Musical Interlude ~ Neil Young

Putting myself to bed with this blast from the past that threw itself under the wheels in my brain today-- I'm a fool for a downhome harmonica. Always reminds me of music being pulled into our plane from somewhere else, and Young's vocals do nothing to change that perception.

The only published version of this is on the 2000 album Silver and Gold, but the song dates back to 1987. A rather psychedelic video to go with it, as a somewhat dubious bonus, and lyrics are here...:

Razor Love



Who was it made your eyes flicker like that
Tell me babe, where'd ya get the knack?

  2. One of these days I'll learn to love his heavy metal, but his acoustics and harmonica, like no one else's harmonica, and that voice, take me places in similar ways.

  3. @brian--yes it did, and my dreams were a lot better than the video anyway. ;-)

    @Ruth Agree, some of his Pearl Jam and forward work is hard for me to get into--I don't think his gift has held him up as well over the years as some other icons--but like you, the acoustic guitar and the fae voice never fail for me.

    Glad you liked, MZ.

  4. I've liked his music since high school. He's a true original.
