Song 1980-54: Neil Diamond, “September Morn”

“September Morn” was the first of Diamond’s thirteen songs to appear on the HOT 100 in the ’80s. It peaked at #17 in early 1980, but made it all the way to #2 on the adult contemporary (soft rock) chart that same year. The B-side of the single was a cover of The Monkees’ 1966 #1 smash “I’m a Believer” which, by chance, Mr. Diamond wrote himself.

The song ended up the #90 song for the entire year.

Memorable lyric: “And look how far we’ve come: so far from where we used to be but not so far that we’ve forgotten how it was before.”
