15. ‘Are You Ready For The Country?’ by Neil YoungHarvest

A fine slice of Americana, ‘Are You Ready For The Country?’ marks the halfway point of Young’s most commercially popular album Harvest. The song finds Young singing as earnestly as ever over a jaunty bar-room piano and a swaying back-beat, before a screeching electric guitar emerges from the distance in time for the rousing chorus. A great song to play on a long scenic drive through the countryside.
