Hans’ Pick of the Day

“America” (also known as “They’re Coming To America” or “Coming To America”) is the name of a patriotic song written and originally recorded by Neil Diamond, released in 1980 as part of the The Jazz Singer soundtrack album. The song was a hit single in 1981, reaching number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100. Although the single version was a studio recording, it sounds live because of crowd overdubs in the song.

This song is very special to me, since it was 30 years ago today that I came to America! Good Job on the pick Hans!!
