G is for “gem”! There are loads of musical gems out there. There are also any number of songs/bands that fit this theme. Find five of your own and link back to this post! We’ll cross-promote. It’ll be fun! Tell me when you write a post, either in the comments and/or by visiting our community Facebook page!
I don’t know if pearls are, scientifically speaking, categorized as gems. Still, the first band that came to mind when this theme began to flit through my head certainly is, though — a gem, that is. I love Pearl Jam. And Eddie Vedder? I think he just improves with age. I chose Jeremy because that’s the song that made me a Pearl Jam fan.
Get your grunge on, baby!
From grunge to vintage — nothing says vintage like Mick Jagger and his band of merry men. The Rolling Stones hit Ruby Tuesday is a real gem.
Speaking of vintage, no “gem” theme would be complete without the inclusion of Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds. (The Beatles version!) Yeah.
As I allowed a pearl to be considered a gem, I’m going to apply the same logic to the oyster. In that vein, I give you Don’t Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult. Love this one!
Gold is not a gem. I know. It’s a precious metal. Still, it’s a “G” and, well, I’ve heard this song several times in the past month and considering that it’s highly likely that I haven’t heard it this much since it debuted in the 70s, I’ll took it as a sign — a sign that it was begging to be included on the list this week. Here’s America and Sister Golden Hair.
