Wow, this list is incredibly close to what mine might look like. Frankly, Ohio is one of the best songs I have ever heard.

I'd probably have to find room on here for Needle and the Damage Done. I also really like Driveby.

Great list!

Shalom, y'all!

The Needle and the Damage Done is indeed a great song.

A list would not complete without Hey, Hey, My, My, Mr. Soul, The Loner and I've Been Waiting For You.


'Tell Me Why' is often missing from most Neil Young lists, but it is certainly one of my favourites.

I would add 'Like A Hurricane' very near the top.

i would added 'out on the weekend' and the live version of 'cowgirl in the sand' from 4 way street. so beautiful!!!! every time i hear that song i can't describe the feeling it gives me. Neil solo, only guitar and his voice...


Shown on BBC TV tonight 21st November (BBC 4 - satellite) a Neil Young solo concert (on guitar and piano) from 1971 - 30 minutes of bliss. Included was a 'new' song called 'Heart of Gold'.
