Neil Diamond's coronavirus parody of 'Sweet Caroline' is so good (so good, so good!)


In an effort to boost spirits as the coronavirus continues to cause panic, the music icon updated a classic song to comment on these surreal times.


On Saturday, Diamond debuted a new version of his 1969 hit "Sweet Caroline," with some fresh, CDC-approved lyrics.


Perched on the hearth of his fireplace next to his adorable pet pup, Diamond then launched into the familiar tune on acoustic guitar.


Last week, former teen pop sensation JoJo delivered a completely re-imagined take on her 2004 hit "Leave (Get Out)," promoting social distancing.


"Stay in, right now / Do it for humanity," the 29-year-old sang from the comfort of her home, as opposed to the real words: "Get out, right now / It's the end of you and me."


Additionally, several musicians have been livestreaming performances to provide some entertainment and raise funds for coronavirus-related causes now that live concerts and festivals worldwide have been canceled amid the outbreak.
