The Best Way To Repair US - Canada Relations?


What is the best way to improve bilateral relations across the 49th parallel?

Why, more Neil more, if not all, of the time of course....

There are a whole bunch of videos out there of Mr. Young doing his thing with all comers on this tune but this is by far my favourite for all kinds of reasons, including the fact that the multilayered camera coverage was pieced together from DIY footage taken from all over the YouTubez...Truth be told, sometimes I just slap this one on when I'm feeling a little blue and need a bit of a humbucker fueled pick-me up.
Now...While Neil just might be able help to grease those stalled NAFTA negotiations, based on past performance it is not likely that he will allow Mr. Trump use his song to trumpet victory because...This.

it certainly wouldn't be the first time turnip used something with out paying for some one's work.

when Young wrote that song the world was a little freer. alas, not all the songs in the world are going to change the politics of the orange oaf.

There are so many fabulous things about this -- all I can say is thank you for sharing it!

Try this one from Neil, it's as true today as it was then.

Point taken.

All the songs most definitely will not change the deeds and actions of people like Mr. Trump. They can help change the actions of all of the rest of the people who can stop the Trumps of the world, however.



That's table tennis to you and me.

Umpired by Henry Kissinger on a unicycle in a bear suit, of course.







And I also dig the original melodic version of that particular Neiltune.

Harvest Moon is his best song. It's peace. More Neil Young and less Trump and Ford.
