I can't resist but ask this: Don't you think Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd is still the greatest album that was ever made, influencing generations upon generations of music lovers, protroding an exquisite musical taste?
But maybe there is more. It was music at its best. In the light of the hippie revolution, pop music, and the heavy drainage of sound, PF, represented a distinct taste, a cultural 'betterment' of what came to exist in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Unfortunately, I don't think it got the recognition it properly deserved because of the diatrabe that flooded our radios, concerts, television and shops.
I don't know so much about that, but it was HUGE in Australia, and my grandchildren still love it.
Actually in this part of the world, people especially those raised in an "English culture" do know PF and enjoy the songs. A friend of mine told me, they actually sang the Wall in a concert they performed at Jordan University in the 1990s. Isn't it pleasently exciting, you in Australia, me in Jordan, communicating online through hubpages in Calfornia. Cheers!
Maybe not the best of all time, but definitely in top 10. Pink Floyd = Genius!
I did a hub on the most influential albums of all time. This album is there, as is Sgt Peppers Lonelt hearts club band, Led Zep IV, Bringing it All back Home (Dylan), London Calling (Clash), My Generation, Thriller and many many more!!!
I agree that Dark Side of the Moon is close to the top of the list in importance!
A great album indeed but not the greatest ever, not even the greatest by Floyd, which for my money has to be "Wish You Were Here"
Sorry guys, gals this wasn't supposed to be on the Iraqi forum, but now it is thanks for having such an opinionated good time
I'm disappointed. I really thought there was some connection there. Music does have healing/uniting properties, you know
Why is this posted in politics? I love their music, especially the album Meddle. Dark Side of the Moon is a timeless piece of work.
As you can see from my avatar, I am a huge fan. The Dark Side of the Moon set the bar for all other groups. My second favourite is of course the Wall.
So...what's your favorite PF song, everyone? Here's mine:

I LOVE this song!
Here's mine. I enjoy nothing better then getting home from the club, put the earphones on, volume to 10 and sit back and relax. Its the last song they did together.
I love it when you see the drummer take of his headphones to hear the guitar rift..
You have to be in a very open state of mind to really absorb the meaning of Pink Floyd's lyrics.The name of the band was a tribute to two blues singers they considered there inspiration.Pink[last name]Floyd[first name].DSM is the journey from birth to death...heartbeat begins,heart beat fades out.The Wall,each of us accumulating different Bricks[painful experiences]during our lives...The ultimate question of ego defence mechanisms rule or destruction.The track that stands out in my mind is a short instrumental that will touch the deepest part of your being,I promise...Marooned,it's on youtube.Pink...Floyd...
A lot of music, lots of fans. Pink Floyd must be great thanks to many people out there who still appreciate their artistic music. One hell of a group!
I love Pink Floyd and have for years. There just have been so few bands that remained so consistent for so long. Although Dark Side is undoubtedly brilliant, I prefer the Syd Barrett Pink Floyd (perhaps because it was so short lived) and Piper at the Gates of Dawn is definitely the albumn by them that I enjoy the most. But when it comes down to it, my favorite song is Echoes from the lp Meddle, the last pre-Dark Side albumn.
this is the best thread I've seen in the politics forum.
so many favorites. I don't think there's any problem in life that listening to Pink Floyd can't remedy.. . at least for a while.
Comfortably Numb has to be one of the greats.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond - genius.
Who doesn't love Dark Side of the Moon??
[maybe the world needs to listen to PF more often to keep life in perspective]
Yeah it is nice to know that Iraqi politics has been made smoother thanks to the music of Pink Floyd. Funny how no one has pointed out why/how . . .
Impossible to pick a single favorite, but I really like this one even if it was post-Waters.
Can I just say with PF, the music seems timeless. With Dark Side of the Moon or Wish You Were Here, I get the feeling that its today, orginal, fresh and current, not so with other music which had a time label, tied to a specific period.
I may be getting in a little over my head here but, if Pink Floyd has been entered a political forum, it may be partly due to the album (& movie) "The Wall", which had a few strong political overtones. The marching hammers & the Hitler-like speech for example. The movie connects all the songs from the album into a large part of the story of Pink's life.
I do love the Dark side of the Moon, but I can somewhat immerse myself into Pink's world while watching The Wall.
Has to be Pink Floyd Animals is my favorite
Have to strike when the moment is right
I love Dark side of the moon. Money is one of my favourite songs of all time!
Pink Floyd has been a favorite since the Barrett days. I live about eight blocks from the home of Pink Anderson, famous Carolina blues player, and the inspiration for 'Pink' in Pink Floyd. ( Along with Floyd Council from North Carolina ). I went by the home with a friend of mine a few weeks ago and spoke with the gentleman living there now. He's never heard of Pink Floyd. Anyway, Barrett's 'Watch that Axe, Eugene' sticks out in my mind for some odd reason. Dark Side of the Moon is one of the top five or six rock albums on virtually any list. Can't forget the Beatle's Revolver, Sgt Peppers and the White Album, as well as the Beach Boys 'Pet Sounds'... JMHO
Check out my hubs on great new music. Yeah Pink Floyd was good but lets not get stuck in the past.
<URL snipped - no self-promotion in the forums>
Pink Floyd is the Most Unique Band ever! "The Wall" is one I love but all their music is awesome. Singles were not their thing...maybe that is why they are so good. They sold tons of records and sold out concerts. They had the creative freedom to be anything...they were. They innovated so well. Great band chemistry with band members.
I think Piper at the Gates of Dawn, See Emily Play and Arnold Layne. They tried to imitate Syd's style in Dark Side of the Moon, and got the dreamy part right. I still love the album though, (Dark Side) it's like the sound track of my HS years!
Love PF and Dark Side was a ground breaking album in Rock. It takes you through life and even starts out as classical style of music to hook everyone in.
Abso-Fucking-Lutely i mentioned them in my hub about the death of the music industry

I've been listening to them for the past 2 years and have enjoyed every album. Something about their sound is just so perfect. That's just me, what do you guys think?

Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin?If there were a retroactive "Battle of the Bands", and the last two standing were Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, who would you choose? I have seen them both live in concert more than once each over the years. Pink Floyd has incredible showmanship and incredible...

I think they're the two greatest bands in history, but only one can be the best. In my opinion, the Beatles were better. They evolved so far in such a short amount of time, and so much of their music paved the way for bands that came years after them. Everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd...
