Music: Neil Diamond

"What a beautiful noise
Coming into my room
And it's waiting for me
Just to give it a tune."
— "Beautiful Noise"

Neil Diamond (born January 24, 1941) made his debut as a Singer Songwriter in the mid-Sixties, with such hits as "Cherry Cherry" and "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon". Diamond also had a massive hit with 1972 concert album Hot August Night. He has revived his career many times, starting with the successful soundtrack album from the failed movie Jonathan Livingston Seagull. The momentum that had run out by the beginning of The Eighties was given new force with the song "Heartlight", which was rejected from the soundtrack of the movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial but was accepted by millions of fans.

Diamond faded a bit in The Nineties but still has a following.
