Sales for Neil Diamond's “Sweet Caroline” are up by 597 percent a week after the tune has become a source of comfort following bombings in Boston last week. The song is a staple of Boston Red Sox games. Nielsen SoundScan said Wednesday that it sold 19,000 tracks this week. It only sold 2,800 the week before. It has sold 1.75 million tracks to date. Diamond released the song in 1969. It is addressed to Caroline Kennedy. (AP Photo/Michael Dwyer, file)
