Neil Diamond confessed to the Associated Press that the inspiration for "Sweet Caroline" was Caroline Kennedy.
He said he was a young, broke musician when a photo of young Caroline struck his eyes. Ewww, pedo! I'm joking.
Neil said, "It was a No. 1 record and probably is the biggest, most important song of my career, and I have to thank her for the inspiration. I'm happy to have gotten it off my chest and to have expressed it to Caroline. I thought she might be embarrassed, but she seemed to be struck by it and really, really happy."
Thank you Caroline Kennedy for uniting drunken Bostonians for years!
Sweeeeeet Caroline! Good times…shit now I'm going to have that crap stuck in my head all day and night.
