Jewel Box: News About ''Diamonds'' And ''Rocket Man''

Written by Chief Editor.

Diamonds was released in the fall of 2017, but still continues to sell and to chart.

 
The greatest hits package is #39 this week on the Billboard 200. In fact, it's been part of the ranking for 200 weeks now.
 
Rocket Man (I Think It's Gonna Be a Long Long Time) is one of the tracks, and it has impacted lots of listeners. Among them are Stray and the Soundtrack, better known as Shawn W. Smith and Michael Herlihy.
 
Shawn wanted to cover the tune because it ''represents the internal struggles I've faced with addiction and isolation. Things that were only amplified in 2020. Fighting these battles requires constant work, which is represented in the repeated 'I think it's gonna be a long long time.' ''
 
His bandmate, Michael, said that he wanted to ''explore depression and anxiety through the production of the song, while also giving the feeling of being adrift. The verses and choruses represent the different highs and lows that I often feel, feelings of exhaustion and isolation as well. The 'long long time' is definitely a culmination of all those feelings.''
