I saw Neil Young a week ago and am still thinking about that show. So glad I got to see him perform, he really is a living legend! Just wondering what everyone's favorite Neil song is :)

Lately, I can't stop listening to this one. It's really been making me think.: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ku2Sbynh8A4&feature=related
Simple and amazing.

But this may be my all-time favorite: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12T95RHGLH8

    The Annie Lennox cover used in American Beauty is also phenomenal.

    On The Beach or Ambulance Blues. I love me some sad Neil
  • After the Gold Rush and Rockin' in the Free World. He has written a lot of good ones, but those really stand out for me. I think people sometimes miss the meaning of Free World since it's a rockin' tune, but I think about them all the time.

    "For the Turnstiles" on that album is another notable one.
