Track of the Week: Tell Me Why by Neil Young

I listened to 5 Neil Young albums yesterday, for no good reason other than I was lazy and bored and had no money. I had forgotten what a great album "After the Gold Rush" is. One great song after another, I suggest if you haven't listened to it in a while, dust if off and give it a spin.

One of my favorite songs of the album is opener "Tell Me Why". A jaunty acoustic guitar leads off, followed closly by one of Neil's greatest melodies. The full harmonies that follow are fantastic.

seriously though, give the whole album a listen if you have the chance. One of his best.

yep, that's a great one... "When You Dance I Can Really Love" is my fave on that record, personally.
