Falling off the Face of the Earth (2005) – Neil Young

Today’s article inaugurates the first song starting with ‘F’ in the library:

I watched so many times the Heart of Gold documentary directed by Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs) about Neil Young’s Prairie Wind concert at the famous Ryman Auditorium also known as Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville. This documentary showcased Neil Young’s comeback performance after brain surgery. By my meagre estimation Neil ‘hit a homer‘ here. The whole concert had me enraptured.

The Prairie Wind concert is a great introduction to Neil Young although it’s more a sombre, melancholic and retrospective repertoire of what he does. It is a reflection of Neil’s childhood and his dedication to family. I immediately knew after I first heard it, this guy is the real deal. I had heard his amazing closing of the Philadelphia movie which is one of the most moving music sequences I’ve ever heard in a movie and also his captivating performance of Helpless with the Band on the Last Waltz.

I really like listening to Neil’s high-pitch vocals in Falling off the Face of the Earth. This song is Neil thanking his father for everything he has done to support his life and his career. He is saying his world will never be the same without his father being here. The texture, the pure ache, adds a timeless feel to the material.

I just want to thank you
For all of the things you’ve done
I’m thinking about you
I just want to send my love
I send my best to you
That’s my message of love
For all the things you did
I can never thank you enough

More music will come from Neil especially Prairie Wind.

    Wonder if I can catch some of his tunes on Spotify? Oops . . . guess not.

    • Hey River. I’m frankly very disappointed with Neil threatening Spotify and removing his own music.
      What did he say? ” They have Young or Rogan. Not both’.
      I didn’t know Neil was a proponent of cancel culture and anti free speech.

      • River Dixon says:

        I agree, very disappointing.

      • Now Joni. I think it’s only a matter of time until Joe is cancelled from Spotify such is the world we live in 😦

        They are nothing more than establishment shills. Rogan has way more influence than corporate media spin doctors, so he must be taken out. I hate to be the one to break it to these people, but if you are on the side of big pharma, corporate media, corporations, and government, then you are being used.

      • I agree, but the Corporate elite run the world. 96% of Google donations go to the Dems and such is their manipulation of search suggestions they are turning 50-50 undecided voters into 90-10 for their supported candidate or simply suspending a candidates page (like Tulsi). If you haven’t seen it yet I recommend the Dr Robert Epstein -Rogan interview recently. That scared the sh&t outta me.
        I hope you are having a good weekend River.

      • I forgot to mention they are even suspending pages like mine on ‘Mass Formation’ appearing in Google results. This was confirmed by Brett Weinstein who said that Mass Formation Narrative / Hypnosis articles about the virus don’t appear in search results. In my stats here, I was getting at least 10 links a day to my article on this subject and suddenly 0. It doesn’t show. The truck convoy protest in Canada and the recent Washington protest against Mandates also isn’t reported in mainstream media. Hmmm lol

        It’s an information war.

  2. Love this cut and the show it’s from.
