Song Description

Upbeat pop ballad originally written for a specific project to celebrate (Sir) Cliff Richard's Diamond Jubilee in showbiz. Not used on that occasion and now generic for any event, person or product

Story Behind the Song

I'm a member of the The Guild Of International Songwriters and Composers and they contacted me out of the blue in March 2018 asking: "We wondered if you would be interested in having your name put forward for a very special songwriting opportunity? We have been approached by the President of a famous artists' fan club who wants to have a special tribute song written. We can provide more information if you are interested but it is all very hush hush at the moment. All will be revealed if you're interested - we're only asking a small select number of members who we know are outstanding writers. Please let me know if you're interested - thank you. " This started a process whereby I and two other songwriters wrote and submitted songs for the Diamond Jubilee concert of Sir Cliff Richard (The UKs longest running pop star?)to be presented at the Royal Albert Hall, London on 14th October this year! It's a very long and fantastic story but although those selecting the songs said the most fabulous things about all three, and I got to within touching distance of the eventual winner - I didn't get it. But what an amazing experience writing specifically to order for such a special occasion. It was an honour being asked to submit!

Lyrics

LIKE A DIAMOND
Words and Music by Bob Bentley
© March 2018

Verse 1. Do you recall when you came aware
There was a power, a star out there
Long set, on a single course
A talent rare, a special force

Verse 2. But when it started we couldn't know
The heights this rockin' boy would go
The voice that moved us, made us proud
Would have us sing his songs out loud

Chorus 1. Like a Diamond, you have always shone
Like a Diamond, that special light
Like a Diamond, forever strong
We'll all be diamonds tonight

Bridge In all the things you say and do
Love and goodness just shine through
We've no regrets, and if there's tears
It's joy for all these diamond years

Chorus 2. Like a Diamond, you have always shone
Like a Diamond, that special light
Like a Diamond, forever strong
We'll all be diamonds tonight

Verse 3. The world has rocked you with it's blows
We've shared your highs, we've felt you lows
But nothing can attack our pride
Make no mistake, we're by your side

Verse 4. So this is just another time
One more chance to see you shine
The mic, the spotlight, one more page
A diamond standing centre stage

Chorus 3. Like a Diamond, you have always shone
Like a Diamond, that special light
Like a Diamond, forever strong
We'll all be diamonds tonight

Chorus 4. Like a Diamond, you have always shone
Like a Diamond, that special light
Like a Diamond, forever strong
We'll all be diamonds for tonight

Repeats to end
