FOREVER IN BLUE JEANS
FOREVER IN BLUE JEANS – An American classic that tells us money isn’t everything. It’s the simpler things in life that matter.
“Forever in Blue Jeans” is a song by Neil Diamond which was co-written with his guitarist Richard Bennett. This up-tempo track, released as a single by Columbia in February 1979, was taken from the previous year’s Neil Diamond album You Don’t Bring Me Flowers. Neil Diamond said about the song: “the simple things are really the important things”.
The song officially peaked at #20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #2 on the Easy Listening chart in March, 1979.
According to Cotton Incorporated “Neil Diamond might have been right when he named his 1979 #1 hit “Forever in Blue Jeans”: 81% of women are planning their next jeans purchase to be some shade of blue.”
song has been used to promote the sale of blue jeans, most notably Will Ferrell, impersonating Neil Diamond singing, for The Gap.
Coincidentally, Diamond himself did radio adverts for H.I.S. brand jeans in the 1960s, more than a decade before he sang this song.
