Pink Floyd: The Great Gig In The Sky.

My Dearest Friend Angelo, brilliant DJ, reminded me of the times we shared this song together. He inspired my improvisational dance career in South Jersey. I was feeling blue and he told me I owned this song when performed. Deep emotional feelings surface down to my heart and inner soul.

Pink Floyd keyboard player Rick Wright, wrote this song, which is about life, gradually descending into death. Hence the angrier and more intense first half with a dying person refusing to “go gently into that good night.”The second half is gentler, as the dying person gives into the inevitable and fades away. In the March 1998 issue of Mojo, Wright explained: “For me, one of the pressures of being in the band was this constant fear of dying because of all the traveling we were doing in planes and on the motorways in America and in Europe.”

Hall & Oates – She’s Gone video, Retro 1974.  Abandoned Luncheonette Album.

Hall and Oates had left Temple University when I arrived in 1974.

Their corner dorm room was said to be on the 9th or 11th floor of Johnson Hall.

Classic is their demeanor in this their first music video. ( Maybe high on….)  Remember this was way back in the 70’s, No MTV.

Re-released in 1976, the single went from #60 on Billboard to #7.

from the album: “A Space In Time” (1971)

Seems appropriate to break out this song/video. Was one of my High School favorites .  Over 40 years later, the words have meaning. Those guitar rifts are brilliant.

Everywhere is freaks and hairies
Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity
Tax the rich, feed the poor
‘Til there are no rich no more  I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you, Population keeps on breeding
Nation bleeding, still more feeding economy
Life is funny, skies are sunny
Bees make honey, who needs money, No none for meI’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you. Oh yeah!World pollution, there’s no solution
Institution, electrocution
Just black and white, rich or poor
Senators stop the war, I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you
