Dark Side of the Moon: 1,500 weeks on the charts!


Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ reached another impressive landmark last week.

The seminal 1973 record achieved an amazing 1,500 weeks on the American Billboard charts since its release.

When it was originally released it achieved a whopping 736 consecutive weeks on the chart until it dropped out in 1988.

Following another brief five week run, it has since dotted in and out of the top 200 for a further 759 non-consecutive weeks.

    and then one day you’ll find

    1,500 weeks have got behind you…I don’t subscribe to the record’s apathy or cynicism anymore, life is too beautiful. Still I think the work stands as the perfect synthesis of Barrett’s unique musical influence and the more accessable pop sensibilities of Gilmour and Waters.

    The last great Pink Floyd record, in my mind.
