I was really drunk at the time...

This day in history...



Dark Side of the Moon is a 1973 concept album by Pink Floyd, dealing with the nature of the human experience through themes such as money, war, mental illness, and death. It is considered by many fans to be the band's magnum opus. It is estimated that one in every 14 people in the US under the age of 50 owns or owned a copy of this album; it is the third best-selling album of all time. Many fans claim that the album's music provides an alternative soundtrack to what 1939 film?

Anybody heard the reggae version of the album by the Easy All Stars? Good stuff - Listen to Coverville's The Covered Side of the Moon presentation of Pink Floyd's classic LP from bluegrass to a cappella to orchestral and reggae.

Dark Side Of The Moon should be mandatory listening in all music history classes.
