Favorite Neil Young Songs
Posted by Blastoise on 2/4 at 10:56 pm
I know Neil Young is a pretty polarizing musician in general, but one thing I appreciate about Neil Young is the journey his music has taken from 1968 to the present. He's run the gamut of music genres and has never shirked from trying something new, which is a noble and rare quality.

He has some truly terrible music. Old Ways (1985), Landing on Water (1986), Trans (1982), Everybody's Rockin' (1983), Life (1987), Are You Passionate (2002) are just some of the duds that come immediately to mind. But he's also had dozens of really great tunes. What are your favorites?

1) Ambulance Blues (On the Beach, 1974)

2) Powderfinger (Rust Never Sleeps, 1979)

3) Natural Beauty (Harvest Moon, 1992)

4) Old Man (Harvest, 1972)

5) I Believe in You (After the Goldrush, 1970)

6) Hey Hey, My My (Rust Never Sleeps, 1979)

7) The Needle and the Damage Done (Harvest, 1972)

8) Like a Hurricane (Unplugged, 1993)

9) Tonights the Night (Tonights the Night, 1973)

10) Pocahontas (Unplugged, 1993)

old man, ohio, the needle and the damage done, only love can break your heart, and a bunch more

however, helpless, as performed with the band at the last waltz, is my number one and nothing else is remotely close

The list is always changing but right now my favorites look something like this:

The Painter
Cowgirl in the Sand
After the Goldrush
Comes a Time
On the Beach
Walk On

Walk Like a Giant is great off the new album as well as Ramada Inn.

Sweet Home Alabama is my favorite song about Neil Young. My favorite song by Neil Young is Down By The River. So simple, but so powerful at the same time.

It's probably a product of what plays on classic rock radio nowadays, but I'm partial to:

Heart of Gold

Southern Man

Keep on Rockin' in the Free World

Looking at his discography, he's done so much as a solo artist - it's hard to believe he had time to be in CSNY and do all the cocaine in the 70s and 80s...
