The anticipation. When you can love something as sappy as "Sweet Caroline". Then, "Sweet Caroline" was followed up by "Holly Holy".
Holly Holy Lyrics - Engelbert Humperdinck
A denouement in tempo and quality. A bombastic, over the top slow-burner that one could like, but not love.
But listen today. Listen today.

Taken out of context, removed from that revolutionary era, "Holly Holy" is a revelation. You can see the recording session. Everybody in one big room. The piano player. The bass player.
Holly Holy [Live]
The plethora of backup singers. And, in the middle, Neil himself. Oh, the tune starts with one of those guitar figures off a Glen Campbell record, laconic yet meaningful. And then they do come alive. They amp it up, they start to expend the energy in their souls. REAL strings, not the canned type. Way up in the upper register. No, not ten. That they can turn on if they want to. And finally, almost three minutes and fifty seconds into the song, a kettle drum erupts and everybody finally goes to 10, 11!
Now, back in the day, we had to stay tuned to the radio. Waiting to hear something again. Now, with the blessing of digital media, we can go straight back to the top, and play a song again. Go from slow to fast, from , all in under five minutes. AM had terrible sound. But, our car stereos were even worse. We never heard these songs the way we were supposed to, the way they were cut. Oh, we bought "Abbey Road" and component stereos.
