Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon - 1973


Pink Floyd Dark Side Of The Moon Record Album

There really is no dark side of the moon

The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path.


Those are the beginning lyrics to the ever popular song title "Brain Damage" which happened to be the Grassy Knoll Institutes high school class song. Pretty appropriate song for the 1970's.

The album cover was unique in that there was no title on the front or the back. Just the triangle in the center with the light refracting spectrum against a dull black background. Remember folks, this was 1973, a time way before MTV and music video's. An album title was critical in the sale of records, no, not CD's, records. The title and artwork played a big part in sales.

Pink Floyd abandoned the norm and went for the stand out unique concept. And if you look at sales, it is one of the best selling albums of all time.

The inside jacket continued with the light prism with a heart beat rhythm resonating through.

The inside jacket also had the song lyrics and the only mention of Pink Floyd is the top left of the inside right jacket where it says the album was produced by Pink Floyd. The album was also produced at Abbey Road studio, owned by the Beatles in London, England.

The back cover is simply an upside down triangle with the light prism passing through forming a single white light.


The Grassy Knoll Institute recommends you to break out the old vinyl and take a listen to the Dark Side Of The Moon. Especially if you intend to watch the Wizard Of Oz anytime soon. A hint: At the second roar of the lion roars at the beginning of the movie, start the album. Hard to explain, but very interesting.

  1. I recently heard that some bright boffin has built a better nusic mapper, the result, 3D chord geometries.

    I would like to see pink floyd's music analysed to see what, if any, relationship it has with the natural mathematics of our existence.

    What we see is all we will ever know, it's such a shame that we can't see the afterglow... for then, we'd know how dangerous it is to play with fire when there is enough overhead.

    as an afterthought, anyone considered checking for any heightened radiation effects which might occur during a lunar ecclipse? just a thought.

    I don't know how many people will read this, or how many people get on this site, but I'm doing a project. I'm trying to find out an inner meaning of Pink Floyd. I have no idea if my thought on this is true, but I have a good guess they hid a message. I might sound crazy, but it's worth finding out. If anyone is in to help me with this project get on myspace or facebook and look for me, because I don't ever use my e-mail. I will send you a message with the information I have already collected, and we will go from there. If you help I gladly say thank you.

  3. Storm, how about offering up what you think Pink Floyd was hiding. Then I'll let you know my theory.

    I'm not sure if they are hiding anything, or if any theory is workable in any way. I just think it'd be amazing if they did inlace a message and to figure out. If your theory really is about Floyd I'd like to hear it and discuss it with you, but if your theory is to critisize me or them I want nothing to do with it. I don't need any ridicule, I just need someone interested in this as I am.

    My bad LOTGK, I thought you were just another person going through the net. I had no idea you are the one who wrote all that up there and more until I actually opened my eyes and looked.
