    ------ 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.)

    ------ 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.

Beautiful deepness | Reviewer: Juan Jos
    ------ About the song Helplessly Hoping performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

This song is about he loving deeply deeply the woman but she doesn't love him back, she feels kind of sorry for him, not in a bad way, she loves him like "mother-son" kind of love.
Finally, the woman has another man and she's a bit shocked that he is still there for her (choking on hello).
And there it says: "there are one person" (him) "there are two alone" (him and her) "there are three together (him, her and the other man) he doesn't want to loose her.
I dont know, I dont want to explain.
Its about mad mad love but no as it is shown on movies and shiets nowadays, true-heart-mad-real love. A hard to imagine love for most people.

A great parody reminded me how great this song is! | Reviewer: Weird Al Fan
    ------ About the song Carry On performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

"Weird Al" Yankovic included a great parody of this song on his new album "Mandatory Fun" named "Mission Statement", and I am so glad he did! As always, his parodies are really tributes to the original works. In this case, it reminded me of how great this song really is, and got it added to my playlist. His homage only enhances it.

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

I witnessed, I was there. Nobody was Full of themselves... we were glad to have found a bit of transparency in the Govt. -and our eyes opened... we listed, we heard, and we found our Voice... asked to be heard (turned down), held a # of enlightening protests/movements, only to be beaten & gunned down by the establishment STILL IN POWER TODAY! As for those who died too soon... alcohol, drugs, or...? -well, try to explain why it happens more Today than Yesterday. Police Officers, CEO's of Major Corporations, Govt. Official;s, CIA, ATF, & DEA Agents caught in more Corrupt and Hideous Crimes over drugs, money and Power... Worldwide.

And, as what a DORK doesn't believe, but just pretends to know... hippie Values were Not what we were after. All we wanted was Peace. To stop the killing, stay out of countries whose battles raged for a thousand years over Religion, land and loyalty... those who could defend themselves & Did Not Ask For U.S. aid, to stop the erroneous, wasteful spending of the Middle Class Taxes on Frivolous Govt. Play, Lobbyists & Waste -which is 1,000 X's more Corrupt today because DORK's Don't Vote... which keeps the U.S. Govt's Nose ALWAYS in others business- to this day. No Taxation Without Representation -meaning: ONLY IN TIMES OF WAR... and this is why we STILL have BOOTS on Every Continent! Hence, the song "Monster" by John Kay (Steppenwolf). DORK- tear off your own head... it's a Doll Revolution... and like yarko said: ...with any social revolution there are negative and positive effects. The world is a much better place because of the enlightenment that occurred during that time. If only our children were taught what we were preaching then! They are our future, but look at their behavior now. All Nations: Hallucinations- Are you ready to die for the future of an illusion? If we are going to Insist on maintaining a State we can obey, then we have to raise children who are willing to sacrifice Capital Gains, High profits and Corrupt Positions, and accept that they may have to die for it... so quit whining!

You said it, Peg.

And, to gbigsangle... the term "Hippies" was given by the Right-Wingers, kiddo...

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

Wow, you are all pretty full of yourselves. You are not the only people to pass through this world, nor in fact the only people on the planet. I was too young to be a hippie. As you were out there being hippies, I was sitting in my living room watching it all unfold in my living room watching TV waiting to grow up. You did change the world a bit and I grew up a little more aware of the need to love our planet. care for my fellow man, consider drugs as a danger, love music, hate war, see protest as a means of non-violent method to make change, recognize that money wasn't everything and value peace. Get over yourselves a tad.

Classic. Crosby, Stills & Nash before Neil Young. | Reviewer: Robzilla White
    ------ About the song Helplessly Hoping performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Beautiful alliterative American English poetry
Three rock singers going acoustic.
Three part harmony recorded in the Beatles studio
while the Fabs recorded "the White album" across the hall.

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

Having lived through that turbulent time, this song represents the governments refusal to accept what it does not either understand or disagrees with. It is the right of the people to rise up against the government for actions that do not keep with the Constitution. It is our right and duty to see to this according to everything that Thomas Jefferson wrote. This is the reason for the Bill of Rights and the very existence of the Constitution as demonstrated in the song Monster by Steppe wolf.

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

I was going down a rabbit trail of looking for this song's lyrics and got sucked into the hole of this conversation. It's been quite an education about the 60s. I love hearing the true stories from those who were there.
I think the wonder of this song is how it can be so fiercely debated by both sides of an issue, which is what makes it one for the annuls. It speaks to the human condition - no matter which decade because human nature and our inherent problems keep following. (thanks for letting me wax on as well. God bless)
