So Pulp Fiction's on cable a while back. And the part where Mrs. Mia Wallace is dancing to Urge Overkill's "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon" gave us a hankering for the original Neil Diamond version. And you know what? It's pretty good too. In fact, like a gateway drug, it led us to Diamond's "I'm a Believer" (turns out, the Monkees didn't write a lot of their songs) and "Cracklin' Rose" -- for our money, one of the great songs about drinking. And for the record, when we got to "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," we were not all sniffling and teary. We had something in our eye. So if those sound good, you can hear all you favorite Diamond hits from Super Diamond, one of the country's top touring tributes to the man with the shiny shirts.
