2. "Harvest Moon"

"I'm not trying to go back and recreate where I was when I did Harvest," Neil Young said around the time Harvest Moon came out. "The idea is to sing about the same subject matter with 20 years more experience. I'm stronger than I was then." He was also happily married, and the album is packed full of songs about his devotion to Pegi. The title track wasn't a huge hit, but it's become of his most beloved tunes from any era, and he's performed it at least 275 times. He also shot a sweet video for it where he dances in a bar with Pegi.
