I reserve the right to change my mind, but as of now, the PERFECT song of my lifetime is:
Carry On/Questions by CSNY, the opening track of their Deja Vu album.
Summer 1970, just back from Africa, not quite headed to Lincoln to go to college.
The center bridge harmonies: “Carry on, love is coming, love is coming to us all” is the SOUND of Woodstock, free concerts in Golden Gate Park and all things hippie.
THEN, comes the bass line, the ethereal organ and lead guitar as we bridge between “Carry On” and “Questions”…….probably the most perfect instrumental interlude in rock history.
AAAHHHHHHH, I’m there Dude.
Love you and tell Lady Beth hell.
