The only tribute needed are the lyrics to the Replacements song Alex Chilton.
If he was from Venus would he feed us with a spoon
if he was from Mars than that'd be cool
Standing right on campus would he stamp us in a file?
hanging down in Memphis all the while
And Children by the millions sing for Alex Chilton
when he comes round
they sing "i'm in love"
what's that song
Yeah i'm in love, with that song
So we will rape and pillage in the village of his choice
Invisible can sing in a visible voice
feeling like a hundred bucks, exchanging good lucks face to face
checking his stash in the trash by St. Marks place
And children by the millions sing for Alex Chilton
when he comes round and round
they sing i'm in love
what's the song?
oh, i'm in love with that song
i never travel far
without a little Big Star
Runnin round the house, Mickey Mouse and tarot cards
falling asleep with a flop pop video on
and if he was from Venus would he meet us on the moon?
if he died in Memphis than that'd be cool
and the children by the millions sing for Alex Chilton
and come around 'round
they sing, "i'm in love, what's that song?"
i'm in love, with that song
i'm in love, what' that song
yeah i'm in love, with that song
