Neil and Glen’s Head to Head Singing of “Thank the Lord for the Nighttime.”

Hey, folks! Break-away for a moment from the dull routines and mundane of your day. Come and relax instead by revisiting this harmonious duets of Neil Diamond and Glen Campbell taken from The Good Time show in 1970. You have better watch it. An upbeat and a good relaxation song indeed!


Neil Diamonds is a New Yorker Jew while Glen Campbell is the son of an Arkansas’ sharecropper.
Neil is a classic legend for Pop Songs while Glen Campbell’s a classic legend for Country.

These two men may have less to nothing in common yet they crossed-paths for the love of music.


It is a relatable song for all hard-working guys and gals over conventional work hours. At the end of the day, you are just relieved that for a couple of hours, you are free from all the stress and pressure. In fact, this one is a good reminder for us to slow down from the rat race which we have allowed nowadays to fester us. As human beings, we are designed for a good time of rest.


Being a Jew, it is an indispensable part of their culture that they take Sabbaths – meaning quality rest.


In his anthology ‘In My Lifetime’, Diamond described this as “a Rock & Roll song with some black music influence” adding, “I’ve always been moved by Gospel music and ‘Thank the Lord for the Night Time’ is probably as close as this white Jewish kid from Brooklyn could come to being a Gospel singer.”
