It Hits You Right In The Feels

Neil Diamond wrote and completed “I Am… I Said” in four months. It was his auto-biographical song. He admitted that it was a pretty tough time for him and he channels that feeling to us. When he was interviewed by Mojo magazine in 2008, he said:

“It was consciously an attempt on my part to express what my dreams were about, what my aspirations were about and what I was about. And without any question, it came from my sessions with the analyst.”

This has been considered a very powerful song that foreign musicians even made their own versions. It is simply a timeless classic. It was included in his album, “Stones” released on November 1971. Just check out this cover by Lionel Richie. It has everything you want and more – soul and a bucket load of emotion. It’s hard not to get all emotional while listening to this.
