Neil Gets Psychedelic

Neil Young fans are getting a lot to love (and buy) in 2012.

Earlier this year, he released an album of unusual covers on Americana. His memoir Waging Heavy Peace came out on September 25th, and on October 30th the double album Psychedelic Pill will hit stores.

Neil also joined Twitter yesterday (@neilyoung) and almost immediately had more than 20,000 followers. He's only following one person, filmmaker Judd Apatow, who's freaking out about that big time.

Waging Heavy Peace features Crazy Horse, and it looks like it's going to be a doozy. The 2 CD (or 3LP) set only has four songs per disc (and one bonus track.) One song is a whopping 27 minutes long. Yes, that's a lot of Neil.

Here's the tracklist:
Disc One:
1) Driftin' Back (27:36)
2) Psychedelic Pill (3:26)
3) Ramada Inn (16:49)
4) Born in Ontario (3:49)

Disc Two:
1) Twisted Road (3:28)

2) She's Always Dancing (8:33)

3) For the Love of Man (4:13)
4) Walk Like a Giant (16:27)
Bonus Track:
5) Psychedelic Pill (Alternate Mix)


Neil is giving us a preview of the album with the release of the official video for "Walk Like A Giant."   Yes, it includes some of the classic Neil guitar sound, but it also features some doo-woppy background vocals, and whistling.
The video is a little shorter than the song on the album, which clocks in at 16 minutes plus.

World's Worst iPod: Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"
Gotta love the '80s! Depending on who you're talking to, Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" is either a song that defines the decade, in a good way, or it's a song that gives all other '80s songs a bad name. It made it to #5 on the charts in...

World's Worst iPod: Mac and Katie Kissoon "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep"
There was a lot of love this morning for a song that made it up to #20 in 1971 for the brother sister team of Mac and Katie Kissoon. The pair hailed from Trinidad and this was their only Top 40 hit.
