The best album ever still has to come, and ... if it is finally there (I hope it never will), we have to watch out for another best album ever, otherwise we won't have any development ...

When my paranoia was at maximum, about 24 hours before the Millenium Bug could have screwed everything up, I had penciled in Dark Side as the album I would waste my last 45 minutes of electricity on...<br><br>At that point in time it was the best album ever, but not anymore.<br><br>

Very hard to argue with Dark Side. Listened to it twice today on a 300 mile drive. When it came out it was a major leap forward for Pink Floyd. It's also amazing how it has held up.

Am I the only person that thinks In The Court Of The Crimson King is better than Dark Side Of The Moon?  ???

Eveeryone talks about "Dark Side" and "The Wall", but nobody ever talks about "Wish You Were Here". I'd rather listen to that than the other 2, which is high praise considering that the other 2 are amazing.<br><br>P.S. Anyone ever watch "The Wizard of Oz" with the sound turned off and "Dark Side" playing? It's really amazing, if you line it up right. The lyrics really match what's going on on the screen. My favorite part is whenn Dorothy opens the door to Munchkinland, and the first cash register chime from "Money" plays at the same time. It still gives me chills just thinking about it. (No, wait. That's the fan I have running.  :P)

It's really amazing, if you line it up right.... [/quote]<br><br>i forgot about that, thanks suterb, now i'll have to check it out.....[font=times new roman]
  • begin the CD at the end of the third, final roar of the MGM lion
  • opening credits roll to the heartbeats and ticking of Speak to Me
  • black-and-white farm scenes begin with the song Breathe
  • Dorothy is talking with the farm hands, then begins to walk the fence rail. The lyric "And balanced on the biggest wave You race towards an early grave" plays as Dorothy loses her balance and falls from the fence
  • "On the Run" sounds the alarm when Miss Gulch, (Wicked Witch of the West) appears, tempo follows the bickering between Gulch, Dorothy, & Auntie Em
  • Dorothy makes her decision to run away with Toto during the song "Time."Toto escapes Miss Gulch and jumps through Dorothy's window to join her to the lyric "Waiting for someone or something to show you the way."
  • The two set off together and meet up with Professor Marvel, who looks into his crystal ball and tells Dorothy that she is needed at home. The "Breathe Reprise" plays:<br>"Home, home again <br>I like to be here when I can....<br>To hear the softly spoken magic spells."
  • The Great Gig in the Sky, plays as the tornado builds. The vocals by Clare Torry peak as the tornado sweeps Dorothy and her home up into its vortex
  • cash register ka-chings on Money as Dorothy opens the door and the film changes into vivid color. Dorothy steps into the rich, Technicolor world and Glinda glides down in her bubble to the lyric "And I think I need a Lear jet."
  • Us and Them plays during Dorothy's encounter with the munchkins & the Wicked Witch of the West. The lyric "Black and blue/And who knows which and which and who is who" plays as Glinda explains that Dorothy has dropped the house on the witch's sister. The line "Up and down" plays as the camera aims downward at the ruby slippers. "Down and Out" plays as Glinda fades out in her bubble and Dorothy begin down the yellow brick road
  • Any Color You Like plays as Dorothy continues her journey along the vividly colored brick road
  • Brain Damage starts and Dorothy meets up with the Scarecrow, who begins flopping and flailing about on the ground to the lyrics "The lunatic is on the grass." Dorothy and the Scarecrow begin their journey down the brick road to the lyric "Got to keep the loonies on the path." The song ends with "I'll see you on the dark side of the moon" and then leads into Eclipse
  • The CD ends with the beating of a heart as Dorothy listens to the Tin Man's chest
[/font]<br>
