I was sold the very first time I heard Neil Young sing ‘Hey Hey My My’ back in college. It was impossible not to feel a sense of melancholy and an instant attachment to the lyrics as he started to sing. So I was a bit skeptical at first when I found out a few years ago that the Chromatics had done their own version of the song (also featured on a recent episode of Mr. Robot). It’s a safe cover, but the weightiness of the music is not lost in this translation. It actually works so well with a female’s voice, and that effect at the 3:50 minute mark is a nice little touch.
