Play Me – SOLD

 In Abstracts, Red's Art, Sold

“You are the sun, I am the moon, / You are the words, I am the tune, / Play me,”

I so love listening to Neil Diamond’s songs whether his older music or latest works. “Play Me” by Neil Diamond is definitely a favorite of mine.

“Play Me” is a 1972 song by Neil Diamond from his album Moods. The song, the first single from Moods, was recorded in February 1972 in Los Angeles. It was released as a single in May 1972 and peaked at #11 in the United States in September of that year. It was listed by Billboard as #27 of his best 30 songs. The “catchy pop-rock” song, a medium-tempo waltz, features broken chords played on the acoustic guitar, courtesy of Diamond’s long-time collaborator Richard Bennett who toured with him for 17 years. The lyrics are listed below if you want to acquaint or reacquaint yourself with them.

The chorus, listed above, celebrates how people complement each other to complete each other. This painting titled “Play Me” is also a tribute to how music compliments my artwork. I think music and art are an irresistible bind that brings forth in me a creative and spiritual connection with my work. Music is my words, and my painting becomes the tune.

Play Me Lyrics

She was morning, and I was night time
I one day woke up
To find her lying beside my bed
I softly said “Come take me”
For I’ve been lonely in need of someone
As though I’d done someone wrong somewhere
But I don’t know where, I don’t know where
Come lately

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me

Song she sang to me
Song she brang to me
Words that rang in me
Rhyme that sprang from me
Warmed the night, and what was right
Became me

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me

And so it was that I came to travel
Upon a road that was thorned and narrow
Another place, another grace
Would save me

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me
You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me……

Do you listen to any Neil Diamond music; and do you have a favorite?

Dare to Feel,
