See this ad numerous times a day on TV and now cant get the stupid song out of my head. And it keeps reminding me of that 90’s sitcom Caroline In The City where she endorses a cereal company making a cereal in the shape of the female anatomy. That woman in the ad even looks similar to her 20 years later.

I could live without hearing that song for a long, long time. Seriously it's overplayed!

It ran twice during a single commercial break on last night's football game.

Diamond wrote this song about Caroline Kennedy, who was 11 at the time.  Kinda pervy.  Maybe he told her Girl, You'll be a Woman Soon, plied her with some Cracklin' Rosie, gave her his Longfellow Serenade, and broke her Cherry, Cherry.  He was just tired of being a Solitary Man.

Urban legend.

Quote Neil Diamond reveals story behind 'Sweet Caroline' (link)

It was a great story.

For years the lore has been that Neil Diamond's 1969 song "Sweet Caroline" was an ode to the then young daughter of late president John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline.

On Monday, the singer revealed the truth behind the hit.

"I was writing a song in Memphis, Tennessee, for a session. I needed a three-syllable name," Diamond said during an appearance on "Today." "The song was about my wife at the time — her name was Marsha — and I couldn't get a 'Marsha' rhyme."

^  Yeah, that's what he said in 2014.  But in 2007, he said...
 
...he was a “young, broke songwriter” in the ‘60s when he saw a cute photo of Caroline Kennedy in a magazine. “It was a picture of a little girl dressed to the nines in her riding gear, next to her pony,” he recalled. “It was such an innocent, wonderful picture, I immediately felt there was a song in there.”
 
 
So it seems someone lied.  It was either Neil Diamond or Neil Diamond.

I dunno.

You read the lyrics and it sounds like he's writing about someone he's intimately familiar and has a history with.

Like a wife.

He probably told the Kennedy story because it sounded more interesting than because he needed a three syllable name.

The truth is, a lot of songs get written that way. Merely the practical need to fit a word into a space that either rhymes or has the correct number of syllables.

Takes some of the panache away.

True.  Maybe You're So Vain is really about no one in particular.  That'd be funny.

I think that one is actually about who she's always said it was.

McCartney says the working title to Yesterday was "Scrambled Eggs".

Who?  To this day, she says it's about three different guys, only one of whom she's named (Warren Beatty).  This, according to Wikipedia.

I had never heard that. I always assumed it was about Beatty.

But it wouldn't surprise me if it was about a composite character consisting of more than one person.

Dylan did that in songs like Positively 4th Street.

I guess it's tough to write a good song about one person without having to take some liberties. Like I was saying earlier, often it just comes down to what you can make rhyme and how many syllables you need.

Peggy Sue originally came about because a veterinarian was looking for a pig that had ran away and was calling sooie. Buddy Holly happened to be sitting on the porch with a guitar. After hearing this and started singing Piggy Sooie the vet suggested that he try Peggy Sue instead.

I HATE this song with a passion..I always thought Neil was a faux hippie schlockmeister and to hear it embraced by a set of sports stupes and then THIS AD...that idiotic add-on from the 'fans' is just torture.

Better idea for this commercial...

...both the people stop by a red light singing "Sweet Caroline" and they drive simultaneously not even looking at the traffic light and...a semi crushes them both.

And...the guy in the semi is a Yankees Fan!
