    Talking Waaaay off-topic: Looking for a song!

    Ok tonight I introduced my wife to the music of Neil Young. She likes "After The Gold Rush" and "Old Man."

    She really liked "Ohio" until I told her what it was about... The Kent State Incident. She feels the version I have is too "zippy" and too "rocking" for such a sad event.


    ...Now awhile ago I had an acoustic version of the same song. It was much slower and much more emotional. It was on the old Sony Music Thang that wore out and died.

    Damned if I know where i got it from though.

    Anyone out there know what album or collection this might have been from?

    I will search my collection. MP3 collecting is legal still here since we pay a tax on every disk sold that can be used to record music. I have half a terabyte of music.

    Bleh. My download speed right now is slower than dialup. Glad you found it. I'll have to listen to it later when the load is off the satellite. I do have a live performance by him but it is the same tempo as the studio versions.

    I found a slow acoustic version of "Ohio" and another equally well done version of "After The Gold Rush."

    See... I'm in my mid-30s... My parents listened to this stuff on records then later CDs when the record player broke down for the last time.

    I dislike "modern" music.... most of the stuff on my Music Pod dates before 1984... I have a few "new" songs but I prefer the classics.

    Lakeside: It's hard to erase a CD and you don't have to worry about the battery in your Music Pod shorting out suddenly if you have the physical media.

    Not any more. That's why the music industry is bribing our politicians to ram through some super restrictive legislation much the same as the DMCA in the US. Also, the billions in disc tax that have been collected were supposed to be distributed to the artists. Last I heard nobody has ever been paid.
