‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ is still relevant after fifty years. The timeless hit by Pink Floyd combined majesty and gloom. It became one of the best-selling albums of all time and was very much a product of its period.
“On the Run”Like other massively popular songs from the 1970s and 1980s, such as Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” the Eagles’ “Hotel California,” and Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours,” “Dark Side” deals with cynicism, dread, and contempt while being professionally produced. It’s not orderly; it’s unsettled and obsessed at the core.
Pink Floyd taught other musicians and producers how to combine grandeur and melancholy and how a few strategically placed sounds may convey far more than a flashy demonstration of virtuosity.
