When I was a kid my parents listened to Neil Diamond all the time...which means I listened to Neil Diamond...all the time. Because of that, whenever I hear a song by him I feel a bit of nostalgia. Oh sure, I try and pretend I don't like it, but secretly I do. It is sort of like that scene in Tommy Boy (which I am also supposed to pretend I didn't like...but actually did) where David Spade and Chris Farley are driving and a Carpenters song comes on, both pretend to not like it but.....
Classic...but I really didn't like the movie...no really!
Now I should mention since I'm talking about Neil Diamond that I, in fact did have a Neil Diamond-ish do in the late 80's/ early 90's.
Though I was actually going for more of a Lost Boys look...
In any event, the reason for my meandering is that whenever August rolls around, I can't help but think of Neil Diamonds Hot August Night album.
So that was my subtle segue-way to August...so I thought I'd let Neil Diamonds words introduce them...
