For My Sunday Song and for the next 10 songs, we are celebrating the songs of Kiss!! Sorry, not my favorites.. This one was on the seedy side of it at least. It is about street hookers and the queen of them all, the Black Diamond. Lyrically there is not much there, but musically…Damn!!
It's sooo obvious what a Black Diamond is, I'm surprised the guy above missed it by so much. OK, imagine what a girl looks like naked. Look to her pubic area. What shape is it? With the dark hair most women have, it's diamond-shaped. So now you know. I think also the term refers to an older wiser Afro American prostitite used as a " sage" for younger more niave pros'.
