You First / Me Last: You And Me

Neil Young: You and Me


Because even though this 1992 Neil Young song sounds suspiciously like a whole bunch of other, older Neil Young songs, I just couldn't resist the terse transitional perfection.

It's still good, of course. And to be fair, the allusion to the obvious is deliberate, with quotes in lyric and melody. It's just that it's so derivative, I can't help but imagine this song would be even better if you'd never heard Old Man.
