    Dark Side of the Moon was an album not a song...

      Brick in the wall was the tune that was in the charts when the school riots started and a teacher got his hand impaled on the railings outside of our school. After that there was regular fights between my old school and the other secondary down the road. Best time in my school career was marching out of the gates with several hundred other pupils go get our own back on the other school on more then one occasion.Brick became our anthem.

        As was the tradition with "School fights" did the other school know this fight was to happen?

          Dark Side of the Moon was the name of an album not a song as far as I know. I used to have this album, it was in the Guinness Book of Records for being the biggest selling album ever by a British group at one time, maybe still is. They got into the lower reaches of the singles chart in the late 80's with a song called "One Slip".

            They had 2 singles in the late 1960s, See Emily Play & Arnold Layne, both written by Syd Barratt before he left the group.

              High Hopes
              Keep Talking and Take It Back were all released as singles from the Division Bell. As far as I remember they all did pretty poorly in the singles chart.

              Gotta laugh at how possibly the worst Pink Floyd track of all time (without doubt the worst of the 3 parts of Another Brick in the Wall) was their only singles chart success.


              Edit: I'm sure On the Turning Away from Momentary Lapse of Reason was released as a single.

                Another Brick..., although their most successful UK single (the last #1 on the 70s!), it was far from their only UK singles chart success! See Emily Play, for example, was top ten!

                    Me too ! The Syd stuff is amazing, wonderful songs.
                    But beyond the Syd years, my faves are Atom Heart Mother, DSOTM & Animals.
                    Incredible band.

                          Far to lazy to google it but wasn't "money" also a chart success?

                              "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is great, about Syd Barrett, I believe.
