“Old Man” by Neil Young

While I certainly don’t personally identify with the narrator of the song, his rocky relationship with his father and his admittance that he’s “a lot like” him, and that he “needs someone to love me the whole day through”, is incredibly touching.  It always strikes me as a painfully honest song, which is honestly painful.
