  • 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.
