Dark Side Of The Moon

Dark Side Of The Moon cover

Utgitt:
UK: 24. mars 1973
US: 17. mars 1973

Info:

  • Om Pink Floyd ikke hadde gitt ut flere album enn dette, så ville det alene vært nok til å få bandet inn i rekordbøkene.
  • Hele albumet (unntatt Eclipse) ble spilt på 4 konserter i Rainbow Theatre i London i februar 1972, ett år før albumet ble gitt ut.
  • Det første (av flere) 'konseptalbum' av Pink Floyd.
  • Tar for seg hvordan hverdagslig press fra det moderne liv kan føre til galskap.
  • Flere plasser i albumet kan man høre deler av en eller flere dialoger. Disse klippene er svar på spørsmål som bandet stilte til folk. Spørsmål som for eksempel: 'Når var du voldelig sist?' og 'Når var siste gang du slo noen?' blir besvart.
  • Paul McCartney var en av de som ble intervjuet under innsamlingen av disse svarene, men hans svar er ikke med på albumet.
  • Mannen som får de siste ordene på albumet idet hjerteslagene dør ut med, There is no dark side of the moon, really. Matter of fact, it's all dark, er Jerry Driscoll.
  • Albumet tilbragte fantastiske 724 uker på US Billbord topp 100 liste (det er 14 år det!).
  • Dark Side of the Moon er det 4. mest solgte albumet gjennom tidene.
  • Utgivelsesdatoene for dette albumet var søndager i 1973.
  • Coveret viser til gruppas rykte for fantastiske lysshow.
  • Fargen rosa mangler i fargediagrammet.

Speak to Me
Mason

*Instrumental*

I've been mad for fucking years, absolutely years, been
over the edge for yonks, been working me buns off for bands...

I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the
most of us...very hard to explain why you're mad, even if you're not mad...

Breathe
Waters/Gilmour/Wright

Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care
Leave but don't leave me
Look around and chose your own ground
For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be

Run, run rabbit run
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down it's time to start another one
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

On the Run
Gilmour/Waters

*Instrumental*

Live for today, gone tomorrow, that's me, HaHaHaaaaaa!

Time
Mason/Waters/Wright/Gilmour

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then the one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you're older
And shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desparation in the English way
The time is gone the song is over, thought I'd something more to say

Home, home again I like to be there when I can
When I come in cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

The Great Gig in the Sky
Wright

*Instrumental*

And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do, I
don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime.

I never said I was frightened of dying.

Money
Waters

Money, get away
Get a good job with more pay and your O.K.
Money it's a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I'll buy me a football team

Money get back
I'm all right Jack keep your hands off of my stack.
Money it's a hit
Don't give me that do goody good bullshit
I'm in the hi-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet

Money it's a crime
Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie
Money so they say
Is the root of all evil today
But if you ask for a rise it's no surprise that they're
giving none away

Yes, absolutely in the right!
I certainly was in the right!
You was definitely in the right. That geezer was cruising for a bruising!
Yeah!
Why does anyone do anything?
I don't know, I was really drunk at the time!"
I was just telling him, he couldn't get into number 2. He was asking
why he wasn't coming up on freely, after I was yelling and
screaming and telling him why he wasn't coming up on freely.
It came as a heavy blow, but we sorted the matter out

Us and Them
Waters/Wright

Us and Them
And after all we're only ordinary men
Me, and you
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do
Forward he cried from the rear
and the front rank died
And the General sat, as the lines on the map
moved from side to side
Black and Blue
And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and Down
And in the end it's only round and round and round
Haven't you heard it's a battle of words
the poster bearer cried
Listen son, said the man with the gun
There's room for you inside

I mean, they're not gunna kill ya, so if you give 'em a quick short,
sharp, shock, they won't do it again. Dig it? I mean he get off
lightly, 'cos I would've given him a thrashing - I only hit him once!
It was only a difference of opinion, but really...I mean good manners
don't cost nothing do they, eh?

Down and out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about
With, without
And who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about
Get out of the way, it's a busy day
I've got things on my mind
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died

Any Colour You Like
Gilmour/Mason/Wright

Brain Damage
Waters

The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path

The lunatic is in the hall
The lunatics are in my hall
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

The lunatic is in my head
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'till I'm sane

You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.

And if the cloud bursts thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

I can't think of anything to say except...
I think it's marvellous! HaHaHa!

Eclipse
Waters

All that you touch
And all that you see
All that you taste
All you feel
And all that you love
And all that you hate
All you distrust
All you save
And all that you give
And all that you deal
And all that you buy
beg, borrow or steal
And all you create
And all you destroy
And all that you do
And all that you say
And all that you eat
And everyone you meet
And all that you slight
And everyone you fight
And all that is now
And all that is gone
And all that's to come
And everything under the sun is in tune
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

There is no dark side of the moon, really. Matter of fact, it's all dark.
