Last night my mom, dad, 3 sisters and my awesome sister-in-law rocked out to Neil at his concert. We had a BLAST singing and dancing and laughing and listening to the awesome music from this amazing artist. I must say, we were a little outnumbers by white haired individuals but we even got them up and grooving for "Sweet Caroline" and "America." Going and coming we sung our hearts out to his Greatest hits, thanks to my mom (I must download the songs on my ipod when I get home) last night was one of those best night of my life moments. We are true fans.
We're comin' to AMERICA. Everywhere the flags unfurled, We're coming to America.... We're comin' to America (sing with me now), we're comin' to America, we're comin' to America, we're comin' to America -- TODAY."
You just gotta LOVE Neil Diamond. I remember as a child doing some jazzercise in the front room of a little white brick home with my 3 sisters and my little brother to his Jazz Singer album (yep, that's right -- album. Not even a cassette tape, hadda have it on record). We would run in place as fast as we could and then do a bazillion jumping jacks in our leotards and leg warms. Those were the glory days.
