“That’s my pledge, judge”

If you haven’t checked out Neil Young’s video “My Pledge,” do it now.

Rolling Stone writes:  “The clip opens on a pile of old letters and notices that are cleared to make room for a piece of lined paper that begins to fill with Young’s words, which he both speaks and sings with thick Auto-Tune throughout ‘My Pledge.’

The initial letter is folded into a paper boat and sent across a sea of stamps, after which Young’s vivid lyrics and the images and people they evoke – including Jimi Hendrix, John F. Kennedy and Florence Nightingale – appear on an array of postcards.”

It’s a beauty, very haunting.

The song is include on the album: “Peace Trail.”
