It’s official. I am SO SICK of “Sweet Caroline.”
I’ve never been a big fan of Neil Diamond. I always thought he was cheesy and I’d fast-forward through him in The Last Waltz. However, after I moved here and started getting on the Red Sox bandwagon, the song started to grow on me. I’d sing along and dance around to it during Red Sox games…and I’ve even karaoked to it with a group of friends.
But now I am so so so sick of it. I came to this realization today when I was loading my car after a productive Costco run and some young woman in an SUV came driving into the parking lot blaring “Sweet Caroline.”
My first thought: “Oh no.” And then for whatever reason, she sat in her car for a while as the song continued to blast. My thoughts at that point: “MAKE IT STOP! MAKE IT STOP! MAKE IT STTTTTTTTTTOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
I am so over you, Caroline…and you, too, Neil.Filed under Greater Boston (General), Music, New England, Uncategorized, red sox | Comment (0)
