  • Any Neil Young Fans?!?! How About Top Twelve Songs?

    Count me as one! Certainly greatest contribution to come out of Canada! How many have had as long a career as Neil? Is there anyone who writes as amazing lyrics?

    How's this for early Neil?



    Neil at 20!



    Some more young Neil from 1971!





    Ohio

    Only Love Can Break Your Heart

    Heart of Gold

    Southern Man

    Harvest Moon

    The Needle and the Damage Done

    Unknown Legend

    Cowgirl in the Sand

    Cinnamon Girl

    Are You Ready for the Country

    Tell Me Why

    Down by the River

    and one more

    Old Man

    Lots of other great songs know that were left out!

    When it came out, I thought "After the Goldrush" was the best collection of songs ever put on one album. Immediately learned to play the entire album. I still view it as the best.

      I can't disagree with your list Myles! I'd like to add one song in particular that is usually overlooked as it only appeared on the soundtrack of the movie "Philadelphia" and that, of course, is the song Philadelphia. I think it's one of his most lyrically poignant and melodically gorgeous compositions.

          Those, and so many more: (bear in mind I'm among the 1% Neil obsessed)

          Love and Only Love
          Too Far Gone
          Going Back
          New Mama
          No Hidden Path
          Look Out For My Love
          Sixty To Zero
          Ordinary People
          Be The Rain
          Prairie Wind
          I'm The Ocean
          Revolution Blues
          Ramada Inn
          Driftin' Back

                  Cowgirl in the sand, Down by the River and Cinnamon Girl were his best, imo.
                  He lost me at Cripple Creek Ferry.

                      Overall, it is hard to beat. But Harvest Moon was a throwback album and "Unknown Legend" has to have some of the best lyrics Neil ever wrote. I just love the picture he paints with the highlighted phrases!

                      She used to work in a diner
                      Never saw a woman look finer
                      I used to order just to watch her float across the floor
                      She grew up in a small town
                      Never put her roots down
                      Daddy always kept movin', so she did too

                      Somewhere on a desert highway
                      She rides a Harley Davidson
                      Her long blond hair flyin' in the wind
                      She's been runnin' half her life
                      The chrome and steel she rides
                      Collidin' with the very air she breathes
                      The air she breathes


                      You know it ain't easy
                      You got to hold on
                      She was an unknown legend in her time
                      Now she's dressin' two kids
                      Lookin' for a magic kiss
                      She gets the faraway look in her eyes

                      Somewhere on a desert highway
                      She rides a Harley Davidson
                      Her long blond hair flyin' in the wind
                      She's been runnin' half her life
                      The chrome and steel she rides
                      Collidin' with the very air she breathes
                      The air she breathes

                        You had to ask that!

                        Truthfully I can't decide and love both. Gun to my head: electric. But even the sound of his electric guitar changed over the years from really distorted to only a bit distorted.

                          Can't discount Crazy Horse either on those songs!

                              But I do enjoy the Rust never sleeps LP which is half acoustic and half electric.
