Folk rock supergroup Crosby, Stills and Nash have officially split up after a feud broke out between David Crosby and Graham Nash and they lashed out at each other via email. The group had been making music together for almost half a century before the break-up.
We may never see them come out with another record ever again. But to compensate for that, we do have their long catalogue of music to fall back on. So, let us take a walk down memory lane. Here's a list of songs by Crosby, Stills and Nash that capture their glory days.
Just A Song Before I go
Written by Nash, the song is a reflection of the life of a performing musician who has to leave his loved ones home and earn a living through his concerts. It is primarily an acoustic ballad with two electric guitar solos performed by Stephen Stills. Listen to it here.
The lyrics of this track were co-authored by Crosby, Stills and Paul Kantner, one of the founding members of Jefferson Airplane. The song was composed during the Vietnam War and talks about the horrors faced by survivors of a nuclear attack. Check it out here.
Wasted On The Way
When Nash wrote the song sometime before 1982, little did he know it would go on to become one of the group's greatest hits. The song dealt with the concept of living life by moment and not wasting time. Discover it here.
"Helplessly Hoping" is an out-and-out folk rock song that depicts the story of the painful separation of two lovers. Stills wrote the lyrics when he was going through a similar situation with Judy Collins. Listen to it here.
This song about domestic bliss was written by Nash when Joni Mitchell and he were living together with Mitchell's two cats. "Our House" is one extraordinary song inspired by an ordinary domestic moment. Check it out here.
