Open up your eyes
See how lifetime flies
Open up and let the light back in
This one's from 1992. But hey, it's okay to look back every once in a while, right? Especially when it comes to Neil Young, my favorite artist.
When people ask why I love Young's music so much, I'm unsure of the correct way to respond. If I've learned anything over the years about being a fan of music, it's either that you love Young or you don't, and to try to explain his greatness is not an argument I'd like to take on. I couldn't even tell you what album I would start with (On the Beach), only because the next one you'll listen to (Harvest Moon) wouldn't sound anything like the one before it (Tonight's the Night). If there's a more complex musician out there, I'd like to know.
Here's one from Harvest Moon.
