47 Ramada Inn

For Neil to write and play guitar on a new tune like this at his age, just shows you the energy and talent the guy brings to the table. If he wrote this in 1978, it would sound about the same and be hailed as a masterpiece, which it is!

48 When You Dance, I Can Really Love
49 Do I Have to Come Right Out and Say It?

Recorded by Buffalo Springfield, and written by Neil, but with Richie Furay singing lead.
Only very rarely done during Neil's solo concerts, but has popped up at most Buffalo Springfield reunion events.

50 Little Wing
51 Lotta Love
52 Till the Morning Comes
53 Philadelphia

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

54 Don't Let It Bring You Down

This is a great song off After the Gold Rush. To me it epitomizes the early Neil Young, who really spoke out against social injustice. My wife is a big fan of Seal, and I accompanied her to his concert, not really expecting much, not really my type of music. Then he did a cover of this song, and it completely made the night for me. Neil is admired by so many artists in so many different genres of music that it's incredible. He and Paul Simon are alike in that respect.

55 A Man Needs a Maid

Awesome brilliant epic

56 Ride My Llama
57 Revolution Blues

"Charles Manson song" is manipulator

58 Song X
59 Albuquerque

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