Stargazing: DIAMONDS - Ilaria Graziano

December 2014's coming to an end, folks. I can't believe how fast it flies by every year, but this just signifies the little amount of time we truly have to cherish and value. Hopefully today's beautiful song helps you take off any pressure you might have before the New Year.

'DIAMONDS' was an extra inclusion in the 'Best of' CD for Cowboy Bebop. As far as I know, it is not featured in any bits of the animation. However, with the hauntingly powerful piano accompanied by such a majestic voice, I truly wish it had been. Cowboy Bebop was always known for its attachments to classical and jazz music, and this piece just fits right in.
