Oops!

Yes Dolly wrote it and sang it first. She also remade it two other times-one of those being a duet with Vince Gill. I loved all of Dolly’s versions!

A friend of the family used to work security at a fancy hotel in Chicago. Neil Diamond complained to security that people were looking at him and he wanted them to stop it.

I can’t see him without thinking of that story.

I took my mom to one of his concerts. I have never seen so many middle-aged women sobbing and swaying in one place.

He puts on a great show, that is for sure!

Notice how Reba , Fogerty, Diamond let their voices do the entertaining vs today’s grab yourself version of music.

One of my personal favorites is neil Diamonds Johnathon Livingston Seagull...and the song “Dear Father”

And my other favorite of his.......”If there were no dreams.......and there were no dreamers.......how could I have dreamed you up.....you’re still a mystery to me......................................”

He is a brilliant writer

Oh No!!! Hide your dog quick. Deandre is singing with the guys. Thoudsands of dogs across America will be suffering brain hemmorrhages if he goes falsetto. I am surprised that PETA hasn’t gone after AI for this yet.

Reba seems like such a good egg. She did that movie Tremors, which I like and she did a good job! She just always seems down to earth and likeable.

Reba is a decent actress! I loved her sitcom “Reba”...she has another coming out in the fall-”Malibu Country”-I hope it does as well. She was on broadway for a while playing Annie Oakley in Annie Get Your Gun. Heard she did a great job with that too!

I prefer Dolly’s version, too.

This is funny. In a pre-taped segment, the also-rans (dressed like choir singers) make fun of Randy always saying "You could sing the phonebook!" by literally singing the phonebook.

Mantasia gets carried away and starts screaming addresses and phone numbers.

Everyone stops to stair at him.

Skylar: Every. Time.

Back live, Seacrest and Scotty McCreery (seated in the audience) present Randy with his own phonebook.

Seacrest: Here. Get some new material.

Wow the Phone Book song was better than all the group songs Ford videos put together.

Grammy stuff maybe.

She and the son-in-law have me rolling. I catch it on cable every once in a while.

Did JLO just sing something about an orangutan? And did Fantasia try on JLo's pants before she wore them? What does she have hiding in there? Steven's sloth?
