"Powderfinger": What the Heck is that Song All About, Anyway?
So get this.
It seems -- incredibly -- that there are still some folks out there that can't figure out what Neil Young's song "Powderfinger" is all about.
Over on MetaChat, there's the usual amusing speculation and over-blown lyrics analysis which we do so disdain here at TW.
Really. C'mon now. Isn't it just totally obvious?
It's not too hard to say the meaning of this song "Powderfinger"?
If you enjoy a little chuckle at the expense those without true rustie enlightenment, drop by MetaChat by jonmc:
Powderfinger by Neil Young. What the hell is the song actually about?
I've heard it a million time and musically it's incredibly powerful, but I can't put my finger on the topic. Neil himself is mum on it. Are the protagonists frontier soldiers/ homesteaders? in Vietnam? Drug smugglers?
I'm baffled. Still a great song, though.
