"Be Mine Tonight" by Neil Diamond

Song#:  1040
Date:  05/22/1982
Debut:  73
Peak:  35
Weeks:  11
Genre:  Pop, Adult Contemporary

Pop Bits:  Diamond would chalk up another Top 40 entry with this third single from his "On the Way to the Sky" album. Although it wouldn't be a significant pop hit, the song would reach #2 on the AC chart.

ReduxReview:  I didn't care for any of the singles from this album. I just remember how out-dated the songs seemed for the time. Years later, I can listen to them differently, but I'm still not a fan of the tunes. This one was the best of the bunch and about the only song on the album worthy of a repeat listen. It's still not quality Diamond, but its sound harkens back to his classic period.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  Diamond attended New York University via a fencing scholarship. Sabre was his area of focus for the sport and he was a member of the 1960 NYU team that went on to win that year's NCAA Championship.
