25 Comments on Young Hip Hop Artist Listens To Dark Side of the Moon For the First Time

  1. My now 85 year old mother liked this album when I used to play it. She especially liked the vocals on Gig in The Sky. She interpreted it as an angels journey to heaven. Always worked for me once she told me that.

  2. …now, REALLY blow his young mind and have him watch “The Dark Side Of The Rainbow”.

    “Popularized by Charles Savage in an article for the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette titled “The Dark Side of the Rainbow,” the mid-90s saw the rise of a popular myth that seminal rock band Pink Floyd had intentionally crafted their album “The Dark Side of the Moon” to sync up with “The Wizard of Oz.””

  3. Way back…on The Mothers album “Freak Out” inner jacket..Zappa listed his influences.
    For a kid in a small town with even smaller minds, that went a long way in opening me up to music.
    Radio sucked then and still sucks even more now.

  4. Pioneer turntable, spinning vinyl, 2 X 70 Marantz watts streaming out if 3 foot high heavy as hell Pioneer speakers.
    Those were the dayz.
    I like Pink but nothing beats Ol’ Fred Zeppelin.
    Had a friend who called this “Narcotic Music”.

  5. I watch a lot of “reaction” videos of youngers listening to music that I have listened to (and sometimes taken for granted) all my life. It is refreshing to know that many of them appreciate it for all the right musical reasons. This one has come up for me before and, although he is not (by far) a favorite, I really like to see people drawn away from “hip-hop” and toward actual music. It’s especially cool when they realize “What have I been doing with my listening time? Why haven’t I been listening to THIS?”.

  6. FWIW:

    I’m in the Gilmour Camp.

    Waters can Dig for Peanuts in Human Shit with his Tongue.

    F rappers! They are constantly sampling old music & mixing with the ols stuff.
    It Must piss them right off that one of their most popular (M&M) is a White Honkie and Jackoff Drake is 50% Jewish Canadian.

  7. I am unconvinced of the sincerity The skeptical old crank in me says that these young black guys have found a way to monetize some white peoples’ need for their musical taste to be validated by black people.

    And how come the “admirers” ooh and ahh over the whitest artists? I mean, come on, Brian Adams has at least three of these remoras. It’s almost like some people will say anything for half a penny, if their are enough half-pennies piling up.

  8. There’s a group of black guys listening to artists from the 60’s that they never heard of. They were blown away by the Righteous Brothers. The younger generation are discovering real music, can’t fault them for that.

  9. Nice to see people from a different generation give an old album like this a chance.

    Of all the money wasted by our federal government I wish they’d put some of it into keeping music like this alive and in front of new audiences.

  10. I love watching younger folks experiencing the music from many years ago, some songs recorded before they were born. My favorite reactions involve youngsters watching Stevie Ray Vaughn or Jeff Healey thrash those guitars.

  11. The funniest “reaction” video I’ve seen is of two black listeners finding out the Bee Gees are white. I’d link it here but I haven’t see the “all clear” on links yet. It’s pretty darn funny. I have noticed that all the reaction-ers tend to use the same scrunched-up facial expression to indicate how into the music they are, and the same wide-eyed amazed look, too.

    Pink Floyd? Meh. They’ve never appealed to me. Too experimental, although executed well.
