” A Horse With No Name” was America’s first- and most successful single. Sure does sound like Neil Young- whose “Heart Of Gold” America replaced at #1. Dewey Bunnell who wrote the song admitted that he was inspired by Neil. Incredibly “A Horse With No Name” was banned on some radio stations in America- ‘horse” being a slang name for heroin.
