A Beautiful Dirrrty Noise

Never Before Aired: Neil Diamond and Christina Aguilera

In this previously “lost” SNL skit, courtesy of Will Ferrell’s not-so-secret or indie viral site Funny or Die, an imagined pairing between Xtina and Neil reveals the elder statesman a fair less reliable working partner than you might imagine. I like the idea of Diamond refashioned as a hard-living sociopathic drifter, and when you clock him on the baffling cover for Hot August Night above, making love to an invisible saxophone, you can almost buy it.

More Ferrell as Diamond here.

On a side note, as much as it makes me feel uncomfortable to refer to Henry Winkler twice in one week, on Diamond’s live album Love at the Greek, the Fonz duetted on “Song Sung Blue.” I’d love/fear hearing that.
