1979: Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand are at #1 on the U.S. singles chart with a painful ballad of love gone cold, You Don’t Bring Me Flowers. A radio station engineer splices Neil’s version with Barbra’s version and gets such good response, the station adds it to their play list. When Neil Diamond is told about it, he decides to re-record the song with Streisand herself, and within weeks of its release, the single is #1 in the U.S. and #5 in the U.K. Have you been through the deadly complacency described in this song? Is there any cure? I mean, other than just moving on?
