Well I respect Neil, the song is kind of become self parody when he performs it now. This one wasn't bad. But I think he was on American Idol or some other show before me and it just didn't seem right

I like his song about the hippy priest: The Reverend Bluejeans.

You gotta admit though, given his age and diagnosis, this performance shows he's still got it.

I got sick of "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" when they started playing it every time Papelbon took the mound.

/Also a Sox fan.

Of all the good songs Neil has, why did this one have to be the one he is known for?

//it's not a bad song but he has a TON of songs that are far superior

One could make the case he was a better songwriter than a performer.

Case in point: Take his songwriting, some damn good session musicians and put The Monkees faces on the front of the album and you get I'm A Believer.

It isn't a bad song, but I could go the rest of my life and never hear it again.

I took my parent to see  him in Indianapolis for his 50th year anniversary tour (before he announced that was going to be his last tour) and the man is a consummate showman. He did his entire show but he hadn't sung "America" - that was his encore.

It was 2017, so about a year after Trump was elected, and Neil's on stage explaining that he didn't write the song as some "LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!" jingoistic anthem but that it was meant to reflect the hope that an immigrant has when they're coming someplace new to try for a better life. In the middle of all that, some jabroni yells "TRUMP! WOOOOOOO!" and Neil doesn't miss a beat, he just says "Yes, Trump came from a family of immigrants." Factually true, politically neutral, shut the person up. Couldn't ask for anything more in Indiana in 2017.

I agree with you. I think he is a better songwriter. He hasn't been a good singer for a good many years, unfortunately.

Sweet Caroline takes far too long to get to the payoff.
