Dark Side Of The Moon Voted 'Most Life-Changing Song'
PINK FLOYD's DARK SIDE OF THE MOON has been voted the Most Life-Changing Song by BBC Radio 2 listeners in Britain. Radio host JEREMY VINE invited listeners to choose the song with the most power as part of the station's new interactive music club. He explains, "Dark Side of the Moon won hands down. People just love it. For its mammoth sense of scale and all the invention, it's still wonderful." Pink Floyd vocalist and guitarist DAVID GILMOUR adds, "It's fantastic. What can I say except be thrilled. It's a good combination of great music and great lyrics. "It's music for people who have a brain as well as a soul, I think. The themes are just as relevant today as they were 33 years ago." The song received 23 per cent of the total votes and was joined in the final by THE BEACH BOYS' GOD ONLY KNOWS with 16 per cent and JEFF BUCKLEY's HALLELUJAH with 17 per cent. Other songs in the running included REM's EVERYBODY HURTS and JOHN LENNON's IMAGINE.
