In 1964, Gilbert Bécaud recorded Nathalie. This was a French song about a guide who lead Gilbert through Moskow. The song was especially a hit in France. Bécaud did more than just singing, he for example also co-wrote Love On The Rocks (sung by Neil Diamond in the Jazz Singer). Enjoy

Song of the day: Neil Diamond- Sweet Caroline

Actually just an awesome sixties classic. Simple, some nice people blowing horns, and a good text about the daughter of John F. Kennedy, Caroline, who was eleven years at the time. The nice thing is that the inspiration already started five years before the song appeared, but that the song just came together at that time. So in 1969 the song was published and it became a big hit. And now it’s a song of the day! Enjoy
