Downtown

Composed by Neil Young

Song Review by

Propelled by a grungy, garage-band guitar riff, "Downtown" is one of the highlights of Mirror Ball. The song celebrates rock & roll, pure and simple. The groove is positively infectious, and Young's lyrics and singing capture all of joy of the genre. It's one of Young's most fun songs, and like a lot of songs on the album, wouldn't be out of place in the Crazy Horse repertoire.
