But there's a full moon risin'
Let's go dancin' in the light
We know where the music's playin'
Let's go out and feel the night
In the album Harvest Moon: Neil Young sings about survival, and his hopefulness is catching.
“What this album is about is this feeling, this ability to survive and continue to grow and get higher than you were before,” says Young. “Not just maintain, not just feel well. Not just 'I’m still alive at forty-five.’ You can be more alive.” (Rolling Stone).

We don't really need a reason to drink tequila, but since National Tequila Day is this Friday, July 24, by all means, pass the hot sauce and mas tequila, por favor.
