"Solitary Man" as written by and Neil Diamond....
Belinda was mine 'til the time
That I found her holdin'
Jim and lovin' him.
Then Sue came along,
Loved me strong,
That's what I thought,
But me and Sue,
That died, too.
Don't know that I will
But until I can find me,
A girl who'll stay and
Won't play games behind me.
I'll be what I am,
A solitary man,
A solitary man.
I've had it to here - being where love's a small word,
A part time thing, a paper ring.
I know it's been done
Havin' one girl who loves you,
Right or wrong,
Weak or strong.
Don't know that I will
But until I can find me,
A girl who'll stay and
Won't play games behind me.
I'll be what I am,
A solitary man,
A solitary man.

    General CommentThis is a wonderful cover of the Neil Diamond song, Solitary Man. HIM really does justice to this song, as they have with all their previous covers. The video for this song is very awesome as well. =D

    General CommentNo its not too poppy for HIM. Even if it was it still ended up sounding great.

    General CommentWell.. I don't really know how to explain it.. HIM did this song really great, they did.. But the way it was from before, it was pop. HIM are known for choosing great cover songs (like "wicked game" etc.), and this one is good too... But the lyrics are somehow so... "normal"... if you look at the other HIM songs, including their cover songs... Has anyone got any idea of what I'm talking about?

    General CommentNo. I'd say it's different because neil Diamond wrote it.

    General CommentThis Diamond encrusted song has been turned around...to HIM...It might be a little different, but still has all those really cool individual efforts at a HIM song. Congratulations.

    General CommentI think HIM did an amazing job on this cover and since these comments are supposed to state what the song is about and such I'm going to state the obvious subject - The guy has had alot of girls who cheated on him or dumped him for other guys (belinda and sue) and until he can find a girl who will love him for life and will be loyal to him hes going to be a solitary man - independant. - that pretty much sums it up I think oh yeah and HIM ROCKS! :D lol

    General CommentI love this song but the video was absolute crap compared to some of the other ones. But I'm probably just saying that because I can't stand Bam Magera!
