Song of the Day: Neil Young – “Cinnamon Girl”

Happy birthday wishes go out to Neil Young, who turns 71 years old today. Here’s one of Young’s best rockers, a song of which he once said was written “for a city girl on peeling pavement coming at me through Phil Ochs’ eyes playing finger cymbals. It was hard to explain to my wife.” Off the 1970 album Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, the song has been covered by Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Hole, and Smashing Pumpkins, among many others.
