Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson recently revealed that a classic song by Neil Young and Buffalo Springfield’s heartbreaking lyrics still ring true today. Michael Jackson’s daughter recently made an ’embarrassing’ Slash claim.
Paris Jackson tweeted, “Incredible how buffalo springfields lyrics are still very much relevant today.”
The song she is discussing is “For What It’s Worth.” Lyrics in the song include, “There’s something happening here. But what it is ain’t exactly clear. There’s a man with a gun over there. Telling me I got to beware. I think it’s time we stop. Children, what’s that sound. Everybody look – what’s going down?”
Siguesigue recently posted on Reddit, “Songs like Bufallo Springfield’s Broken Arrow & Expecting To Fly? I was recently blown away by Neil’s Buffalo Springfield songs Broken Arrow and Expecting To Fly, and was wondering if there was other Neil stuff that goes into this otherwordly, almost chamber pop, direction.
I own the albums On The Beach up until Trans and know some of the others a little. I didn’t dive too deep into the earlier stuff, cause I’m usually less into the acoustic folky side of things. Anyway, recommendations appreciated. Cheers!”
Uncle_Jafar responded, “That’s all Neil and Jack Nitzsche. Jack produced with Phil Spector and his wall of sound. In a nutshell, he produced the first Neil LP and gave him the confidence to quit the Springfield and go solo. Also check his work with the Stones and some of his solo tracks on the Three Piece Suite album. Also The Walker Brothers ‘Love Her’. His mark is too large to start to list but his work with Neil and as a member of some of his bands is incredible.
Those two tracks are the blueprints for the string work realized on Harvest. If you’re working backwards from OTB you got some real nice albums in store.
While we’re at it if you like those and haven’t listened to Grandaddy or Mercury Rev, some of the best modern versions of that sound.” Roger Waters just made an ’embarrassing’ Neil Young remark.
