Neil Young

Love Is a Rose

Composed by Neil Young

Song Review by

A lighthearted classic, Neil Young wrote this during the rehearsals for the 1974 CSN&Y Doom Tour of baseball stadiums. The song has a wonderfully infectious and simple three-chord progression and melody, and its accessible lyrics provided Young's friend Linda Ronstadt with a fine late-'70s cover version hit.
