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.”

Disturbed “The Sound Of Silence”

This cover song came on 93.3 WMMR after the gym ( 60 minute Spin ride tribute to Prince) when arriving home.  My son and I were parked but grabbed our cells to see who was singing.  We stayed silent in the car until the music was over.   Did it pull my heart strings? Just when you believe new music is dead. Brilliant. Bravo.

This morning I played the song again for my twenty-eight year old son. ” Mom, I remember this song from the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.”

The first tract by Disturbed was performed on Conan, March 28, 2016.

The  2nd track below was  performed on 9/11 Ground Zero, by Paul Simon, Sep 11, 2011.

Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.”
And whispered in the sound of silence
