American Top 40 Flashback - Neil Young

I suspect that, for many people my age, their introduction to the world of Neil Young was through this song. But little did we know at the time that "Heart of Gold" barely scratched the surface of his ability.

He's been criticized for not being Bob Dylan, but that's hardly a fair comparison. Bottom line? He's one of the greatest, most versatile artists of the past 50 years.

And if I'm not mistaken, this was his only #1 hit.

"Heart of Gold," Neil Young, the #1 song this week in 1972.
