After a tiring week of work we always wait for that moment of the weekend when, we can sit back on our couch and just relax. And we all know that music is beneficial for our state of mind, so why not choose the perfect song. But sometimes we are so tired that even choosing a song seems like an impossible task. But don’t worry here on GeekReply we care about your well being and chose a song for you every Saturday. For this weekend I picked for you a small dose of compasion with the song Heart of Gold from Neil Young.
Neil Young is a Canadian musician, songwriter and imposing humanitarian, known as “one of rock and roll’s greatest songwriters and performers”. He is mostly known for his characteristic voice that can go from high tenor voice, his deeply personal style of writing lyrics and unique guitar work. Throughout his music career Neil Young has experimented various music styles going from rock to folk and even country, from time to time combining them and creating his own style in the music industry. Young also had some implications in the movie industry as a producer, director and soundtrack writer.
The song Heart of Gold has a deeper meaning that depends on each person’s perspectives. Some find its meaning to be the search of true love, some think it’s Young’s wish of becoming a better person. Personally, I think he is referring to compassion and humanity, which became harder to find these days and with all these tragic events happening in the world right now, I think we should start searching for “hearts of gold” in each and one of us.
