Diamond reveals "Sweet Caroline" inpiration

and the answer to this great mystery is…


Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg

Here’s a link to the article… and sorry in advance for the earworm.

Ok, Carly Simon… we’re waiting…

That’s perfect for Red Sox Nation.

The lyrics always struck me as more indicative of a “mature relationship.”

Warm, touchin warm

I’m sure there’s a good explanation for that…

In other news, Marilyn Monroe was the inspiration for “Candle in the Wind.”

Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, I’ll bet you think this song is about you. Don’t you? Don’t you?

I was going to say, Caroline was born in November 1957, the song came out in 1972, so she’d be 14 or 15. Well, I guess he was a musician, and those were the 70’s…

Heartlight was about E.T.

Wiki says

But her 50th birthday won’t be for another seven days…what gives?

“Sweet Caroline” came out in 1969, so Caroline Kennedy was just 12. Which makes it even creepier. I’ll never listen to the song in quite the same way again.

“Girl, you’ll be a woman soon”

She’s standing next to her pony? Her hand is warm, the pony is warm?

She probably just had the party early.

And just what would cause someone to grow up with such a sense of entitlement? What did something really, really bad happen when she was little to make her think that now she can just have her birthday parties wheneverthehell she likes?


Dude, “sorry” doesn’t quite pay the freight.

“Oh Clair”

CMC +fnord!

Might it be this picture? There are a few around of her with horses, but none in her riding gear. This is taken in 1962, when she was just 5.

He should have written a song about the Kennedy who got a lobotomy because she was a lesbian.

Maybe he could have worked E.T. into that one, too.
