Saturday Matinee: Ramada Inn by Neil Young & Crazy Horse

Progressive Epics. Folky Meditations. Extended Jazz Improvisations. Some songs are just long, y'know? So when better to sit down and take it all in than on a Saturday with your beverage of choice in hand?

Today's Matinee: "Ramada Inn" ain't the longest track on the sprawling Psychedelic Pill by Neil Young & Crazy Horse, but it is plenty expansive. The kind of personal, detailed story that might have been told in 4 minutes, "Ramada Inn" instead takes its listener for a 16-minute ride-along with a loving but beaten-down couple, with tons of Crazy Horse guitar licks to pass the time.
