Great song powerful entertainer. Saw him in concert. One of the best shows I have ever seen.

If it was a woman I liked enough I would choose being in her life over being a solitary man. I wouldn't get all bent out of shape if she "played games behind me". Still like the song though.

songs with real meaning are back there with Neil's style and some of the others like Gordon Lightfoot and all those greats from the 60s and early 70s!!

solitary man, along with, i am i said, and abraham martin and john, earn him a place in my own private pantheon of the greats and near greats. to me he's at the lower end of the near great. you know, we are not talking about bob dylan or the other neil (i won't insult you by asking you to guess who that might be) in this conversation .

The trombones are awesome on this. Those horns sound great.

it's funny, I was too young to know the Neil Diamond version and the 1st time i heard this song it was Johnny Cash, saw that Neil Diamond had written it, went and listened to the original and now enjoy them both

My favorite Neil Diamond song and the one that turned me onto him when I was a kid. Neil rocked it out when he was young!!

Ever since I was a young lad I have always loved the great Brass work in this tune! Ah, the memories of years gone by...

This is, and always has been Neil Diamond's song. And he does an excellent job of singing it!

jpjacobs25 - you're kidding, right? JC might have done a cover of this, but "Solitary Man" was written, originally recorded and made famous by the incomparable Mr. Diamond. Neil also wrote, "I Walk the Line." Simmer down, I'm just kidding about that one.

Okay, this is a Johnny Cash song, and this is a horrible corruption of a good thing. You, Mr. Diamond, are heartless.

One of Neil's favorite tunes. Classic stuff!
