Neil Young turns 69 today.  It's pretty amazing to think about all the younger musicians he's influenced and all the hits he's had.  Here's my top 5 of his songs. What are yours?

  • 1

    Heart Of Gold

    James Taylor and Linda Ronstadt sing backup vocals on this one.  But you probably knew that.

    Rockin' In The Free World

    Been covered by Bon Jovi, Simple Minds, and tons of others, but I think Pearl Jam does my favorite cover.

    Old Man

    In the video that I picked for this one, Neil talks about where he got the idea for this song just before he starts to sing.

    Cinnamon Girl

    I actually found out about this song after hearing a band called Type O Negative cover it.  I can thank their cover for turning me onto Neil Young

    Helpless

    In a 1995 interview Neil said this isn't so much about a town but a feeling.
