Hello, Again. This is a good Neil Diamond song.

I've been listening to Neil Diamond songs recently and something which was told to me a while back resurfaced; "There are two types of people in this world - those who like Neil Diamond and those who do not". I'll admit it here - I like Neil Diamond. There I said it. "Desiree", "America", "Sweet Caroline", "Heart Light", and one other which will be mentioned later here.

For those of you who do not like Neil Diamond, your input is welcome. I have a friend in Lancaster, PA who absolutely dislikes Neil Diamond. She has a good sense of humor and all but simply does not like Neil Diamond and, as a friend, I'd change the subject if she would become upset. With this in mind, I have a question - Why do some people strongly dislike Neil Diamond?

Into which category do you fall? Do you like Neil Diamond or do you dislike him?

Good Day  Smile

Happy A-Net anniversary.

Neil Diamond is just fine by me. At least he has music that can be read and includes more than a bass drum beat . . wink 

America or Sweet Caroline would get my vote out of the above . . .

Ah yes, the Jewish Elvis.... as campy as Neil is I like the guy. And apparently his most recent album, came out a year ago, is very good.

On face value Neil is cheesy and campy. And the rhinestone jackets don't help either. So people who can't get over what is on the surface often have a hard time accepting the real Neil, underneath the rhinestone encrusted pleather.

I saw him twice in concert back in the 1980's...the song I like best is (Coming to) America, as the words and music really mean something to people like me, whose grand/parents came to USA from Sweden back in early/mid 1900's...
When I went with my Mom to Sweden for my first time back in the 1980's, that song was stuck in my head and "playing" multiple times when we were flying back to US...I still think of that whenever I hear it since.

All of his songs sound alike. He stole his sound from this guy.

"Solitary Man"; I think this was recorded in 1970 but am not sure.

My sister was a Neil Diamond fan and I was introduced to his sings by listening to her records (sorry CDs for younger members) and grew to like them. However, I never knew what Neil Diamond looked like but judging from the sound of his voice I imagined a Clint Eastwood/lumberjack type man. Imagine my surprise when I first saw him - small, camp and cheesy. I have to admit that Neil Diamond is better to listen to than to watch, even though I thought he played the lead part in the remake of the Jazz Singer very well.

Put me down as a Neil Diamond fan.
