When we look in the mirror what do we see? Do we see that which we dreamed or that which we settled for?
There is a song by Neil Young (of course) that always pops into my head this time of year. Neil Young remains to this day my favorite singer. There are a lot of performers I’ve enjoyed over the years but he is without a doubt the only one that I consistently listen to over and over again. From Transformer to Harvest and Harvest Moon I play Neil Young stuff. As I look up into the cool crisp Autumn sky I am reminded of Neil’s song “Harvest Moon.”
My friend Ned used to make fun of me for my musical taste saying I was the only teenager that listened to old people music and (at the time we were both in our 20’s) I was now the only young man who still listened to the old man music I listened to as a teenager. I miss Ned sometimes he had a unique way of looking at the world.
My grandfather spent a summer trying to convince me that I should listen to the music of Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller. I love the songs of the big bands. The music is great and I enjoy it, but its not my favorite.
I love listening to classical as well. There are even some songs that I like from the country side. But when there are events that impact me or change the world around me, it is Neil’s music that I associate with that event.
My 3rd blog ever stated that I loved Neil Young. I love all of the words and the music he has produced. From Buffalo Springfield to the days with Crosby Stills Nash (and Young). All of his music speaks to me in different times and moods.
So a huge thank you to Neil Young for more than 40 years of listening pleasure.
