Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon: Wikipedia Album Entry
The Dark Side of the Moon (titled Dark Side of the Moon in the 1993 CD edition) is a concept album by the British progressive rock band Pink Floyd. It was released on March 17, 1973 in the U.S. and March 24, 1973 in the UK.
The Dark Side of the Moon builds upon previous experimentation Pink Floyd had done, especially on their album Meddle. Its themes include old age, conflict and insanity; the latter possibly inspired by the deteriorating mental state of their former band leader Syd Barrett. The album is notable for its use of musique concrète and conceptual, philosophical lyrics, as found in much of Pink Floyd's work.
The Dark Side of the Moon spent 741 consecutive weeks (14 years) on the USA-based Billboard 200 album chart, the longest duration of any album in history. It is one of three albums tied for the claim of second highest selling album globally of all time, selling forty million or more units. In addition to its commercial success, The Dark Side of the Moon is often considered to be the group's defining work, and is still frequently ranked by music critics as one of the greatest and most influential albums of all time.
In 2006 it was voted "My Favourite Album" by viewers and listeners to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and in 2003 Rolling Stone listed The Dark Side of the Moon 43rd on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. It is also #2 on the Definitive 200 Albums of All Time, a list made by the National Association of Recording Merchandisers "in celebration of the art form of the record album".

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
When I come home cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
"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 have...very hard to explain why you're mad, even if you're not mad..."
(female announcing flights)
"...have your passports ready....Rome..."
"Live for today, gone tomorrow, that's me, HaHaHaaaaaa!"
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
"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."
You get a good job with good pay and you're okay
Us and them
And after all we're only ordinary men
Me and you
God only knows
The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
And daisy chains and laughs
All that you touch
And all that you see
All that you taste
All you feel
