  • Broken arrow, oorspronkelijk geschreven als Down down down, is een lied van Buffalo Springfield dat werd geschreven door Neil Young. Broken arrow verscheen op het tweede album van de band, Buffalo Springfield again genaamd. Het nummer werd in augustus 1967 opgenomen en het album werd in november uitgegeven. Decennia later gebruikte Young de titel van het lied nog eens als naamgever van het album Broken arrow (1996) dat hij met Crazy Horse uitbracht. Het oorspronkelijke lied Down down down werd opgenomen in september 1966 maar kwam op naam van Buffalo Springfield niet eerder uit tot het gehele repertoire verscheen op Box set (2001). Wel kwam het tussendoor uit op albums in andere samenstellingen, zoals van Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young op Déjà vu (1970) en op verschillende life- en verzamelalbums van Neil Young. Broken arrow daarentegen verscheen in de loop van de jaren op ten minste zeven albums van Buffalo Springfield en daarnaast ook nog op vier van Neil Young. Van Down down down zijn geen covers bekend. Van Broken arrow verschenen er enkele, zoals op een album van de Canadese zangeres Kate Rogers (Seconds, 2005) en in een muziekvideo door de Amerikaanse band Wilco (A MusiCares tribute to Neil Young, 2011). Een gebroken pijl (broken arrow) was een symbool van indianen voor vrede. De ranch waar Neil Young woont heeft hij omgedoopt naar de Broken Arrow Ranch.
  • "Broken Arrow" is a song written by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young and recorded by Buffalo Springfield on their 1967 album Buffalo Springfield Again. It was recorded in August and September 1967 at Columbia Recording Studios and Sunset Sound Recorders. It incorporates musical ideas from "Down Down Down," a demo Young recorded with Buffalo Springfield (and now available on the box set). "Broken Arrow" was confessional folk rock. It consists of three parts in three different time signatures interspersed with snippets of sounds, featuring organ, a jazz combo with piano, bass, drums, and a clarinet. The song begins with audience applause (taken not from a Buffalo Springfield show, as some expect, but rather from a concert by the Beatles) and the opening of "Mr. Soul" (which opens the album) recorded live in the studio. The second verse begins with the sound of an audience booing, while the Calliope plays a strange version of the song "Take Me Out to the Ball Game", before some weird sound effects bring on the verse. There is also the sound of a military snare drum, that plays drum rolls, first quietly, and getting louder and louder, until the fifth time, an unusual sound effect brings the song to the third verse. The Jazz combo plays an improvisation, first taken up by the clarinet, and followed by the piano, until it fades out, whereas, we only hear the beating of a heart, until that fades out, too. Each of the three verses uses surreal imagery to deal with emotions (emptiness of fame, teenage angst, hopelessness), and contains self-references to Buffalo Springfield and Young. They all end with the same lines: Did you see them, did you see them?Did you see them in the river?They were there to wave to you.Could you tell that the empty-quiveredBrown-skinned Indian on the banksThat were crowded and narrow,Held a broken arrow? An acoustic solo version of the song appears on the Neil Young live album Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968 which was released on Reprise Records in 2008. Of the members of the band, only Young was present at the recording. Background vocals from Richie Furay were added on later.
