BOTB OLD MAN: IT'S A TIE

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

The song is Old Man. The contenders are Neil Young v. Neil Young (Jimmy Fallon).

I've had some very close results of late, and today I have a tie. The results are

Neil Young         13
Jimmy Fallon  13

Neil was ahead by one. I cast my vote for Neil/Jimmy as I intended to do all along, so we have a tie.

But because Neil Young wrote the song and has been a star for so long (twice inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame), let's listen to him sing another of his brilliant compositions.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  3. Great Battle - I wondered how close it would get!

    Never heard "Needle and Damage Done". Thanks for posting it, Janie.

    1. It's poignant. Neil wrote it after he told a member of his band that the guy couldn't go on tour with them because his heroin addiction caused too much trouble. The band member overdosed. Neil says he still feels guilty about it.

    1. I'm not that surprised. I told my son what I was doing. He said, Oh, I love that Neil Young/Jimmy Fallon video. If my son likes something, then it's almost always a winner.

  9. It was pretty close, so a tie is not unexpected, I guess.
    Such a sad story about this song. I never knew that, either. You are a fount of knowledge, dear lady! :)
