They were mad at him for what he wrote about the south. See the lyrics of Neil's song Southern Man.

Talking about songwriters, I'm surprised no-one has mentionned Leonard Cohen.
His lyrics are just so...

Good call. Nick Cave is also good, and Tom Waits.

Some people should be embarrassed by the lyrics of Southern man
and equally Ohio if they feel singled out by those songs. Ohio, live in 2000

Isn't Neil Young Canadian? Definitely give Nick Drake a try, from the UK side, if you've not come across him yet.

The OP mentioned being from a non-English speaking area. Nothing in my post infers I thought Neil Young was born in the US. We here do tend to hear a good deal from the UK, Canada, etc. .. but not other countries.

If you want to hear about songs originally written in French, you might want to listen to Bowie's covers of Jaques Brel's "Ma Mort" (My Death) and "Amsterdam".

I listened to Neil Young in Highschool. He was my morning coffee and a cig music before heading out.

The thing that makes neil so great is that he never bowed to the system, be it corporate or government.

His music is always evolving. He is an artist not afraid to take risk. You wont find that in music these days.

Technically he's Canadian. But he's lived in the U.S. since 1966, some three-quarters of his life, does 90% of his recording in the U.S., owns land in California and somewhere in the Midwest as well, so at this point keeping his Canadian passport is just a conversation piece.

I agree that the lyrics to Southern Man are a bit uhh... generalizing. Don't get me wrong I love the song, but he presents a pretty simplified, and vilifying view of Southern life.

Ohio not so much so. since it's a protest song and referring to a specific event.

Thanks. I am interesting in world music, in general.. but its hard to access it from the US. That is, I don't have the time to wade through the thousands of possibilities to find a few I might like.
