Neil Young Songs That Take My Breath Away

The Number FiveFive Neil Young songs that still take this dude's breath away

  1. Down By The River
  2. Cowgirl In The Sand
  3. Heart Of Gold
  4. Old Man
  5. Cinnamon Girl

On preview, this is a stupid Friday Five. How do I pare this list down to five? Where's "Helpless" or "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" or "Southern Man" or "Harvest Moon"?

Just change it up to the Friday 10 or 15 bor whatever. I still get suprised by how great NY songs all the time.Another reason why CFNY sucks as is . There's no chance a song off that list would be played eventhough NY generally does not fit any format.

Ohio? Like a Hurricane? Long May You Run? Almost impossible to only choose 5 great Neil Young tunes. James - I can almost hear the Edge playing City and Colour's version of Cowgirl in the Sand.

There's a town, in North Ontario'.

True dat.

And yes J9, Dallas bellowing out Cowgirl in the Sand is the closest we get on 'NY.
