'I've been to Hollywood... I've been to Deadwood'


If you're a Neil Young fan, then chances are you don't like this song. But you know what? You're wrong it's gorgeous. I love Neil Young and I still adore this song. It's sweet, funny and one of the best acoustic guitar riffs ever written.


This is Young's biggest hit and also influences a particular line in the Westernized! song 'Fool's Gold'.


When Hannah Hobley hears a song she loves, she will usually say this line: 'This is a beauuuuuuutiful song' in her delightful Lancashire accent. And when I played it one afternoon, it was no surprise - that this song was declared a beauty.
