Neil Diamond: Beautiful Noise



Neil Diamond performs "Beautiful Noise" at New York City's Madison Square Garden in 2008. You can also listen to a much younger Neil Diamond here, performing from 30 years earlier, in 1976, wearing a yellow jump suit and bell bottoms.

*******************



Beautiful Noise:  The album was released on July 4, 1976, the  day that Americans celebrate Independence Day; it also marked the bicentennial of the nation's birth and Declaration of Independence. 'Beautiful Noise" is the sound of democracy.

Beautiful Noise
by Neil Diamond

What a beautiful noise
Comin' up from the street
Got a beautiful sound
It's got a beautiful beat

It's a beautiful noise
Goin' on everywhere
Like the clickety-clack
Of a train on a track
It's got a rhytm to spare

It's a beautiful noise
And it's a sound that I love
And it fits me as well
As a hand in a glove
Yes it does, yes it does

What a beautiful noise
Comin' up from the park
It's the song of this kids
And it plays until dark

It's the song of the cars
On their furious flights
But there's even romance
In the way that they dance
To the beat of the lights

It's a beautiful noise
And it's a sound that I love
And it's makes me feel good
Like a hand in a glove
Yes it does, yes it does
What a beautiful noise
