My Life According to: Neil Diamond

Here's a game created by AliCanary that is sure to get your creative juices flowing! Check out the rules below and get ready to write your entry. : )

Using only song titles from One Artist, cleverly answer these questions. You can't use the artist I used. Try not to repeat a song title. It's harder than you think! Repost as "My life according to (band name)" and tag me, AliCanary and SuffolkJason so we can come see your answers! (Ali's rules as seen in her post A Fun Game for Music Fans: My Life According to: Kate Bush )

Pick your artist: Neil Diamond

Are you a male or female? Solitary Man

Describe yourself: I Am, I Said

How do you feel? You Got to Me

Describe where you currently live: Brooklyn Roads

If you could go anywhere, where would you go? Coming to America

Your favorite form of transportation: The Boat that I Row

Your Best Friend: Cracklin' Rosie

You and your best friends are: Forever in Blue Jeans

What's the weather like: You Make It Feel Like Christmas

Favorite time of day: Thank the Lord for the Night Time

If your life was a TV show, what would it be called: Beautiful Noise

A big "thank you" to AliCanary for this thought-provoking challenge and for SuffolkJason for playing along. How about you -- are you ready to give it a go?

I'll give it a go but who remembers Jelly Roll Morton?

Hey, as long as you do, that's what counts! You'll bring us all up to speed with your post. : )

Oh, these are great, especially "Cracklin' Rosie", lol! I love that this game has caught on :)

I'm glad you started the ball rolling and am looking forward to discovering other people's choices.

You did a great job. But this is one I won't touch. I don't have any favorite artists anyone under 50 would have heard of.

Sounds like fun although I have to choose an artist that is quite popular. Otherwise, I might end up with a hip hop artist that no one here in PP knows about. LOL!

Clever answers- especially 'Forever in Blue Jeans'

Great picks. I did mine with Elvis Presley. :)

Thank you, but I don't think you would have to choose someone contemporary for this to be an interesting write and read. Lord knows Neil Diamond is baby boomer fan-based. There are certainly a lot of greats from "back in the day" who would make an interesting post with their song titles.

A hip-hop artist would be interesting! You don't have to follow the same path as anyone else in this. We want to know your choices. : )

Thank you, thank you she says, as she shields her eyes from the sequins of Neil Diamond's shirt.

Well now, I've got to scoot over and check out your Elvis selections. : )

I am thinking I am going to give this a go and see what I can come up with. I guess I had better go and read the rules before I start.
