§ I Am Music and I Pick the Songs: Brooklyn Roads

{Song #31 « Song #32 » Song #33}

§ ≡ One of an ongoing series of posts in which I pick, in my not-so-humble opinion, the best songs of the second millennium. Feel free to offer constructive dissenting opinions; preferably set to music.

Song #32 is Brooklyn Roads sung by Neil Diamond.

I've always loved Neil Diamond's songs. And, though in general the songs I love are those with beautiful melody first and foremost, in Diamond's case, his lyrics intrigue me too.

You want nostalgia? You simply can't improve on this beautiful reminiscence of his boyhood in Brooklyn. Not alluded to in this song, but true nevertheless, Brooklyn is where he, coincidentally, went to high school with the equally talented Barbra Streisand.
