Neil Diamond Greatest Hits
There is a certain timeless quality to the Neil Diamond Greatest Hits albums. Neil Diamond had his hayday in the 60s, but many people still love his music today. Some popular bands even cover his songs.
- "Cherry Cherry" Neil Diamond songs can be quite "poppy" at times, especially the ones from his early days. In this greatest hit, Neil Diamond sings about a woman who really turns him on. In it, Neil exclaims, "I love the way that you do me." This line can easily be taken out of context in modern days, but it was surely innocent in the 1960s.
- "Hanky Panky" What a playboy, that Neil Diamond. Another greatest hit declares over and over again that "my baby does the hanky panky." It is unclear exactly what he means by "hanky panky", but you can leave it up to your imagination.
- "Thank the Lord for the Night Time" Neil Diamond sings as a man who finds the day time boring. Daylight is the time for the nine to five world and all its stress and politics. This greatest hit by Neil Diamond extolls the wonders of those hours after the sun goes down. Like many other Neil Diamond songs, he sings all this to a woman named "baby" and "girl".
- "Red Red Wine" Although UB40 made this song a greatest hit of the 1980s, it was actually written by Neil Diamond. Wine is a wonderful thing to love. The singer's love of wine is in its ability to help him forget his pain.
- "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon" This greatest hit by Neil Diamond became an even bigger hit in the 1990s when Urge Overkill covered it in the "Pulp Fiction" movie soundtrack. The lyrics speak to yet another woman named "girl". This girl seems quite young, and the song's narrator catches a lot of flack for that. However, theres no need to worry because she'll be legal in no time.
