  Elliott Smith is another artist I haven’t listened to very much, but this version just supplanted the original in my head.  It sounds kind of like Nick Drake to me.
