"Well, my bizarre, insatiable, and downright dangerous sexual habits led me to write this song..."

Every time a Neil Diamond song comes up, I think of  the Music Storytellers sketch.  (NSFW-ish)




***UPDATE*** Clicked on a link about old Neil and got this gem: (which may or may not be crazier than the sketch.)

"According to the Cracklin’ Rose Songfacts, Diamond got the idea for the song from a folk story of an Indian tribe in Northern Canada who had more men than women. On Saturday nights those guys without a girl made do with a bottle of Cracklin’ Rosie wine instead."

I wanted to put all 3 CCR songs on my list, especially since it's a double track for each entry, but decided that would be overkill.
1. Travelin' Band / Who'll Stop The Rain  2. Spirit In The Sky  3. Lookin' Out My Back Door / Long As I Can See The   4. In The Summertime  5. Get Ready
