10. 'Ordinary People'

When Neil Young released "Ordinary People" as the leadoff single from his 2007 LP Chrome Dreams II, it probably seemed a little odd to people. After all, he sounded about20 years younger in the 18-minute track and was singing about long-retired Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca. Hardcore fans knew the song dated from the 1988 Bluenotes tour. "I think now is the right time for that song," Young said, "and it lives well with the new songs I have written in the past few months." The horn-heavy epic was a great way to kick off Chrome Dreams II, which was a sequel to an album he shelved in 1977 despite the fact they have no real connection, sonic or otherwise. The world of Neil Young gets confusing sometimes. But blast "Ordinary People" loud and admire the guy for releasing a nearly 20-minute single in 2007 that he threw onto the cutting room floor two decades earlier.
