The influence of music in our daily lives

We have all heard throughout our lives songs that talk about love, friendship, society, politics and so forth… have you ever paid attention to and loved a song about diamonds?

Overall, we all love one or more different types of music. Music is part of our culture, it moves us, it can remind us of people or places or can simply be used to pass time.

It has been scientifically proven that music has a direct influence on our mood and more generally on our health too, there are even highly recommended music therapies that exists to improve mood and restore energy.

The idea sounds interesting and curious enough. We do not know the answer to this question, but we are happy to share with you a list of top 5 songs about diamonds that have made history.
