     In my private studies of other languages, I sometimes run across interesting things about the history or culture of different peoples. Here are a few goodies that I recently found for my Greek studies. Songs are at youTube.

I had Dark Side of the Moon in 8-track when I first started driving in 1977.

Doors, Moody Blues, The Who, Jethro Tull... The sounds of my youth.

My favorite version of Comfortably Numb was on the Delicate Sound of Thunder album, Which I also got to see live in a football stadium.

If you like Floyd...

Check out this version of "Mother", sang by Sinead O'Conner, backed up by The Band.

Garth Hudson plays accordion, and Rick Danko, Levon Helm (with a Red Sox cap on   :thumb: ) and Roger Waters sing back-up.

This was from the Berlin Wall concert in 91.

Yes, we lived through a wonderful musical period ,are there any comparable bands now?
Went to nearly all the Floyd concerts in the UK, flying pigs ,amazing light shows says it all with unforgettable sounds
Must admit the dross on the Wireless (shows my age ) does not get listened to nowadays.
Luckily theres stations still playing old stuff which I listen to now and again .

and Camps choice is very pertinent to today with lyrics, "shall we drop the bomb, build a wall ,firing line,  should I trust the government !  :laugh:

My dad apparently put the headphones on me when I was a constipated toddler and played this:  Pink Floyd Animals- Pigs
He said this cured me and I admit I've have never been constipated since. ;D

Pink Floyd Animals is my favourite Floyd album:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8puJpOQ8F8  Turn it up loud enough and the noises do strange things to you..  :o

We listened to a lot of stuff in his shed and I still love the music in his era more than music from my generation.  Recently remembered this: Spirit- Potato Land 

Brilliant stuff and funny enough both albums have some George Orwell connection.
Quote
Waters was partly inspired by George Orwell's political fable Animal Farm in which people are divided up into groups represented by animals. While Orwell was focusing on Communism, Roger was criticizing his own Capitalist government. In Floyd's version the people are either Dogs, Pigs, or Sheep.

Kind of surprised me reading that the Spirit song based on George Orwell's book '1984': Spirit - 1984 was banned from air play back in the day for being too controversial.   Saddened to read how Randy California died but he saved his son and sacrificed himself.

With the passing of Malcolm Young I looked at a few tributes form major rock stars, but particularly liked a set of 10 rifts from an unknown. No singing, just an extra drum track.
