There have been many covers of the classic Big Star song. Only Kathryn Williams version, in my opinion comes close to the beauty of the original but even hers pales in comparison to the original. It is a song that I wish I had known of when I was fifteen/sixteen as I would have included it on every compilation tape I ever made in order to woo potential girlfriends and I think that at least one may have been susceptible to the charms of this most wistful of tracks.

One of my all time favourite tracks. Just the other day I was making a compilation of my fave cover versions and had the Kathryn Williams version of this on it.

A simply magnificant song which is magnificant in its simplicity
