Blue Destiny

Album: In My Lifetime (1958)
  • One of Diamond's first songs, this is a vaguely haunting tune written from the perspective of a man who has been romantically wronged and is trying to figure out his place in this world. In the liner notes to In My Lifetime, Diamond wrote: "This was the first song that had an emotional effect on me. It had a uniqueness and an honesty that made me feel as though I could be a real writer at some point."
