Description

For the 100th episode of Strong Songs, Kirk takes a deep dive into one of the most famous concept albums ever recorded. 

Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" is an instantly recognizable, widely discussed album, played and replayed to the point that it's easy to forget that it was made by a handful of young people with some instruments and a mixing desk. So buckle in for a whirlwind tour of the entire record, with pauses along the way to highlight some of the sounds, styles, and techniques that made The Dark Side of the Moon such an artistic and technological breakthrough.

ALBUM: The Dark Side of the Moon, 1973

Music By: David Gilmour, Richard Wright, Roger Waters, Nick Mason
Lyrics By: Roger Waters
Engineered by: Alan Parsons

ALSO FEATURED/DISCUSSED

  • "Blue in Green" by Bill Evans/Miles Davis from Kind of Blue 1959
  • "The Wizard of Oz," 1939
  • The 2003 documentary Pink Floyd: The Making of The Dark Side of the Moon
