Here is one of my favorite covers of one of my favorite Neil Young songs. I like this song because it’s like a history lesson made into a poem set to music. Would have made a very interesting School House Rock episode.

I love this video because you can tell this group of very talented musicians are having a great time performing together and you can sense the magic being made. I really want that. I felt that high once jamming with a band, but I’ve been chasing the dragon ever since. “Still can’t remember how or when I lost my way.” Love that line.

Let me know about some other songs where you can sense that magic in the performance.
