Pink Floyd - Money (Live 8 2005)

Checking for Matches…

These guys are Money

When this song's album, Dark Side of The Moon, was released in March 1973, it would not leave Billboard’s Top 200 best-sellers for the next 14 years — 741 weeks — through 4 U.S. Presidents — longer than the next closest record by half — and 3-times longer than any album since the 1980s. That is one rock n roll record that will never be broken.

This performance is from the spectacular Live 8 concerts staged in 11 cities around the world July 2nd to 6th, 2005, with the primary shows being held in Hyde Park, London, and Independence Mall in Philadelphia on July 2nd. Besides raising awareness of poverty issues worldwide, the concerts also raised the awareness that MTV no longer had anything to do with music — when they chose to not actually broadcast any of the performances, but rather air clearly illiterate teenage VJs babbling non-stop followed by hours of advertising during this historic benefit concert.

This was the first time in almost a quarter-century that Pink Floyd had performed live — and with the death of founding keyboardist Richard Wright in 2008, it also marked the last time the original post-Syd quartet would ever play together.

Although bassist Roger Waters was the composing maestro of the group, writing virtually every Floyd song you can name including this one, the Dark Side hit is delivered here with precision, funk, soul, edge and fine voice by the last guy to join the band, David Gilmour.

And yes, that's the original saxophonist from the album, Dick Perry. And man, is that some gorgeous sax he's blowin', and I don't just mean aurally.

Cool Visual: Right at the climax of the sax solo, don’t miss the pan shot from the nearby smokestack factory that's the cover of Animals, to the animals jamming in the park in the dark.
