Crosby, Stills and Nash: “Hopelessly Hoping”

ALBUM: Crosby, Stills and Nash

YEAR: 1969

WRITER:  Stephen Stills

It was the B-side of CSN’s debut single, “Marrakesh Express,” which peaked at number-28 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Stephen Stills recalls writing “Hopelessly Hoping” for Crosby, Stills and Nash’s debut album.  ”A lot of alliteration from a cautious cowboy. [Laughs] Halfway through the second verse it’s, ‘Oh my God, can I keep this up?’ It was just torturous. I got a letter from the university I got basically bored with, telling me how much they enjoyed having it in their English class.”

Crosby, Stills and Nash released their self-titled debut album on June 28th, 1969.
