My favourite version by far is Neil Young's. Not many people can convey emotions with such depth as Lennon could, but Young is one of them.


Indeed :)   I still think Neil Young's song from the film 'Philadelphia' should have won the Oscar over Springsteen's........Young's music/lyrics/vocal performance is in another universe when it comes to emotion, imo.

How about:
Quote
He worked for 30 years retired now he's checkin' to check it
 The corporation got richer from his bleedin' and sweatin'
 The government ain't got no safety net he ran out of blessings
 And they cuttin' social security cause they don't respect him
 So now he sits on the curb wanders 'round
 Sleeps on the ground walks for miles
 Couldn't pay his bills so he lost his house
 And that's what the deal is all about
 Either get rich or you gonna' get pimped
 Either shout first or you gonna' get hit
 Land of the free and home of the brave
 Land of the G's and home of the slave

From Led Zeppelin's "The Immigrant Song," which I've always liked, this quote carries a huge deal of meaning and motivation for me:

So now you'd better stop
And rebuild all your ruin
For peace and trust can win the day
Despite of all you're losing.

Also,

Pay no mind to the rabble.
