"Dark Side" is one of the greatest albums in the history of rock music. And the odd thing is that Pink Floyd followed it up with an album that some feel is even better -- 1975's "Wish You Were Here." In fact, PF guitarist David Gilmour and the late PF keyboardist Rick Wright b... Read More »

Includes the song "Time" with the lyric "Tired of lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch the rain."

Musically speaking, it's probably not the Floyd's greatest effort; "Wish You Were Here" might be the best contender for that title. But "Dark Side of the Moon" may be the most representative album the band ever made, and it's certainly the most well-known. Basically, this is a... Read More »

we're all getting closer and closer to our deaths, all of the time. Doesn't the song TIME capture this realization? There used to be a local restaurant franchise in San Francisco called ZIMs. The one on 19th Avenue and Tarival Street was where I met my brother one time. On the tables there were mini-jukeboxes. Fed a quarter, they'd play you three songs. One of the songs I played over and over on that occasion was COLORS. the way the guitar ( courtesy no doubt of David Gilmour) interacted in a jazzy fashion intrigued my listening ear, amidst all the change to the city that had gone on. It is important to have an intrigued listening ear. This album just might not be their best, but most certainly, it is their best-selling. On Monday evenings, from 9 to 10, local rock classic station KZOK has a THINK PINK show. 102.5 fm: check it out! actually, it's from ten to eleven. P.S. I was able, later that evening, to call in to the show, and to make a song request, and I got a dedication: "This next song is a request from Alistair on Capitol Hill." He played YOUR POSSIBLE PASTS, from THE FINAL CUT. Thrilling!!

KCLS patrons have already stated that "Dark Side of the Moon" is "awesome" "gets better every time I listen to it" and "Pink Floyds best album". I can only add that it was on Billboards top 100 album sellers for possibly longer than any other album either before or after it. "Dark Side of the Moon" made Pink Floyd into a world famous rock band. Roger Waters could even later leave the group, and still pack audiences into concert halls anywhere he played. So if you have never heard "Dark Side of the Moon", I can't think of a better album to take out from KCLS!

Hello, darlings - What could I possibly say about "Dark Side of the Moon" that hasn't already been said about a thousand times before?

Fantastic album with great songs. Lot of people don't know that if you play this album with the 40th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz you will be amazed. How in the world did this happen. I've tried it and believe me it works. It go's along with the movie. Awesome!.

Classic album, one of Pink Floyd's finest

Well, darlings - I do like this one album from Pink Floyd. It's very psychedelic.

(*Lyrics excerpt*) - "All you touch.... And all you see.... Is all your life will ever be."

And now, 42 years after its initial, 1973 release - What could I possibly say about Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" that hasn't already been said about a 1000 times before?

With its lyrics containing themes that pertain to the likes of conflict, greed, death and mental illness, this phenomenally popular album of Pink Floyd's has not only sold over 50 million copies (worldwide), making it one of the best selling records of all time, but it also remained on Billboard's record chart for 14 years, straight.

To say that this one album, alone, made the members of Pink Floyd very-very rich, indeed, would truly be an understatement. I mean, it, literally, catapulted these British blokes into mega-stardom, overnight. And, that's no exaggeration.

(*Additional lyrics excerpt*) - "For long you live and high you fly.... But only if you ride the tide..... And balanced on the biggest wave.... You race toward an early grave."

One of my all-time favorites, the whole sound is sometimes better than others, including "The Wall"! "The Dark Side of the Moon" is more depressive and even thought-provoking than its successors, but its an instant classic.
