Oh, hello Mr. Soul, I dropped by to pick up a reason For the thought that I caught that my head is the event of the season Why in crowds just a trace of my face could seem so pleasin' I'll cop out to the change, but a stranger is putting the tease on. I was down on a frown when the messenger brought me a letter I was raised by the praise of a fan who said I upset her Any girl in the world could have easily known me better She said, You're strange, but don't change, and I let her. In a while will the smile on my face turn to plaster? Stick around while the clown who is sick does the trick of disaster For the race of my head and my face is moving much faster Is it strange I should change? I don't know, why don't you ask her? Is it strange I should change? I don't know, why don't you ask her? Is it strange I should change? I don't know, why don't you ask her? Is it strange I should change? I don't know, why don't you ask her?

Robert from DetroitA source no less than Sirius' Earl Bailey, said that the song was about Marvin Gaye. Anyone see the connection?
Ricky from Ohsweken, -GREAT guitar work here. Anyone know what kind of guitar it is?
Ken from Philadelphia, PaRegarding Neil Young's absence from the Buffalo Springfield at Monterey Pop, it might be interesting for some to know that, by all accounts (including from members of the band), David Crosby's work was positively awful onstage and it was a large part (if not the total reason) why the Springfield was edited out of the Pennebaker documentary.
Adam from West Palm Beach, FlOf course, that aforementioned rivalry could have the intensity and/or nastiness usually in reserve for, say, the Hatfields vs. the McCoys...
Farrah from Elon, NcAwesome song by Buffalo Springfield.
Bob from Southfield, MiAnother track on the same album entitled "Broken Arrow" opens with a live version of "Mr. Soul". However, instead of Neal Young, Dewey Martin, the group's drummer is mysteriously singing the lead vocal.
Valentin from Beijing, Chinathe riff is quite similar to Stones' "Satisfaction"
