Big anniversary, Floyd fans! Arguably their biggest album turns 45 this month, a little album called “Dark Side of the Moon” that spent over 740 weeks on the charts after it came out in March 1973. That’s 14 years. In other words, I looked like this when “Dark Side” came out,…
,…and this was me 14 years later when it finally left the charts.
If you need further proof of the album’s vitality, look no further than Roger Waters and his current “Us and Them” tour as he’s playing several songs from “Dark Side”.
As for my personal favorites, “Time” always has to lead into “Great Gig in the Sky” for me when I blast this album in the car or at home.
And I still get chills when I listen to the album’s rousing finale.
How about you? What’s your favorite “Dark Side” tune?
