Thursday's Flashback

One of the biggest stars of the seventies, Neil Diamond has reigned as a rock star for forty years. His albums are classics and songs like Cracklin’ Rosie, Song Sung Blue, Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show, Cherry Cherry, Sweet Caroline, and You Don’t Bring Me Flowers (with Barbra Streisand) defined his career. Neil also became a movie star in the 80’s with his role in The Jazz Singer. His versatility is legendary.

A few years ago he released a holiday tune that incorporated his best known songs into a Christmas carol. A Cherry Cherry Christmas instantly became a favorite that resounds on radio to this day. Every year it joins the ranks of the other classics at this time of year. A Cherry Cherry Christmas celebrates Neil’s career while simultaneously spreading holiday cheer.

The video Neil made this for song is a heartwarming watch indeed. It shows why this man is the star he is and it displays his incredible range without coming off as a vanity piece in the least. It’s Neil Diamond at his best.
