Alex's Music Appreciation Essay - II
Album: Dark Side Of The Moon
Group: Pink Floyd
Alex completed this essay in about 2 hours.
It was predicated on the premise that if he had only 5 choices of music
to accompany him to a deserted island...which they would be...and why.
He had researched much of this music on Amazon and on YouTube.
There are other pieces of music...
and groups from the greatest era of Rock...
the 60s and 70s...
and from which I would like to expose Alex to the likes of:
The Rolling Stones
for their hard driving beats and rhythms.
The Moody Blues
for their incorporation of full orchestras and beautiful melodies.
for the most mixing in of Blues and Rock...
giving it an otherworldly sound.
(old Journey - Look Into The Future)
Their song - Look Into The Future...
is still one of my favorite songs of all time.
I am so glad Alex appreciated Pink Floyd...
as this single group is still in a league of its own.
The one and only...
for his ability to truly make his guitar SING
like no other has ever been able to...
he is a true guitar god.
He is the lead guitarist and lead singer of Pink Floyd...
the greatest Progressive Rock group of all time...
the single greatest band the world has ever heard or seen.
For anyone wishing to truly experience the essence of Pink Floyd...
these albums are a must:
Dark Side Of The Moon
Wish You Were Here
A Momentary Lapse Of Reason
And for Anthologies:
Delicate Sound Of Thunder
For their best live concert (video)
For anyone who has read my blog from the beginning...
and listened to the music provided from about article 100 or so...
you will have gained modern music appreciation.
Alex just received his essay back from his college professor today:
Alex also received an A in the course.
