Precious stones

Songs that mention precious stones.
What’s precious is up to you...

Image is by Erte. Topaz.

Pablo Neruda.

English translation from 100 Love Sonnets, 1960 although it says: «There are various translations and none of them is entirely satisfactory.»

rubies, sapphires, emeralds, diamonds, jasper, chrysolite, topaz, amethyst, and a dash of precious metals - love is a shimmering light!

Ruby, amethyst, diamond, emerald.

Как этот тонко огранённый,
Темно-зелёный изумруд.
About emerald eyes.


New cities by the sea
Skyscrapers are winking
Some hills are never seen

Topaz and amber.

“The earth is still our home”

Bear’s den.

The storms raging through my mind...
Are you there at all?
Won't you break my fall?

Traduções:  Grego

Sisters of mercy.

Find another place where the red turns green
Where the emerald glistens through the darkness again
Where the emerald glistens through the rain rain rain
And I'm happy here in the rain

Please submit any entry that’s meaningful to you - not just because it contains the keywords.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 02:19

[@lt] I posted 21 entries so far in this collection, but edit shows 3 and adding new entry shows 4. Please look into it.
Last entry was Rihanna’s song that I moved up.
Thanks in advance.

kyucatkyucat    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 02:19

I can see all 21 fine though :O Maybe a bug on your end?

kyucatkyucat    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 02:22

Oh, I misread your message. I hope it gets fixed soon! ^^ And that you feel better soon, as well)

ltlt    Quinta-feira, 05/03/2020 - 20:39

[@BlackSea4ever] Is your question still valid? As of now, we see 73 in both edit and view modes.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 16:47

Knew it...
Shine on you crazy diamond...
Come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine!

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 16:53

Nadia! Missed you!
Not in English translation, but in French: Je ne souhaite pas des diment perle
Will you translate it into Russian?

My collections are Usually woefully short of anything not Russian/English.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 17:05

Tried it. Video not working. Plus, I heard this song by William Shatner, of star trek fame, and can’t stand it ever since

vevvevvevvev    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 17:08

Предложение снимается.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 17:13

И вообще, она Вся такая-растакая.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 17:27

Men grow cold as girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 17:55

I know it has the right word, but I don’t understand its use. Song is already at LT.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 18:06

Thanks. I really liked Enya’s song and completely forgot the turquoise!

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 18:40

Lol. Not without the gems. I’m losing it - can’t find some song playing in my head.

kyucatkyucat    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 18:54

Oh no :^( Hope it comes to you soon...I'll try and see if I can find any good gemstone songs after I wake up

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 19:52

Could you fix both entries’ videos - the type there doesn’t show in the collection

Zarina01Zarina01    Domingo, 16/02/2020 - 19:58

I can't for pearls because unfortunately that song isn't available on youtube

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Segunda-feira, 17/02/2020 - 15:10

#2 became my top entry - many thanks!
#1 video doesn’t work. And although I adore the ´´mother of pearl´´, I really dislike the ‘’music’’ - sorry?

malucamaluca    Segunda-feira, 17/02/2020 - 22:02

Strange, here in my country the video works... Maybe a regional thing.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Segunda-feira, 17/02/2020 - 15:27

Me love Sting, but it’s about the cards. I’ll take any excuse to listen to Sting. Lol

vevvevvevvev    Segunda-feira, 17/02/2020 - 15:24

"I know that diamonds mean money for this art"

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Segunda-feira, 17/02/2020 - 15:25

Do you like my top entry in this collection?

vevvevvevvev    Segunda-feira, 17/02/2020 - 15:33

Мне нравиться все, что Вы делаете, Диана!

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Segunda-feira, 17/02/2020 - 16:14

Ah, here we go...noise. Headache. Can’t tell one word. I say we use lyrics and you play the guitar?

vevvevvevvev    Segunda-feira, 17/02/2020 - 16:22

Простите, простите... Я иногда люблю металл послушать...

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Segunda-feira, 17/02/2020 - 16:39

I was just was reminded the other day that not everything is about what I like. Can’t say I agree. But, in contrition, I did add Lucy in the Sky (for you and brat), and Amethyst (Nadia). I will add this one if you really do like it, put the link back, please.

vevvevvevvev    Segunda-feira, 17/02/2020 - 16:54

Нет, нет, никакой особой симпатии к этой песне у меня нет.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Segunda-feira, 17/02/2020 - 18:20

Long ago, my father bought me a gorgeous huge amethyst. An idiot that I am, I left it at a jeweler to design a setting and never picked it up... this reminded it me of yet another failure, but remembrance is there... thank you.

FlopsiFlopsi    Domingo, 23/02/2020 - 11:44

This is so sad, but let me tell you - you're not alone - you're just an idiot like me.

Zarina01Zarina01    Sexta-feira, 28/02/2020 - 20:52

I'm sorry to hear that ☹ and actually that song was based off of a poem by Emily Dickinson

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Terça-feira, 18/02/2020 - 22:31

Woefully short of sapphires! Lol. Thank you. And sound is very pleasant.

PääsukePääsuke    Quarta-feira, 19/02/2020 - 16:06

The first one is called "Blue sapphire".

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Quinta-feira, 05/03/2020 - 20:42

[@lt] I know you are quite busy now so this is totally not urgent, but I noticed a bug where song doesn’t show that it was added to a collection - this causes multiple requests to add it when in reality, it was done. No rush. Thanks.

This issue is still here

osiris71osiris71    Quinta-feira, 05/03/2020 - 19:15

And what about Modern Talking and Chris Norman? Not good enough for you? "Some Hearts Are Diamonds" is a great ballad, in my opinion. I'm a little disappointed, but it's OK. Your choice.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Quinta-feira, 05/03/2020 - 19:16

No, I’m falling behind. I love all these.
