On December 2nd, 1979 Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand were at No.1 on the US singles chart with their single You Don’t Bring Me Flowers.

A radio station engineer had spliced together Neil’s version with Barbra’s version and it got such a great response that the station added it to their playlist. When Neil Diamond was told about this song, he decided that he and Streisand should re-record the song together. Within weeks of being released, it soared to No.1 in the US.
