So what's your favorite Neil Young deep cut? Certainly, lots to choose from -- from obscure to relatively well known.
Recently, Rolling Stone conducted a Reader Poll and asked the question. From The 10 Best Neil Young Deep Cuts | Rolling Stone by Andy Greene:
Tabulating the votes required a lot of judgement calls. It was a no-brainer to toss out votes for "Old Man" and "Cinnamon Girl," but "Cortez the Killer," "Powderfinger" and "Sugar Mountain" presented a minor conundrum. They aren't hits in the traditional sense, but the latter two appear on Decade while "Powderfinger" is his second most-performed tune (behind only "Cinnamon Girl.") We ultimately felt they were simply too famous to count even though they all got a ton of votes. Feel free to blast away in the comments section if you feel those were bad calls.Well Andy, can't say that we see any bad calls on the Top 10.
"Expecting to Fly" (#10) ranks up there with "Broken Arrow" in terms of complexity with the mixing and orchestral arrangements.
And who could argue with readers #1 pick of the song "Thrasher"? We're particularly fond of the song ourselves and still somewhat in a state of bliss after hearing it live for the 2nd time in our life last year.
But what's up with the mis-spelling "Trasher"???
