Fun Music Facts: Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side Of The Moon” 741 weeks on the charts.

Pink Floyd

By Craig ONeal GFDL (

When Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side Of The Moon” finally fell off of Billboard’s Hot 200 Album list in October 1988, it had set a record of 741 weeks on the chart.

Whether you are learning to play the piano or just started the guitar, I highly recommend listening to Pink Floyd. There have inspired millions of musicians and they are a reminder of what happens when musical boundaries are pushed. Talk to any serious musician and I guarantee you that this band will be on their list of greatest bands of all time.

What musicians inspire you as you learning how to play piano? The more music you listen to, the better feel you will get when you sit down at the piano, hands down. Do a search for “great pianists” and “great piano players” and start listening. You can thank me later 🙂

Happy playing!
