    Not exactly a catchy tune. Appreciate the message, but the song kinda sucks.

    Typical Neil Young. The message was not to be delivered in a grand-standing manner. It's a simple message and should be delivered plainly. He did that. The fact that the message is old and tired, worn out and recycled doesn't make it any less valid. He knows it. He's been a protestor of such things for years and those of his generation were and remain the same through all these years. He could just retire on his money and blind his eyes to it. He chooses not to and gives us what's on his mind. If that is lame then his critical audience has missed the point altogether. They're expecting something for themselves. That's never been Neil Young's mantra as a songwriter. He writes for himself and has always maintained that claim.

    There are actually three versions of this song, acoustic solo, electric Crazy Horse and the choir orchestra.
    I think all three were streaming on Neil's site.
    Yep typical Neil, writes what he feels and doesn't care if you like it or not,
    your negtiveness has no affect on his self-worth.
    Keep on Rockin Neil!

    For the record, I renewed my NRDC membership today at double last year's contribution before I opened this thread. My reaction: the message is superb; I don't foresee wanting to hear the song again.

    He would.

    You strip all the "fun" out of the music to force the listener to pay attention to the message.

    It ain't much fun, but it is effective.

    Meanwhile, I confess I am listening to Israel Nash instead, when I need a "Neil Young 1970" fix.

    Can you imagine his carbon footprint through the years ? Do as I say , not as I do.

    While he's got tons of highly valuable assets he's always at a (relatively) low ebb for hands on $ and needs to keep pumping out the goods to fund the next project if not pay the light bill. And if he divorces his wife then there's more gears to grind...

    Hypocrite? Nah. It's not cheap or easy being Neil, nor can his career be as nature-friendly as he'd like. Such is the costs of being maybe the last of the best classic rock American environmentalist greats.
