Weekend Love Trumps Hate Song
The Box Tops, featuring singer and guitarist Alex Chilton, came out of Memphis in 1967 with a monster hit, "The Letter," recorded when Chilton was only 16 years old. In 1969, they released "Soul Deep," which was their last top 20 single. Later, Chilton formed Big Star, a critically acclaimed and influential power pop band. He died in 2010 at the age of 59.
Let's have a little "blue eyed Memphis soul" that tells us that "love is a river running soul deep." Feel free to crank up the volume (after the ad)! Hope you enjoy.
