Did you see the eclipse tonight? Amazing!
Is there anyone my age who hears or reads about an eclipse of the moon and doesn’t think of Pink Floyd? One day, Lori and I should write about the albums that played huge roles in our lives as high school students — not necessarily our favorites, but the ones that define that time for us.
I never owned The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd. I didn’t need to own it because almost everyone else did. Also, truth be told, I didn’t enjoy it that much. I was all about Wish You Were Here, though, which I did own — on 8-track tape.
Oh, look — the song Wish You Were Here is number 316 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The album falls higher on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time — #209.
How much time could you spend looking at those lists? See, this is all I need: access to those lists and a few snacks and I’d be good for days…
