Review about Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young songs
    ------ About the song Ohio performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Battle lines draw, the word "done" sounds like a satirical way of saying that political philosophy then was to stop the protests and prove a point. My POV is the the National Guard was tired from just dealing with the Akron Truckers Strike and acted Ir-respondsibly and almost in panic mode. Sdaly, there were many people at that time who felt the Killings were justified to stop future protests

Too Old to be a Hippie | Reviewer: Geegadman
    ------ About the song Woodstock performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

I was 29 with 4 kids and making easy money in a rapidly growing computer company, but I sympathized with the younger people who saw another way. I never read these lyrics before and I am impressed that the wisdom they reveal is sounder than I expected.

Now a lot of people think they are too old to be a Hippie. It's true that that era is over, but it's not too late to get back to the garden in a timely fashion.

    ------ About the song Woodstock performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Yes, we were golden, we were stardust, as most young people naturally are. The times defined us, not because we were different than any other generation, but because we were such a large group of young people. Only the young can experience war, sex, drugs, love, hate and radical politics, while still feeling innocent.

A FAVE song of all time! | Reviewer: Rocko
    ------ About the song Wooden Ships performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Both versions are great and I am a huge Crosby fan, but I love the AIRPLANEs version with passionate story telling vocals and Jormas' wicked guitar! Wooden Ships and Grace Slick singing TRIAD(another Crosby song) blow me away every time!

    ------ About the song Teach Your Children performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

An enormous difference in having information or knowledge about something and the wisdom to discern wheat from shaff. This song's theme (learning is a continuous, circular event) has universal application. The connector is that the "teacher is also the student".

Wisdom is Circular | Reviewer: John
    ------ About the song Teach Your Children performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

A wonderful piece of music. But, Nash's lyrics hit the right "note" - that knowledge & the wisdom that comes with it, is not a linear thing but comes full cycle.

Parents teach the younger generation what they know given their unique time and space. But, then the gift. The younger generation teaches them as well.

meanings and nautical terms | Reviewer: dannyboy
    ------ About the song Southern Cross performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

I concur that it's clearly "following sea" -- a very common sailing term. It's also "downhill run" which in fact means "downwind" but again it's common (but more modern) term. This is what it's called when you're sailing the trade winds behind you -- "the Trades." You're on the "downhill run" as opposed to beating upwind.

Really cool observation by another post-er about the noisy bar versus the quiet midnight watch, where it becomes clear.

My personal favorite line is "I've got my ship, and all her flags are a-flyin'; she's all that I have left, and Music is her name." I believe that Stephen's boat was actually called Music, but of course that is a metaphor. His music was all he had left, and it was in that music that he was able to understand and express what it was all about. Why twice she ran away, and where that left him: alone, going around the world looking for that woman-girl who knows love can endure. He had not yet found her, this "somebody fine" who might come along, and make him forget about loving his lost love.

Reminds me of another masterpiece, a sonnet:
Love is not love which altereth when it alteration finds
Nor bends with the remover to remove.
O no! It is an ever-fixed mark
That looks upon tempests, and is never shaken.

(The "ever-fixed mark" refers to a lighthouse.)

John14:6 Right On! | Reviewer: Scroberts
    ------ About the song Woodstock performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Yes, we are stardust; it is the building blocks of nature, but only God can breathe a living soul into a mass of subatomic particles. The only way to get back to the garden is to seek Him, and you will find, if you seek Him with all your heart, that He will find you. God is not found in a church. He will find you if you seek Him. All you have to do is ask.
