This song was a minor comeback for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. It is a satire on the Iran-Contra Scandal and, to a lesser degree, the downfall of Presidential candidate Gary Hart. The video got a lot of air time, but the LP was widely panned and remains remembered as one of the group's less noble efforts.
Leia from San FranciscoThe last cut on this album, "Night Song" was written for the twenty-seventh episode of the reboot of the television series "The Twilight Zone."
This program aired as the third episode of the second season in 1986–87 with a slight difference in the show's titling: "Nightsong."
"Nightsong" is the only Twilight Zone episode to ever air without the iconic narration/voice over at either the beginning and the end. "Instead, the track for "Night Song" is played intro/outroing the episode.
Kevin from Reading , PaThis was a pretty poor Neil Young song, but, still, probably the third best song on this disappointing album. The best tracks were "Name of Love" also by Young and "Clear Blue Skies," a typically lightweight environmental tune from Nash, but still better than the rest of the dreck on this album.
