Welcome to the start of another week! My boys are on fall break this week, so they are home and keeping me busy. Now that it’s October I am in full on fall mode and loving pumpkin spice everything.
Neil Young is one of my favorite musicians, and I always enjoy hearing his 1992 hit Harvest Moon. (The whole album is fantastic.) Recently a cover of Harvest Moon popped up in my playlist when I was listening to Spotify. It takes the spirit of the original song, but adds in this cool calypso-type vibe. Which version do you like better?

You can also listen to the Spotify Session they did in July here. (Which I like better than this live one, obviously the audio is better.)

I should note that this particular version is NOT the original (it’s a little slower). You can listen to the original version here. What I love about this live version from the film Heart of Gold is you can see that the band uses a broom as an instrument. I think that’s so cool.
I’m a die-hard Neil Young fan so, for me, nothing beats the original, but the Lord Huron version comes in at a really, really close second. I love it.
Rules from Lauren:
Every Monday share one or two of songs you’ve been enjoying lately. It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites – just something you’d like to share with others. If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).
If you would like to participate in Music Monday, please join the link up by sharing your post’s url over at this week’s post on Always Me.
