Separate Ways
by Neil Young
(2 plays) | (0 fans)

The melancholy tone of Homegrown is set right away with “Separate Ways,” a chronicle of two lovers facing the end of their relationship with more than a little bitterness. “I won’t apologize,” Young sings at the top of the song. “The light shone from in your eyes/It isn’t gone/It will soon come back again.” Ben Keith’s pedal-steel guitar work is a sonic callback to Harvest, but the new love celebrated on that album is now a thing of the past. The public first heard the song on Young’s 1993 tour with Booker T. and the M.G.’s and it last surfaced on his 2014 Crazy Horse tour, right as his marriage to Pegi Young was coming apart, but the original recording is the definitive one. Get a track by track overview of the record here via Rolling Stone: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/neil-young-homegrown-track-by-track-guide-1015158/

"The first change that takes place is in your mind. You have to change your mind before you change the way you live and the way you move. The thing that’s going to change people is something that nobody will ever be able to capture on film. It’s just something that you see and you’ll think, 'Oh I’m on the wrong page,' or 'I’m on I’m on the right page but the wrong note. And I’ve got to get in sync with everyone else to find out what’s happening in this country.'" -Gil Scott-Heron https://bit.ly/3e4C0a0
