Neil Diamond fantasized about Caroline Kennedy

American badass, Neil Diamond, announced that he wrote the song, Sweet Caroline, for JFK’s tween daughter, Caroline. Little Caroline was 12 when Neil wrote the song. According to,

“Diamond performed the 1969 track live via satellite at Caroline Kennedy’s 50th birthday party last week, and gave the hostess a magical gift – revealing she was his muse for the song.
He explained how she had inspired him, as a girl, after he saw a picture of her riding a pony.
Diamond says: “I’ve never discussed it with anybody before – intentionally. I thought maybe I would tell it to Caroline when I met her someday.
“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.”

I just puked in my mouth. Let’s not forget some of the lyrics to this now creepy song,

“Hands, touching hands, reaching out
Touching me, touching you
Oh, sweet Caroline…
…And now I, I look at the night, whooo
And it don’t seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two…”

It was touching when Elton John wrote a tribute song about Marylin Monroe. This is a different kind of touching…shame on you Mr Diamond.
But speaking of Marylin Monroe and the Kennedy’s, here’s a little peek into the past of what could have been:
