Last year Neil Young released the stellar Daniel Lanois-produced "Le Noise" and toured it around America. This year he seems to be more focused on looking back. He's on tour right now with Buffalo Springfield, and on the verge of releasing a live album recorded on his country tours of the mid-Eighties – hence our decision to poll our readers and see what their favorite Neil Young songs are.

Unsurprisingly, you're quite keen on his Seventies catalog. We can't blame you: Between 1969's Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and 1978's Rust Never Sleeps Young reached a level of genius that few songwriters have ever topped. Click through to watch videos of your top 10 tracks.
