Best songs with the word Diamonds in the title: selection, hits, videos and facts
"Shine On You Crazy Diamond" - one of Pink Floyd's most legendary songs. "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." - one of the Beatles' greatest hits. They are completely different - both in sound and in time epochs. But they do have something in common... And that's this "diamonds" (or diamonds).
Today we decided to make an unusual selection. It will be diverse and varied in terms of genre directions - from timeless classics to trendy sounds of the 20th century! What do these different songs have in common? Word "Diamonds." in the title. So - to your attention are presented truly musical diamonds.....
"Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds."
A song that needs no introduction. Great 60s classic performed by a truly great foursome, the charming. "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." was inspired by a childhood drawing by John Lennon's son Julian of "Lucy in the sky with diamonds". The composition was significantly different from anything The Beatles had done before. It was one of the first in the psychedelic rock genre and had a significant impact on its development. And yes: many people to this day see it as a reference to substances...
The track is still popular, and contemporary artists are eager to perform their covers of the iconic track "Lucy.". True - the Beatles version is still the coolest (in our opinion).
"Shine On You Crazy Diamond"
Another great classic on our list. "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" has become almost the pinnacle of creativity Pink Floyd! Or has it become ? The band has a lot of great tracks, and their style has improved significantly since being fired Sid Barrett (no offence to him, because we love him a lot too). But no matter how you look at it - the inner demons literally swallowed Sid, and interfered not only with his own career, but also with the career of the whole band...
However, even after they said goodbye to him, Barrett's personality and his early influences kept circling the band in the studio. Pink Floyd dedicated more than one composition to their mate, and "Shine, crazy diamond." was one of those. Everything about this track is great, and even its imposing length doesn't embarrass you one bit when listening to it. Floyd used every second of it professionally.
Have you heard of Rihanna? This Barbadian beauty remains, for an audience of millions, one of the leading favourite singers of the 20th century! She managed to rise out of poverty and build a dazzling career thanks to her talent, looks and enormous charisma.
She's got a lot of hits in her repertoire, but. "Diamonds." remains one of the most lyrical and beautiful. This composition will be a balm for your ears and soul in a certain mood. And Rihanna's voice proves once again that when she reached Olympus, she began to shine like a diamond... We hope that her shine will not fade.
"Diamonds Are Forever"
"Diamonds Are Forever" - a well-known song from the '70s that won the hearts of millions, performed by the enchanting Shirley Bassey. The composition became so widely famous due to the fact that it was performed in the a James Bond film.
The famous theme song has become legendary because of the ironic comparison of diamonds with their less reliable counterpart:
"Men are mere mortals not worth going to the grave for."
The opening track from Lady Gaga's 2016 album "Joanne." assures, "I may not be flawless, but you know I have a diamond heart." That's all you need in this world, according to Gaga.
Interesting fact: Gaga dedicated the record, or rather the title of the record, to her to the late Aunt Joannewho died at the age of 19 due to complications from lupus. The album features some of the diva's most tender songs, and as a whole shows how much the "Bad Romance" singer has matured.
"Diamonds And Pearls"
True fans Prinsa can't stop enjoying this iconic song about diamonds and their "less" shiny counterparts from the 1991 album of the same name.
"Now tell me, what will you do if I give you diamonds and pearls?
Will you be a happy boy or girl?
If I could, I'd give you the world.....
But all I can do is just offer you my love."
This song, featured in the 2007 documentary film "White Diamond: a personal portrait of Kylie Minogue".is dedicated to Kylie's battle with cancer. The Australian icon compares herself to a white diamond that remains strong and shiny even in harsh conditions.
We can only be happy for the singer, for the fact that she managed to surpass adversity.
