To celebrate the month of April, we’ve put together some groove-worthy tunes revolving around the sparkliest of sparkle: the diamond. Sit back, plug in, and enjoy the beats!

 

The Beatles, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
Why we love it:
The story behind this song is unbeatable. John Lennon’s son, Julian, came home one day with a picture of a girl from school, named Lucy. He had drawn some stars in the sky and called it “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” Kids, eh?
Best lyric:
Let’s be honest. This entire song is amazing.

Paul Simon, Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes
Why we love it:
One of Paul Simon’s greatest hits, this song is impossible not to sing along to. At the end of the day, though, there’s no hidden meaning. It’s just about a rich girl in NY and her many suitors.
Best lyric:
People say she’s crazy
She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes

Sometimes it’s the inside that shines. We love this song because it sends a positive message about people that are genuine and kind.

When you have everything,
You have everything to lose.
She made herself
A bed of nails
And shes plannin’ on puttin’ it to use.

Cos she had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
Diamonds

Marilyn Monroe, Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend
Why we love it:
Every women’s anthem for jewelry, Marilyn Monroe perfectly captures the true meaning of “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. In a quirky and fun way, that only Marilyn can convey, she lets us know that diamonds are reliable and they’ll always be around to make us sparkle.
Best lyric:
But square-cut or pear-shaped,
These rocks don’t lose their shape.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

Diamonds never lie to me,
For when love’s gone,
They’ll lustre on.
