Transcript of Dark Side Of The Moon - 40th Anniversary - A Tribute to Pink Floyd - #DarkSide40

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

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 dig another one
For long you live an high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.
March, 1973
Speak to me
"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..."

[female announcer, announcing flights at airport, including 'Rome']

"Live for today, gone tomorrow, that's me, HaHaHaaaaaa!"
On the run
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand 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 one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
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 desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I'd something more to say.

"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."

"If you can hear this whispering you are dying."

"I never said I was frightened of dying."
Great Gig
In The Sky
Money, get away.
Get a good job with good pay and you're okay.
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 high-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 raise it's no surprise that they're
giving none away.
Us, and them
And after all we're only ordinary men.
Me, and you.
God only knows it's noz what we would choose to do.
Forward he cried from the rear and the front rank died.
And the general sat and 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.
But in the end it's only 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?
Out of the way, it's a busy day I've got things on my mind.
For the want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died.
Us And Them
Any Colour You Like
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 forebodings 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 'til 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 marvelous! HaHaHa!"
Brain Damage
All that you touch, All that you see,
All that you taste, All you feel.

All that you love, All that you hate,
All you distrust, All you save.

All that you give, All that you deal,
All that you buy, beg, borrow or steal.

All you create, All you destroy,
All that you do, All that you say.

All that you eat, And everyone you meet,
All that you slight, And everyone you fight.

All that is now, All that is gone,
All that's to come,
and everything under the sun is in tune
"HuHuh! I was in the right!"
"Yes, absolutely in the right!"
"I certainly was in the right!"
"You was definitely in the right. That geezer was cruising for a
"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"

from the UK
released an album
that became
instead of
talking about it!
Dark Side Of The Moon
was Pink Floyd's 8th studio album
It is one of the
Best-selling albums
with approx.
50 million
copies sold so far
It still holds the Guinness book record for
741 weeks
in the US Billboard album charts
of all time
The whole album is about the
"stresses and strains
of our lives"
and is therefore more relevant
than ever today.
To gather ideas, they recorded the responses of various people to a set of questions that they have written.
"Have you ever been violent?"
"Have you been in the right?"
"Are you frightend of dying?"
and many others....
It was composed in just
6 weeks
before a tour
and the band needed exactly
3 seconds
to decide about the album cover.
The snippets of these voices between and over the music are one of the many notable features
of the album.

Chris Adamson a tour roadie,
recorded the snippet which opens the album:
"I've been mad for fucking years—absolutely years"

The band's road manager Peter Watts (father of actress Naomi Watts) contributed the
repeated laughter
during "Brain Damage" and "Speak to Me".
Perhaps the most notable responses
"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 got to go sometime"
and closing words
"there is no dark side in the moon, really. As a matter of fact it's all dark"
came from the studios' Irish doorman, Gerry O'Driscoll.

Paul and Linda McCartney were also interviewed, but their answers were judged to be "trying too hard to be funny", and were not included on the album.

McCartney's Wings band mate Henry McCullough contributed the line
"I don't know, I was really drunk at the time"
of the album.
... as the
"stresses and strains
of our lives"
are more relevant than ever...
... let's just celebrate 40 years of
and listen to the music ...
40 years
