The songs he has written:

Some Days Are Diamonds (Some Days Are Stone)

This beautiful tune was created by Dick Feller in fifteen minutes on the piano, an instrument he doesn't even play (according to himself!).

The song was first released by Dick Feller himself, on his 1975 album with the same title. Some years later Bobby Bare made a nice cover version of it, and in 1981 John Denver made a huge hit with the same song. Denver’s recording of it has played over 1,000,000 times in broadcast play in the USA alone. The song appears on a large number of John Denver compilations.

Country singer Jonny Hill later recorded a German version of "Some Days Are Diamonds". In Germany the song was entitled "Mal bist du traurig, mal bist du froh". German lyric was written by Fred Fonda and Peter Greif. Finnish group Freud Marx Engels & Jung recorded a version called "Jotkut päivät on kultaa". The Finnish lyricist's name is Pekka Myllykoski. Also Swedish country singer Alf Robertson wrote a version in his own language, "Vindarna växlar".

During the years, many friends have told Feller how the lyric to this song has helped them through their own "Stone" days.

Lyric:
When you ask how I've been here without you
I like to say I've been fine and I do
But we both know the truth is hard to come by
And if I told the truth that's not quite true

Chorus:
Some days are diamonds - some days are stone
Some time the hard times won't leave you alone
Some times the cold wind blows a chill in my bones
Some days are diamonds - some days are stone

Now the face that I see in my mirror
More and more is a stranger to me
More and more I can see there's a danger
In becoming what I never thought I'd be

Chorus
