Pink Floyd. Dark Side Of The Moon. Need I say more?
I remember that my mom had this album when I was a young lad. It was one of the first “adult” albums I chose to play. Side 2 of DSoTM was my favorite.Pink Floyd has continued to rock my world throughout my life. Their music has been a staple throughout my life. I was lucky enough to see them play live (without Roger Waters) in 1994 at Oakland Coliseum. I was beyond ecstatic to see Roger Waters reunite with the other members of Pink Floyd to play at the Live8 concerts last year.The second Pink Floyd album that rocked my world was The Final Cut. I first heard it in high school in the dorms. I could safely say it was my favorite album back then, since it fed my depressed state of mind.
I was searching for graphics for this post and I happened across the official Pink Floyd website. They had a section on there dedicated to the re-release of The Final Cut. Here they had a short film, basically a “video” of several of their songs. I was disappointed that they used the Obscured version of Not Now John, but I assume that was for the web and that the “real” version, wherever it is, has the word “stuff” changed to the proper f-bomb.And, of course, there’s a metric ton of Pink Floyd videos on YouTube if you are so inclined.
