Neil Young - Heart of Gold Review

The song takes us to the Pacific Northwest, from Redwood, California down to Hollywood, it's a little bit of a drive, but on the scale of the entire U.S., or in the context of the entire world not all that far apart physically, but could sum up some people's perception of a totally different way of life in the two places.  Certainly, a completely different landscape.

The glim and glamor of Hollywood contrasting the rough natural beauty of Redwood is a perfect balance and analogy of the entire U.S. as a whole, whatever direction you're traveling.  This song gives a feeling of freedom and searching.
