Years ago I taped the video for the Neil Young song "Wonderin'" from MTV, but - despite my best efforts at being a packrat - I lost the tape upon which it was stored. I was quite pleased to find that a fellow enthusiast uploaded the video to YouTube.
The clip features Neil looking his looniest as he tries to woo back his true love, who left him for unspecified reasons. He is unshaven, looks like he hasn't slept in a week, and keeps flashing this demented grin as he pleads to his lover to return.
The song is from the 1983 album Everybody's Rockin', which features Neil in a rockabilly mode with backup band the Shocking Pinks. This is an oft-overlooked disc that highlights yet another of the genres Young masters.
A low-budget production, it remains one of my all-time favorite videos. There is also a better-quality version of the video on the MTV website.
