Best Neil Young Songs

The Contenders: Page 4XW


One of the most emotional songs I've ever heard. Neil Young showed totally naked feelings.


Great track. Nestled in middle of Tonights the Night but magical when discovered

63You Never Call
64Borrowed Tune
65You and Me
66From Hank to Hendrix
67Bad Fog of Loneliness

A much overlooked, melencholic young lost love song that really is one of the gems in Neils impressive body of work

68Walk On

Underrated and obscure to some, a traditional rock song from the '70s with some seldom-heard guitar, and what sounds like slide. It's the message and lyrics that take you on a bit of a journey into the real world. And no matter how strange life gets, Walk On. Don't look back, keep plowing ahead is a great idea for a song, and nicely done. Not like any other song I've heard from Neil Young, and I have a ton of Neil. It helps set a nice tone as the first song for On the Beach, a moody but fabulous album. It, too, is different from most Neil music.


A quite extraordinary, pounding, driving, hypnotic, autobiographical track that sends tingles down my spine every time I hear it.

70Love and Only Love

The Whizzer has four distortion presets, at one point he finds a 5th and has the delay in the pre-amp side, seems like the earth moves when he hits that on the middle solo... Smoking song live!
