Neil Diamond is one of the most iconic and successful singer-songwriters ever. With a career spanning over five decades, he has produced an extensive body of work that includes some of the most beloved songs in popular music. Below are what I consider some of Neil Diamond’s best songs. Do you agree? Let me know.
Last night was my first time seeing Neil Diamond live, and he didn’t disappoint. For two hours he played a non-stop setlist of his top hits (“Sweet Caroline,” “Forever in Blue Jeans,” “Kentucky Woman,” “Cherry Cherry,” etc.) and three terrific songs from his new album: Melody Road. The highlights of the night, for me, included his renditions of “Play Me” and “America,” which I have videos of below. I also loved seeing him perform the absolutely beautiful “Nothing But a Heartache” from Melody Road. If you get a chance to see Neil Diamond live, do so. He puts on a great show.
