Four Songs You Didn't Know Were Actually By Neil Diamond

Ah, Neil Diamond. These days he seems to be known best for that one song that is inexplicably played at every baseball game that ever happens in America. You know, the tune that gets half the stadium to shout monosyllabically along to the brass section. I had a friend named Caroline who was eventually entirely turned off to going to Red Sox games with her dad. I can't imagine why.

Turns out Mr. Diamond wrote plenty more than the anthem to our national pasttime. You may have been enjoying Neil Diamond songs for years without even knowing it. Here are four that might have crept into your iTunes in disguise.
