Music, not words

Sometimes I have a problem with expressing myself. It's good to have a blog to help me work through that, but still even writing becomes difficult. When I was a child I learned to be quiet, real quiet. I learned that records were an escape, with their hypnotic rotation of crackling orchestration; warm voices crying, wailing, hoping. For the last couple of years I've had to learn to be quiet again, because sometimes saying anything destroys all that is around. That's just the way it is, for me and a lot of people.

Today I'm thinking of Neil Young. Actually I've been thinking of his songs all weekend, but today I can't get this particular song out of my head. Heart of Gold. You know, Neil is an acquired taste. But once you get it, it goes deep. So, to all my Rust comrades, here's a song to share.

  1. Had to listen to it twice. What beautiful clear sounds and such a penetrating voice. Always did love that song.

  2. I love when he says he had to lose the band because he had too much equipment (harmonicas). Too funny!

  4. I had no voice as a child as well, which is why music was and is so important to me...

  6. Neil Young is my favorite singer. I have most of his albums and love this song you chose. Listening to Harvest Moon though, puts my mind in a good place - if you know what I mean.

    How young he was there, and how much hair he had then.

  8. I must say I've never been a big fan of Neil - I guess I haven't acquired the taste yet. I can relate to using music for expression.
