Neil Young - Harvest
Neil Young rescued me from my high school years, because it's such a lonely album. At first I was a total loner and I never went out on the weekend, and so that song about the weekend ['Out On The Weekend'], I think it says, "pack it up, buy a pick up", and it was perfect, because I wanted to get out of my little suburban town and go to a city - a better place to be alone, than being with a bunch of people! 'Heart Of Gold', obviously, 'Harvest', and I like his use of the lap steel, it's got this lonely feel to it. The lonely high school years - I understood I'm not the only lonely guy out there!
