[Chorus]
Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home

  • A candidate for one of the best recordings of all time, can't see anyone exclude this for first 100.
  • Great tune. Have to agree with @marjo47 somewhat. And also the airplane taking off sound on the record was actually recorded off of a special effects album next to the studio and put in. The naivete of it all. Lead singer Alex Chilton was all of sixteen. A year or so later 3 (Half the band) had to go back to school because of the Vietnam military deferrment requirements that effectively did in the original band. Not to mention these teens were constantly being screwed over by managers,lawyers & promoters. Such was life in the 1960's.
  • I like the voice )
