Forever in Blue Jeans works for this child. grew up in them. One of my top fav tunes from Neil.Jennifur Sun - Ramona
A great tune but some of the lyrics are a bit lame, like the whole money bit. But the image of laying down beside your girl, wearing her tight, worn old jeans, is a great one.Steve - Ottawa
Neil Diamond is a master of showmanship and he truly knows how to play to his audience and work the crowd. I have seen him in concert three times, and in the first two, this was the song he would use to get the most audience participation going. Not my favorite of his songs, but I do like it, and I associate this one with his concerts more than any other.Susan - Atlanta, Georgia
Here's some obscure trivia:
On May 20th 1873, Levi Strauss began marketing denim work pants that featured copper rivets (later they became known as blue jeans)...
And a little under 106 years later on January 21st, 1979 Neil Diamond's "Forever in Blue Jeans" entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #66; eight weeks later on March 18th, 1979 it would peak at #20 {for 1 week} and it stayed on the chart for 11 weeks...
On February 11th, 1979 it reached #2 {for 2 weeks} on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart; the two weeks it was at #2, the #1 record for those two weeks was "I Just Fall in Love Again" by Anne Murray.

I always thought this song was kind of weird, at least coming from a male singer. You hear about women sacrificing money for love, but usually men do not make that sacrifice.Beth - San Francisco, Ca
