Neil Young's 17th LP took a stab at rhythm and blues, employing a horn section that sounds like a scrappy bar band, and a casual authenticity that occasionallyl doubles back for a wink or two. In songs such as "Ten Men Workin'" and the title track, which spawned a hit video that won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Video of the Year, Young and his group roll blithely through the music.
This Note's for You made it No. 61 on the charts before quickly disappearing. The title tune received some airplay, mostly because of the success of the video, which parodied ‘80s pop stars and commercial product placement.
