Neil Diamond Songs
Neil Diamond Songs is a website dedicated to the great singer-songwriter Neil Diamond. Born into a Jewish Russian-Polish family, he is a son of a dry goods merchant who grew up in several homes in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, attending Erasmus Hall and Abraham Lincoln High Schools.
Diamond spent his early career as a writer in the Brill Building, and had an early success writing "I'm a Believer", "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You," "Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)," and Love to Love which were recorded by The Monkees.
There is a popular misconception that Diamond wrote and composed these songs specifically for the "Pre-Fab Four." In truth, Diamond had written, composed and recorded these songs to release himself, but the cover versions were released before his own. The unintended, but successful, consequence of this was that Diamond began to get noticed and gain fame not only as a singer and performer, but also as a songwriter. "I'm a Believer" was the Popular Music Song of the Year in 1966.
His first hit in the 1960's was Solitary Man, followed by Cherry Cherry, Kentucky Woman and Do It. As well as a song writing star a new singing sensation was born.
Below you will see a few clips of some of Neil Diamond's best recordings. Enjoy.
