My favorite Young song, for instance: Tell Me Why. Do these lyrics really make much sense?

Sailing heart-ships
thru broken harbors
Out on the waves in the night
Still the searcher
must ride the dark horse
Racing alone in his fright.
Tell me why, tell me why

Is it hard to make
arrangements with yourself,
When you're old enough to repay
but young enough to sell? ...


The verse, by itself, seems to kinda-sorta make sense. Maybe. And the refrain, by itself, kinda-sorta seems to make sense, but I really have a hard time connecting the two together into a coherent message.

Perhaps if I sat there and pondered it for a good half hour I could figure it out.

Not all Young songs are like that, but a fair amount of them seem to be.
You forget the critical point about Neil Young...the lyrics make sense, but only if you listen while stoned!

This is the reason I love Bruce Springsteen: the totally impromptu guitar solo Bruce does! Just the fact that he can whip up a guitar solo like that puts him so far above Neil Young in my mind. He's so phenomenal live.

Bruce never had Rick James as a roommate, so it's Neil Young all the way.

I do like them both and they have both accomplished a lot in the music biz, but I think I would say Neil Young is more of a legend in my mind than Bruce.
