Diamante Electrico's favourite songs

We asked Galeano, Andee and Daniel what songs were those that, when they appear in their playlists, they cannot stop listening. In addition to being composers and excellent musicians, this colombian band also has an excellent selection of their two favorite songs. From System of a Down to Spinetta, the three members of Diamante Eléctrico seem to reveal, in their essential tastes, the influences that have their own composition.

Andee Zeta

1. Jeff Buckley -What Will You Say


My heart can not take this anymore.

What will you say when you see my face?


This song was co written with Fishbone member Chris Dowd. It's part of the album Mystery White Boy, released in the 2000s.

2. System of a Down -Toxicity


When I became the sun,

I shone life into the man's hearts.


This song, released in 2001, is part of an album that bears the same name. It was the song that Andee made his first audition with, and with which, as he tells us, "everything started".

Daniel Álvarez

1. Grapevine Fires - Death Cab For Cutie


The wake up call to a rented room

Sounded like an alarm of impending doom

To warn us it's only a matter of time

Before we all burn.


It's part of the album Narrow Stairs, released in 2008. The official video of this song was nominated for Best Breakthrough Video in the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

2. Damn Sam (I Love A Woman That Rains) - Ryan Adams


As a man I've never been much to talk to.

I'm open to the door in her house that leads to her room.

And when the color goes out of my eyes she's usually too.


From the album Heartbreaker, released in 2000, this song shows in its sounds influences from artists like Bob Dylan and Nick Drake.

Juan Galeano

1. Los libros de la buena memoria - Spinetta (Invisible)


Liquor do not come back now.

Stop laughing.

No more is needed.

The tigers are already seen in the rain.


This song is part of the album The garden of the presents, that was available to the public in 1976. In its letter, we find a hand grip between Spinetta and Jorge Luis Borges, when closing the song with a verse in which some of The greatest obsessions of this writer: tigers and memory, for example.

2. Rain Song - Led Zeppelin


This is the wonder of devotion

I see the torch we all must hold.

This is the mystery of the quotient.

Upon us all, upon us all a little rain must fall.


It's curious how Galeano's two favorite songs are related to water and, more explicitly, to rain. 'Rain Song' is part of a live recording, which Led Zeppelin called The Song Remains The Same, released in 1973.

Listen to it here.


The most recent production of Diamante, La Gran Oscilación, exhibits some of the flavors of his favorite songs: the evident work in lyrics composition, the nostalgic (and oscillating, like the album title) riffs of their guitars, and the constant relationship between opposites.

Don't miss out these great songs.
