    ------ 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)

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

I have been a fan of CSN for many years. But I never broke down there songs, so one day i did and I agree with the words to this song. To many people have died in the name of Christ. They died because of there faith! Amen

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

She was due to appear on the Dick Cavett show on the Monday after Woodstock, but nevertheless was set to play on Sunday at Woodstock. But when it became obvious that there would be huge road-clogging crowds at the festival, it was decided that if she performed as planned she might not be able to get to the Cavett show on time, and it was to be a very important appearance for her career. Missing Woodstock was a lifetime regret and writing this song was a salve for her emotional wound.

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

My wife has a dog that fits the song to a tee. A true Harlequin. Wishes he could fly when they go out for a walk. Confused that he can't go with her to work in the morning so waits at the stairs for her to return. Sure not the intent of this song but works in our house.

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

Embarrassed by this because I've been a CSN(Y) fan since they first performed "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" at Woodstock. I don't think whether or not it's an allusion to an acid trip is important. I can soooooo relate to the viewpoint character (Graham or someone he developed who would have this viewpoint) and his wandering into Winchester Cathedral and then screaming to be let out. I don't think the song bashes anything that Christ actually taught but what man later made of Christianity. As with any religion, as time goes on it gets polluted by what men make of it. And one thing men make of it (women probably would never have made this of it if they'd had more power) is a reason to go to war. Who is buried in the great cathedrals all over Europe? Although you get shrines to a few people like Tomas a Becket, mainly cathedrals are places where men of war are venerated. In the times the great cathedrals were being built, those riding to war were led and directed by kings who proclaimed they were doing so in the name of Christ. In the time period of the song, Viet Nam was a live issue. Troops were led from behind by presidents and generals, proclaiming we were going to war to protect democracy---but since a lot of bastions of the Christian West were involved, you can infer that the thoughts of our heads of state were Democracy=Christianity=we're the good guys dying, if we're Christian, in the name of Christ. Did Christ preach a message of war? No, and neither did Muhammad, the Buddha, Zoroaster, Abraham... Man has both a selfish and a godly nature; lots of men acceding to the former will give us a world at odds with itself. I'll go out on a limb here and say maybe that's why the world has had a sequence of Prophets and not just one forever and always. The message starts out pure---there is one God, we should love him and pray to him, all men are brothers---but eventually, after the Prophet dies and men take over, the pure water of the message of any of these Prophets gets diverted and polluted. That panicked "Open up the gates of the church and let me out of here!" makes perfect sense for a person who wandered in looking for some peace and quiet and a sense of spirituality and then was smitten by all these monuments to men of war. And the line that has the viewpoint person high above/upon the altar---has anyone given some thought to the idea that the viewpoint character is Christ? I mean, really, where do you put a crucifix in a cathedral but high above the altar? Perhaps it's Christ Himself singing about what a mess we've made of the faith He taught in 2000 years,

Jesus is a latinized name(greek) changed by the emperor constantine, why they changed the name of the messiah?the HEBREW name.why they blotted out the original name that is in hebrew? Christianty want to let us worship the sun gods. The original hebrew name written in paleo hebrew was YAHUSHA,the messiah! halleluYAH! Praise be to YAH! We cant say halleluJE praise be to jesus?well u are kidding me if u said that. Letter j was just in 1500's era.there was no letter j before in the time of messiah. YAhusha the name of the son and Yahuah the name of the spirit or the father. .halleluYAH! Shalom2!(hebrew greetings)

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

What I remember most from the drug culture of the '60s is all of the lives that were destroyed by alcohol, heroin, cocaine, marijuana, LSD, etc. Good, kind, talented people who blew their minds and lost their lives because they decided to live life without regard for themselves or for others. Any lifestyle that is based upon pleasure for pleasure's sake must by its very nature fall in upon itself. There were some people who were truly invested in ending the war and fighting the establishment, but for most it was just about getting stoned and getting laid.

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

Musically and vocally, the song Wooden Ships ranks among the best performed by Crosby, Stills and Nash. The lyrics, though thought- provoking to some, have always been confusing and ambiguous to me. I would love to hear the music and vocals of this song attached to another subject matter entirely with more succinct lyrics. Plainly said, IMHO the lyrics were weak.
