Neil Diamond cover songs are, I think, my equivalent of “No, I haven’t read the book, but I’ve seen the Wishbone episode,” which makes loving me a very specific prospect. My favorite ex-girlfriend works at a record label and regularly hand-mails me (through the postal service!) CDs she thinks I’ll like and also things like bumper stickers promoting the 2005 release of a Pussycat Dolls album, which I also like. Anyhow, here is a list of songs I never heard until I heard Neil Diamond cover them, probably on Rainbow.

“Both Sides Now,” Joni Mitchell

< >

Also the only Joni Mitchell song I have ever heard, unless you count “Paints and Brushes” from the background of that one 30 Rock episode!

“Suzanne,” Leonard Cohen

< >

I love this song! I bet I would like other Leonard Cohen songs.

“He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother,” I actually have no idea who originally did this

< >

“Chelsea Morning,” Joni Mitchell

< >

Wait, I guess I have heard two Joni Mitchell songs!!
