Rock & Rap: PINK FLOYD
Updated: Mar 3
Ladies and gentlemen, I am honored to introduce you to the group Pink Floyd, whose song has intoxicated the lyrics worldwide.
Founded by Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright, who were university students in London, this group managed to win the hearts of the masses by composing songs in the style of progressive/ psidelic rock.
Some of the band's songs contained social messages and criticism. One example of that kind of song is that, they wrote "Hey, Hey, Rise!" to protest the Russo-Ukrainian War. the sarcophagus is one of them.
Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun, Time, Speak to Me / Breathe, Wish You Were Here. Hey You, Echoes, Shine on You Crazy Diamond is one of the most listened to and popular songs of the group. They released concept albums such as The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), The Wall (1979), and The Final Cut (1983). The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall became the best-selling albums of all time. The Dark Side of the Moon, which has become the symbol of the group, remained on the Billboard 200 chart for 741 weeks as the longest-running album of all time. They are one of the most commercially successful groups in the history of popular music.
