"Daisy Glaze" as written by Alex Chilton, Andy Hummel and Jody Stephens....
I'm driving alone
Sad about you
Not going home
What's to do?
You better not leave me here
Better not leave me here
Ooh, I want you here
How can you leave me here?

I lie in a stream
And floating fine
Receiving things
In my beautiful mind
Sometimes, oh, sometimes
Sometimes, oh, sometimes
Lover, yes I am
Lover, you know I am, ooh

Now I'm in a bar
That's got to be where they are
Going to dance in the bar
They're going to fight on the floor
Faster than I can see

Now I gonna score
Make for the door
Who is this whore?
Soon be beggin' drags

And I'm thinking "Christ
Nullify my life"
Nullify my life, ooh
You're going to die
Yes, you're gonna die
You're gonna die
You're gonna decease

    General CommentWow, what a great track. Everyone knows Big Star were very influential on alternative rock to come later on, but this one in particular sounds like so much like alt-rock of the '80s and '90s that it's scary.

    As for meaning, this is a somewhat cryptic song, but not too hard to figure out. Alex is having problems with his girl, and is going to go out to a bar, score some drugs, get in a fight, and maybe hook up with a whore to make him feel better.

    A particularly oblique lyrical reference is "Christ, nullify my life." In The Velvet Underground's "Heroin," Lou sang "I have made a very big decision/I'm gonna try to nullify my life." I can take it to mean here in "Daisy Glaze" that Alex is using "nullify my life" as short-hand for getting high on smack.

    It's a beautiful track musically, with some amazing changes in tempo and mood. And there's just no better put-down than "you're gonna die...you're gonna decease!"

    I love nearly all Big Star songs with all my heart, but this just may be my favorite.

    General CommentDitto, it's my favorite. I like the different tempos, the dreamy opening and crunchy ending. It fits any mood. Quality.
