I know we are still facing a serious situation but a new year gives us hope for the new days, seasons, opportunities & moments ahead. Still, music is something that will never change for me. It is my refuge, the most comforting part of my life & the one thing I consistently count on. So until a more normal semblance of life returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day. And if this helps anyone else, even better.
On March 18, 1972 Neil Young hit the #1 spot in the country for one week with the exquisite “Heart Of Gold” (Day 24). That song was from his Harvest album which produced a few of his other signature tracks including “Old Man” (Day 322), “Are You Ready For The Country”, the title track and today’s tune. Young has such a heartbreakingly beautiful way of expressing himself and that combined with his stunning poetry has made me a fan for life.
“I sing the song because I love the man
I know that some of you don’t understand
Milk blood to keep from running out“.
