The Influence of Music In Our Daily Lives

Throughout our lives we have heard songs about love, friendship, society, politics and other life matters. But have you ever heard and loved a song about diamonds?

Overall, we all love either one specific type of music, or a variety of genres. Music is part of our culture: it moves us, reminds us of people or places, or we simply use it to pass time.

Scientific evidence shows that music has a direct influence on our mood and our overall health. There are even highly recommended music therapies designed to improve mood and restore energy.

In marketing, music is used, to an extent, to influence you to purchase an item. So could a song about an engagement ring or diamonds lead you to buy a diamond ring? The idea sounds interesting and curious enough. While we do not know the answer to this question, we are happy to share a list of top 5 songs about diamonds that made history.

5 Top Songs About Diamonds that Made History

1961 - Diamonds Are Forever by Shirley Bassey

This song was the main soundtrack for the 7th James Bond film with the same title. It is actually Shirley Basset’s second Bond theme performance after the famous Goldfinger.

1967 - Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds by the Beatles

John Lennon once said this song was inspired by a drawing his four-year-old son made at school. John’s son drew a picture of a classmate named Lucy, and said to his father that it was “Lucy in the sky with diamonds”.

1975 - Shine On You Crazy Diamond by Pink Floyd

While ‘diamond’ is in the title, this song is not  actually about diamonds at all, but it is one of the most epic rock songs ever by Pink Floyd.

1991 - Diamonds and Pearls by Prince

Diamonds and Pearls was the third song on Prince’s 9th album that carries the same name. It marks the debut of the New Power Generation formation that accompanied Prince from 1990.

2012 - Diamonds by Rhianna

A modern track by a modern artist, Rihanna. For weeks this single was number 1 in the charts in several countries. In the US, thanks to a criteria change by the Billboard music charts, Diamonds jumped from #66 to #1 on the chart.
