Bonnie Tyler will be singing her classic hit “Total Eclipse of the Heart” aboard, fittingly, a Total Eclipse Cruise on Monday as the sun fades away into total darkness.
This after famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson took Pink Floyd to task over the validity of both their album title “Dark Side of the Moon” and Gerry O’Driscoll’s final spoken words on the album (“there is no dark side of the moon,…it’s all dark”).
To which I say (all due respect to you, Mr. Tyson) WHO CARES?! It’s still one of the best closers of any album. And equal respect in kind, Ms. Tyler. But the last minute or so of Floyd’s classic tune would sound so powerful as the sun is being, quite literally, “eclipsed by the moon”.
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
