Neil Young's Note for Song of the Day: "Over And Over" + VIDEO

Neil Young's Song Of The Day today is "Over And Over" from 1991's album with Crazy Horse Ragged Glory.

Along with the Song Of The Day is the official video plus a personal note by Neil.

via Neil Young Archives

We seem to recall that someone wrote NYA a letter asking about this song, but we can't locate the letter any longer? Maybe a separate search function for NYA Times-Contrarian section is needed? We can pull up individual letters like Dear NYA: Why Isn't Ragged Glory Available on Vinyl?, but that's because wee know the URL. Most folks won't know the URLs of past letters. [UPDATE: See comments below on confusion.]

In a Letters to the Editor, John in London asks about why "Over And Over" is played so infrequently?

Anyways, yes, let's hope we hear "Over And Over" in concert soon!

Incidentally, Neil is almost correct in his recollections, per Sugar Mountain. "Over And Over" has only been played 4 times in concert: La Honda, CA (1990), Santa Cruz, CA (1990), Red Rocks, CO (2012) and Lake Tahoe, NV (2012).

And sure enough, here is Neil Young and Crazy Horse at Red Rocks on 8/5/2012 with a rare "Over and Over". Thanks wsanjose!

It looks like the links moved when the NYA Times-Contrarian multi-page enhancement went live. You can go to the Letters to the Editor tab and scroll down or follow this Direct Link.

Thanks Mabel! Great.

Ok, we see what the confusion was. We were looking under Letters to The Archivist page instead of Letters to the Editor?! doh. no wonder. who knew?!

why do we keep fuckin' up?!

I think it’s also the second time this week that Over And Over was song of the day.

Great song. Last tune played at Tahoe show. Underused for sure. Heres a link to Red Rocks. See the joy on their faces. By all means Mr. Young! Let it ride again

A great song, to be sure, but a silly video what with the hackneyed relationship cliche playing out behind the band.

R.I.P Crazy Horse-Thanks Neil,Billy Ralph and Poncho

@ Syscrusher - funny. perfect. so what song gets repeated? Over And Over . ha. or maybe it's all just deja vu?

@ wsanjose01 - thanks for link. wee need to update above. yes, the joy! that's what it's all about. no one takes away our joy.

@ Brian - Streetcar Named Desire and Stella are classic. Sure you know what yu're dissing here? Homage to Brando we'll take anyday over, well... where do we start...

@ downbutnotout - no, no on the R.I.P . never too late to say goodbye, but always too early...

Sunday was Whiteline,Monday was Fuckin' Up,Tuesday was Amber Jean,Wednesday was Are You Ready For The Country.Thursday was Over & Over.i haven't checked Fridays yet,today.Sometimes the song in the morning is different than the afternoon. Check out my Instagram of daily Neil songs and pictures at neilyoung2018

Like Neil has explained, if he doesn't post a Song of the Day early enough, the system will automatically move to the next song on the album the previous song came from (hence the White Line/Fuckin' Up/Over and Over sequence from Ragged Glory earlier in the week). That's also why you might see one song in the morning and another in the afternoon, after he catches up.

Yes, I did note the STREETCAR... motiff. Still, with the Brando stand-in looking like a 'roided out refugee from Gold's Gym and the 'Stella' appearing to be yanked from the pages of Victoria's Secret, 'hackneyed' remains my verdict.

@ Soldier Steve - that's really cool on Instagram of daily Neil songs! excellent. we'll work to feature that on TW sometime. very handy.

@ Babbo B. - thanks, good to know.

@ Brian - that's cool. all maybe true, still we'll take "hackneyed" Neil videos from the 90's any day over the stuff we're seeing these days. Seriously, what's up with this stuff today???

call it sickness gone

"still we'll take "hackneyed" Neil videos from the 90's any day over the stuff we're seeing these days." Absolutely! I seem to recall also seeing some wonderfully strange videos from his Geffen years. Hey Neil, how about a NYA blu-ray/DVD compilation release of your various stray music videos?
