Sometimes, you just need a little bit of sweetness in your life. Something that makes you smile and maybe tear up a little bit because it’s also a little bit sad. If that’s the case, then say hello to Big Star with their probably quite well-known tune, Thirteen! Now, like me, you probably heard Elliott Smith’s cover of the song before you heard the original, and with good cause: this came out in the 70s. Gosh dangit, the 70s were great for music.

Anyway, this really is just an achingly beautiful song that I just want to listen to over and over again. So excuse me while I go do that!
