One of the most haunting songs in The Byrds’ catalogue, and one of David Crosby’s finest compositions, “Everybody’s Been Burned” contains a melody, lyric and arrangement in perfect synthesis. Lyrically, it’s typical Crosby – unspecific, vague yet beautiful – “Everybody knows and me/I know that door that shuts just before/You get to the dream you see”. The music is similarly gentle, with a gorgeous, Eastern sounding guitar part from McGuinn and some great bass playing from Chris Hillman. However, it’s David Crosby that’s the star of the show – his vocal is tender, searching and immaculate. Arguably the highlight of Younger Than Yesterday.
