  • What a strange little track. Skip...
  • " I don't get how it is "creepy" to see those two towers which have existed for centuries..." Centuries? They lasted less than 40 years.
  • Shitty pop. How did this get into the Neil Young channel?

The one "creepy" factor is that the said video was shot...Sept 7 2001...Yes just FOUR Days before the drama, even less... If only Ryan and others knew...That s why I m listening to this song only via audio and never ever watching this video again, hurts too much...
  • the album version is brillant but I do prefer the stripped down version that he did for live at abbey road in 2011 :)
  • great song from a great album

  • Timeless - LOVE IT!
