Why Can’t I Stop Listening To -“I AM…I SAID” by NEIL DIAMOND (1971)- ???


/  \


“…But I’ve Got An Emptiness Deep Inside

And I’ve Tried

But It Won’t Let Me Go

And I’m Not A Man Who Likes To Swear

But I Never Cared For The Sound Of Being Alone…”

… …

Neil Diamond

… …

“…I Am, I Said

To No One There

And No One Heard At All

Not Even The Chair

I Am, I Cried

I Am, Said I

And I Am Lost

And I Can’t Even Say Why. …”






It’s Turned Into One Of THOSE Nights.



Depressingly Depressing.

I Mean, Come On…

…When Do YOU Break-Out The Ole…



This Is The Only Song Of His On My Player…

…And I Never Listen To It…

…Unless I’m Having A Little Personal Pity Party For Me, Personally.

I Love This Song.


…Has Always Been My Favorite Track Of His.


The Lyrics Always Spoke To Me A Tad.

Guess I’ve Been Kinda Depressing.

But When I Get The Blues…

…I Tend To Listen To Sad Songs.


You Do It, Also!!!

You KNOW You Do!!!

Don’t You Dare Try And Lie To Me!!!


Some Peeps, Eh?!

(*shakes head in a disappointing manner*)

Now I Suppose I’m Gonna Be Taking Shit From You Just Because I Broke-Down And Broke-Out Ole NEAL, Eh?!


He Has That Effect On Some Peeps, My Peeps.

I Suppose I Can’t Hold It Against You.

I Could TRY To Do So…

…But Doubt I’d Get Very Far With it.

So I’ll Just Shut-Up.

It’s Not Something I Do Easily.


…Unless I’m Around People I Don’t Know, Nor Want To Speak With.

In Moments Of That Type…

…I’m Like A Younger, Taller,  Better-Looking Version Of…



If You Get That Quip…

…I’m Proud Of You For Paying Attention In Class.


If You Didn’t Get It…


…You Probably Just Didn’t Give A Shit In The First Place.



Come In Here To Vent With Y’all A Touch…


…I Crack A Smile In The Really Real World!

This Is The Really Real World, Isn’t It?!

This Isn’t Russia, Is It?

Is This Russia?!

This Isn’t Russia.

Glad We Got That Straight.

Was Worried For A Minute…

…Or Two…

…Or The Last Two-Hours.

Or Whatever.


Maybe I Should Try Laying Down Again?

Ya Think?!

Alright, Kids.

I’m Takin’ Your Advice.

Just Don’t Wake Me Until The Sun’s Up.

Fat Chance, But I Can Hope…

  1. Reblogged this on "You Jivin' Me, Turkey?" and commented:

    Since It’s Been Such A Quiet And Lonely Evening, I’m Spent The Bulk Of It Listening To Some Of My Favorite Tunes.
    This Particular Song Is Playing Right Now, And I’d Totally Forgotten I’d Already Blogged About It.
    Do I Smell A Reblog???
    You Betcha!!!
    Hope You Enjoy, My Peeps, And I Hope It Helps If You’re Having A Quiet, Lonely Night.
    PEACE, Kiddies!
