All my changes were there

CLASSIC

Pandora: Whenever the song Helpless by Neil Young plays, you show the wrong song lyrics! You show the song lyrics for CSN's Helplessly Hoping, which is a different song!

Going to see Neil Young tomorrow at farm aid 2014 in Raleigh NC saw CSN in August of 2014 in Greensboro NC they still play and sound great

Neil is able to being all performers to the next level.

A great song on an album of great songs. By adding Neil Young on Déjà Vu Crosby Stills and Nash did the impossible -- the follow up is actually superior to thei debut album.

Best work was Dead Man soundtrack.

Rebellion for freedom can be as much of a trap than the everyday norm. If you take the same stance and keep it for years, you might not be able to move when its all said and done.

'(Neil Young's) solo career trumps CSN's whole catalog..'

I don't disagree, but you'd have to say the same about all but a select few acts in the history of rock & roll music too.

It doesn't get any better than this! Young was the best part of CSN&Y. His solo career trumps CSN's whole catalog

Neil Young is the man, always has been always will be. The best stuff Canada ever produced by leaps and bounds. Okay, maybe a bit of Joanie, but this music has been in my life for over 40 years and I never tire of it or of sharing it with people who do not know it. Love the CSN&Y

CSN had to be the most total talent combination assembled in their time. Then add Neil Young and these guys are over the top. Helpless exemplifies just how totally talented these guys were.

Neil Youngs talent and uniqeness outshine C.S.N. as always. You should check out his Unplugged version of this song, the whole album is excellent.

Common' guys, you're only as helpless as you sound -- and man do you guys sound helpless! ):-0

Perhaps the most Young song on the whole album.
It's also the one song which doesn't sound like CSN.
(Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great song... just not CSN worthy)
