In riding the wave with the FAV FIVE Series, I've completely enjoyed the readership participation of creating a group playlist with The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and The Rolling Stones. 

This week, your assignment should you choose to accept it- 
LIST Your FAV FIVE: Neil Young Songs

You will make your list in the Comments section at the end of the blog post below. 

So to begin, let's start at the end. The big idea is for all of us to create a Monday Monday Music™ Readers: Neil Young Songs Playlist.

I'll start the playlist with my favorite five Neil Young songs and then, as readers leave me their five in the Comments section below, we will grow the playlist together. Note- I'm sure we will have duplicates which is great, but I will only include a song once in the YouTube playlist as I receive the lists.

Songs must be original Neil Young compositions recorded by Neil Young, or his compositions in Buffalo Springfield, CSNY, Crazy Horse, etc. So, no covers from other artists doing Neil's songs, which is another whole blog in itself that I will do someday. 

So here's my five (at this moment). Why only five? Tell me why?
  1. Cinnamon Girl
  2. Tell Me Why
  3. Bad Fog of Loneliness 
  4. Only Love Can Break Your Heart
  5. See The Sky About To Rain
Now if you want a little help in making your list, here's a great resource.
Also, here's the same little tutorial I made for The Beatles list.
  1. Scroll down to the bottom of the blog to the Comment section. Number and name your songs 1-5.
  2. Comment as: If you're logged into your computer, tablet or smartphone with a Gmail (Google) account, pick the first selection. I would recommend using the Chrome browser.
    Or, pick Name/URL, write your name and leave URL blank,
    Or, if you pick Anonymous, just write your first and last name in the Comments box itself.
  3. Hit the Publish button, and I'll list your five songs in the post here (if you provided your first and last name), and then I will mix your list in the Youtube playlist.
  4. One last thing, if someone else has picked one of your favorite 5 already, still include it in your list. It may reveal a clear winner that in the end needs to sit at the top of the playlist.
Thanks in advance for playing along and come back later in the week to listen to OUR growing playlist!
