Songs with diamonds in the title

Posted on Dec 9, 2011 by Liza
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
* Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - the Beatles

But how about...

* Shine on you Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd
* Diamonds on the Inside - Ben Harper
* Diamonds - Ben Howard
* Diamonds and Rust - Joan Baez
* Diamond Dogs - David Bowie
* Black Diamond Bay - Bob Dylan
* Diamonds on my Windshield - Tom Waits
* Diamond Ring - Bon Jovi

(...this last list was courtesy of the office musos, and did take a good hour to come up with!)

And what about songs with other precious gem stones in the title?

* Ruby Tuesday - The Rolling Stones
* Ruby - Kaiser Chiefs
* Silicon on Sapphire - The Clash
* Emerald - Thin Lizzy
* Diamonds and Pearls - Prince

Lastly, songs with precious metals in the title:

* Snoop Dogg - Platinum
* Spandau Ballet - Gold
* Kanye West - Gold Digger
* Echo and the Bunnymen - Silver
* Simple Minds - New Gold Dream
* David Guetta - Titanium
* Shirley Bassett - Goldfinger
* David Soul - Silver Lady
* Platinum Blonde - Blondie
