The Radiohead Covers Vol. 8

To promote his appearance as the mentor on American Idol this week, Neil Diamond dropped by to sing his version of Radiohead's Fake Plastic Trees:

He also asked me to imagine the world of Lionel Diamond, where the songs of Neil Diamond and Lionel Ritchie combine to give us such memorable hits as:

Hello Hello Again
Say You Say Me I Am I Said
Ballerina Girl You'll Be a Woman Soon
Red Red Wine All Night Long
Stuck On You Got To Me
Do It To Me Sweet Caroline
Endless Love On the Rocks
Sail On Solitary Man
I Got the Feelin' Dancing On the Ceiling
Song Sung Blue Just To Be Close To You
I'm a Believer Running With the Night
Cracklin' Rosie Three Times a Lady

I said "Sounds like a world I want to live in, Neil Diamond!" And then David Cook sang Sweet Caroline and the world was at peace.

The End

Well that was good, if not quite as perfect as Will Ferrell's impression.

I love "Say You Say Me I Am I Said."

Well mine would be better if I was also singing an actual Neil Diamond song and had better sound equipment than a wireless phone connection...

You can read more about the backstory of my Lionel Diamond creation in my blog (an approved time waster link).

Eddie Vedder next week.
