I was looking at a list of songs people over fifty should have.  Seems to me music knows no age, but what the heck, let's see what they've got. There's not much to the list actually, and a lot of the choices seem to be about looking back, often in regret.  Is that what you really want on your iPod (or Walkman, or Victrola)?

But what really caught my eye was song #2.  Here's what the listmaker had to say:

Both written and sung by Neil Young, "Harvest Moon" is one of the most beautiful waltzes about the September years.

I'm sorry, if you can't tell 4/4 time from 3/4 time, you shouldn't be writing about music.
