Haiti Partners Children's Choir performs Neil Young's "When God Made Me". (Thanks Liza!)
Shortly after the song's debut back in 2005, the significance and implications provoked one of the all time firestorms on Thrasher's Wheat comments. A comment by Matt M. sums things up as well as any of the many provocative interpretations:
"Keep in consideration that Neil Young is a musician and an entertainer.
He may very well have kept his real thoughts on God to himself, and set these lyrics to music and released them downstream to either collect as silt and drop to the bottom of the riverbed, or spawn and multiply farther along.
Either way, Neil has once again stirred the muddy waters of controversy.
And no matter what side you take, or what your reaction is, the fact remains that Neil knows how to spark a debate."

Patterson Hood: "My dream has always been to work like Neil Young as far as starting to record with no regard for a specific project and amassing a stockpile of recordings to draw from,' Hood says. 'Like [Young's] 'Rust Never Sleeps,' half of that dated back to five or six years earlier. Then all of a sudden, he had the album those songs fit on, and it's one of his best records."
