Neil Young - "Johnny Magic"/"Light a Candle" (video)

Neil Young has been making a series of no budget music videos for his upcoming album Fork in the Road. The title track was released last month and now we have two different videos for “Johnny Magic” and one for “Light a Candle”. The first video for “Johnny Magic” was shot in Neil’s LincVolt; the electric car he’s been developing that was apparently the inspiration for the album. The second “Johnny” video features Neil’s dog, Carl, and “Light a Candle” features his wife, Pegi. The songs are as raw and ragged as the videos although “Light a Candle” is a lovely ballad.
