Wordless: Dark Side of the Moon

This album was the point where I graduated from collecting 45s to purchasing albums. It was first available for sale on March 17, 1973. I was eleven. Many critics consider Dark Side of the Moon to be Pink Floyd’s defining work, and is still frequently ranked by music critics as one of the greatest and most influential albums of all time.

Dark Side of the Moon is the third best selling album of all time worldwide and ranks 20th in the United States. It spent over fourteen years on Billboard’s list of top 200 best selling albums, longer than any other album in history.

Fly Me to the Moon!

I was able to see Diana Krall several, several months ago when she appeared at Atlanta’s Chastain Park.

My husband had won the tickets from a radio station. While I had heard her and recognized her voice the concert was my first true exposure to her musical style.

I fell in love….

You can find out more at her her website, her Wikipedia page (she’s married to Elvis Costello, you know?), and her MySpace page.

Here she is performing Fly Me to the Moon:

The song I’m bathing in today is “Cabbagetown” by Shawn Mullins. Why? For starters Shawn Mullins is from my state, and Cabbagetown has historical significance for someone like me…an Atlantan.

Cabbagetown is a particular section of Atlanta….you can read about it here…the neighborhood website has everything you would want to know about it.

Quick facts regarding Shawn Mullins:

*best known for his 1998 hit Lullaby. It was number one on the Adult Top 40 and nominated for a Grammy Award.

*Graduated from Clarkston High School in Clarkston, Georgia.

*Friends with Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls.

*Attended North Georgia College and State University where he was bandmaster of the military marching band.

*You might recognize another famous song of his titled “All Im My Head,” featured on the hit tv show “Scrubs.” The song was written after an email was sent out by the producers indicating they were searching for a new theme song. It wasn’t selected, but was used in the first episode.

*The television show “Dawson’s Creek” used his song “Shimmer.”

*His official website is here, his Myspace page is here
