Misfits - chords, tab and comments
When you have been suffering through four tracks of Neil Young's 1985-album "Old Ways", you face this ridiculous song, and you won't know wheather keeping on listening or crack that disk into pieces. It is the most odd Neil Young song ever written.
An upright bass goes tango. Neil's haunted voice launches a scene from a space station. Following violins, choirs from Hell and vice versa. But good ol' Neil is talking about misfits, thus he makes the sound misfitting, and it works. This song was never meant for guitars - but I've heard it from a concert in Australia, grumble. It's never been covered except maybe by tribute bands in backyard clubs.
Neil Young is unpredictable. «He's a walking contradiction; partly truth and partly fiction» [Kris Kristofferson] and still surprising more than thirty years after this ... song?
