    Sorry I missed it.
    It was a good time. I don't recall if you gave a reason for declining at the time or just didn't respond.

    Johnny sniped me quite a few times in that draft.

    26. Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, 1969)
    There's a reason that quite a few of my musician friends have covered this. It sounds incredibly fun so I figure it must be incredibly fun to play. It's got country-rock and hard-rock elements to appeal to all sides of Neil's fanbase, and it's a great example of how in the pocket Crazy Horse can be. And the lyrics are about escaping drudgery, who can't identify with that?

    25. The Loner (Neil Young, 1969)
    The first song with lyrics on Neil's first solo album, this sublime hard rocker announced he had arrived. Building on the Mr. Soul template but incorporating strings like Expecting to Fly, this is a grand summation of the talents Neil had displayed up to this point. The lyrics hint at the kind of internal torment that would become his stock in trade. It made the transition to the stage seamlessly when Neil started gigging with Crazy Horse later in the year, and has produced many memorable live moments since.
