Neil Diamond – “Desiree” Live | Society Of Rock Videos

That “Sweet Passion Sound Of Your Loving Song”

“Desiree” is included in Neil Diamond’s eleventh studio album, “I’m Glad You’re Here With Me Tonight.” It received a television special which was aired on November 17, 1977. Not only did it receive three Emmy Awards nomination but it also earned an Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Musical/Variety from the Directors Guild of America.

The special was a thematic and “behind the scenes” based program with interspersed live performances. It also features a pioneering segment with one of the earliest broadcasts of what would come to be known as a music video with its treatment of Diamond’s song “Morningside”.

The track was a chart-topper and it was well-loved by Neil’s fans. Though it’s not a staple in his concerts, “Desiree” is one of his most popular hits owing to the fact that it dominated the charts upon its release.

  • Peaked at number 1 on the Easy Listening chart
  • Ranked at number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100
  • On American Top 40 broadcasted on August 26, 1978; it was the first long-distance dedication

As if we need more reasons to be impressed, Neil Diamond has definitely amassed several songs which became global hits!
