Pink Floyd’s “Speak To Me”

Song Of The Day

There are two sides inside every one of us, light and dark. Each side is painted with conflict, greed, time, death and insanity colors. Forty years ago, a band was able to turn those colors into music.

The Dark Side Of The Moon was released on March 24th 1973 as a low key album for a weird band with a new lead vocalist and an insane leader just fired from it. But it exploded inside the minds, ears, hearts and record players of sane and insane people: The Dark Side Of The Moon had touched a nerve within all of us; it spoke to us and them.

A masterpiece and wide influence on a huge amount of artists, The Dark Side remains a constant member of any album sales chart around the world, with at least more than a thousand copies being sold on a weekly basis.

The first track, Speak To Me, is an epilogue that begins with a heartbeat and sound effects that will appear further on the album, a small piece of the juggernaut about to blast to through the speakers. That heartbeat represents the new life ahead of a life changing record.

When an album is life changing, the art wrapped in sound becomes immortal itself.
