Why is Sweet Caroline the theme song for Boston or the Red Sox?
Bostonian's have been singing it since last week's horrible actions.
The song "Sweet Caroline" is the theme song for Boston because it shows solidarity with the city. The song was Sung as a tribute to Caroline Kennedy the daughter of the late President John .F. Kennedy.
It began as just a song they played over the intercom as sort of an intermission. But it quickly became an institution among the faithful rabid Fenway fans. The song does have a sort of a tie to Massachusetts. Neil Diamond was apparently inspired to write the song after seeing a picture of young Caroline Kennedy. http://askville.amazon.com/Red-Sox-fans-sing-Sweet-Caroline-Fenway-7th-inning-stretch/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=5244637
