Songs with diamonds in the title

Sometimes, when I am on hold or in a queue for the supermarket, I like to think of as many songs as I can on a theme. For example, songs mentioning days of the week, songs about people called Sally, songs that name check other bands. This afternoon, we rewarded ourselves for a week of hard work by coming up with a list of songs with diamonds in them. Which lead to a list of songs with gold in them…and so on. Enjoy!

Ok, so let’s start with the obvious…

* Diamonds are Forever
* A Diamond is a Girl’s Best Friend
* Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes – Paul Simon

* Diamonds – Ben Howard
* Diamonds and Rust – Joan Baez
* Diamond Dogs – David Bowie
