The album “Dark Side of the Moon” by Pink Floyd was one of the best records ever made and I think music buffs and fans will agree that their music is epic and almost sounds like a classical rock type of music. Pink Floyd’s music is so poetic and so powerful, I don’t think there is another band that will ever come out like them again. How about some stats on the album since it’s release on March 24, 1973, I think talking about the success of the record should be pretty cool right? Anyways Since it’s release, the album Dark Side of the Moon has sold thirty four million copies worldwide. Back then David Gilmour, Floyd's guitarist and vocalist, made a bet with their manager Steve O’Rourke that the record wouldn’t reach the top ten in the US. To Gilmour’s surprise the album hit number one for a week straight on the charts. There is some cool facts about some of the songs on the record as well. Like for the songs "Brain Damage" and "Speak to Me" it was the laughter of Peter Watts in the background of the two songs. Peter Watts is the road manager for the label. Another cool fact about Dark Side of the Moon is, it only took the band seven weeks to write out all the songs heard on the record. Another true fact about the album is that in 1990, Australians said that the songs on Dark Side is the best songs to be intimate with. There is like so many facts about the songs, and the interpretation that people have of the record. Out of everything that is or has been said about Dark Side of the Moon, one of my favorites is when they started saying back in 1990 or 92 that Pink Floyd wrote the songs on the record to be played while watching "The Wizard of Oz” because of all the similarities with the music and lyrics on the album and in the movie. It is suggested that you watch The Wizard of Oz while listening to the whole album of Dark Side of the Moon. Start the music right when the lion roars the third time. After you do this let me know if you think that Pink Floyd did this intentionally or just a coincidence. Of course Pink Floyd denies everything, but you never know. Anyways this is a pretty simple lesson for all you Floyd lovers out there. It is just a triangle and some lines.
