Neil Diamond – “September Morn” Live
Beautiful Melody And An Epic Performance
“September Morn” was written by Gilbert Bécaud and Neil Diamond. It was released on December 22, 1979. Neil is considered as “one of the world’s best-selling music artists of all time” which isn’t surprising given that he has released one huge hit after another.
A charismatic and captivating performer, he’s been referred to as the “Jewish Elvis.” In reality, he’s bridged generations with his music, serving as a missing link between the iconic poles of Elvis Presley (rock and roll) and Frank Sinatra (adult pop).
His songs have been covered several times by other musicians of varying genres. His music has stood the test of time which only proves how much influence he has on the industry.
In a 1976 Rolling Stone interview, he offered the view that his life and songwriting were inseparable, and that writing songs was therapeutic. “I’m an imperfect emotional being trying to figure out some way to give some kind of substance and meaning to my life,” he said. “I write these little songs and go and sing them in a recording studio and, later, in front of a lot of people. It seems an odd way to gain an inner sense of acceptance of the self. But it’s what I do.”
His compositions were nothing short of perfect — from the lyrics to the tune and melody. They are simply unforgettable.
