Re: Neil Diamnd - Rare Public Appearance at MLB Game

@TennisBuf  I just watched this on Youtube. Who was the guy next to Diamond, seeming to help him and singing with him?

Re: Neil Diamnd - Rare Public Appearance at MLB Game

I never knew all the words to Sweet Caroline.  Since I have come across this thread I'm going to post the lyrics and head to youtube to listen and sing along!

 

[Verse 1]
Where it began
I can't begin to know when
But then I know it's growing strong
Was in the spring
And spring became the summer
Who'd have believed you'd come along

[Pre-Chorus]
Hands, touchin' hands
Reachin' out, touchin' me, touchin' you

 

[Chorus]
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I've been inclined
To believe they never would

[Verse 2]
But now I look at the night
And it don't seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two
And when I hurt
Hurtin' runs off my shoulders
How can I hurt when holdin' you

[Pre-Chorus]
Warm, touchin' warm
Reachin' out, touchin' me, touchin' you

[Chorus]
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I've been inclined
To believe they never would
Oh no no

[Outro]
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
Sweet Caroline
I believe they never could
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good

I saw Neil Diamond in the late 1970's and can still feel the intensity of his music at that concert.   Such a magical experience and I treasure it.

I loved to watch Neil Diamond perform his "Coming To America."

 

It brought thoughts of my grandparents coming to this special land for a new life.

 

I find it incredibly moving.

The person standing next to Neil is  Will Swenson - the Broadway actor who is set to play the younger version of Neil Diamond in the "A Beautiful Noise The Neil Diamond Musical".

Re: Neil Diamnd - Rare Public Appearance at MLB Game

Neil Diamond's songs are timeless and I am sure the crowd was thrilled and singing along, one and all!  I am a Yankee fan and had the honor of going to Fenway Park to see a game years ago, I love Fenway Park and seeing Neil Diamond there , what can I say.

 

I am  so sad to hear his has Parkinson's disease, I wasn't aware.  Heartbreaking.

He was magic in concert!  I was fortunate to see him a couple of times live and he was incredible.  Love his music and listen often  An American treasure!

 

I often wonder how Caroline Kennedy feels when she hears it knowing she was the inspiration for such an iconic song.

I LOVE LOVE Neil Diamond's songs/singing!!!  Heart

 

His "Hot August Night" (1987)  is the ONLY "Record(s)" .. (and then CD's), I've literally worn out, several, in fact!! 

I have to keep BACKUP copies!!  It'll live forever!

Saw Neil Diamond LIVE in DC.. and nearly fainted!  ... couldnt even breath regularly, during the show!! .. it was sooo good!

 

My sister is Boston says the Boston crowd sings "Sweet Caroline" at each of their Games, with or without Neil Diamond... and LOUDLY!  DISTINCTLY!!

 

Parkinson's??  Neil.. DARN!!! .. noooo way!! 

May G-d give comfort to our inspiring Neil Diamond!
