lol, No Doubt sings the second. I know that cause they constantly play it on the radio and I can't stand it.

Who sang, "This Diamond Ring, it don't shine for me anymore...."? More importantly, who wrote it?

I assume they wrote it too, but maybe not. I'll look it up on the internet... I just happen to have a computer right here in front of me.

Who wrote it? Al Kooper, Irwin Levine, and Bob Brass... in 1965. You, too, can look up many amazing tidbits of information on the internet.

I just found this thread! The only one that came to me immediately was # 29 Feel's Like The First Time. Of course that's only because I'm a huge Foreigner fan and Lou is a good friend of my family's! (ok so I'm getting old! What can I say? :lol: )

Thanks, Palmer. :) I was wondering cause I really love that song and then I was reading something and it said that Al Kooper wrote it, but whenever I asked anyone about it they mentioned the group, so I was confused. And of course this is the one thing I didn't google... :) Thanks.
