N is for...

...Neil Diamond
My theme for this year's a-z challenge is off the top of my head-the first musical group to pop into my head...not necessarily my favorite, just the first to show itself.

No NKOTB, no N'Sync. Instead I had two Neils duking it out in my head. (Sorry Neil Patrick Harris, you were not one of them.) Neil Diamond Gold, on 8-track, in my grandfather's maroon Cutlass Supreme. This song might be everywhere, and completely timeless, but my memory always takes me back to the seventies.


  1. The Red Sox have adopted Sweet Caroline for some reason. I read that it was written with Caroline Kennedy in mind....when she was 9...which makes the song a bit creepy. I do like some of his songs though - Jerusalem's one of my faves. And America. I heard Cracklin Rosie in a store the other day.

  2. Ba Bah Bah Baaaaaaaahhhhhhhh! So good! So good! So good!
