Musical Interlude: America (1981)

From the remake of "The Jazz Singer" comes this instant classic from Neil Diamond that has become as much a patriotic anthem as, say, "The Star Spangled Banner".

Personal note: A local lounge lizard sings this during the Flag Day parade every year, but he lacks Diamond's charismatic presence. This guy gets the gig every year anyway because he's related to a well known politician from my district, and no one has come along that could knock "America" out of the park better----unless the city could pull off a miracle and bring Diamond himself in for the 1-shot. That would rule, of course, but it would take a lot of cheddar for that to happen.
