Selling Alderaan By The Pound

My new favourite blog is, sadly, no longer being updated, but there is plenty of archived stuff there to dig into. Going back to the urban legend beloved of stoned students in the 90s, namely that Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon was a sort of secret soundtrack to The Wizard of Oz, this is “one nerd’s attempt to find an album that synchs up with Star Wars”. Here’s an article in which the gentleman in question looks back on the “experiment”, and doesn’t even attempt to justify it. None needed. Anything that brings together my two favourite things, Star Wars and (in the case of the album referenced in the above title) “moody prog rock” is bound to get my approval.
