Brain Damage (4:07)

Cover of The Dark Side of the Moon

From The Dark Side of the Moon and 102 other releases

Brain Damage is a song from British progressive rock band Pink Floyd’s 1973 album, The Dark Side of the Moon. It was sung by Roger Waters. David Gilmour took over as lead vocalist when the band performed it live during the 1994 tour.

The song is often mistakenly labelled “Dark Side of the Moon” alongside “Eclipse” because the two run together and are commonly played together on the radio, giving the impression that they are one song. The incorrect title is derived from a recurring lyric in “Brain Damage,” and the title of the album.

Song uses a simple melody and delivery, and is relatively slow. David Gilmour actively encouraged Waters to sing the song, even though at this time he wasn’t particularly confident about his vocal abilities.

Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path

    Мелодия подозрительно похожа на Premiata Forneria Marconi - Grazie Davvero(написана годом раньше). Но как бы там не было, завораживающая песня.

    I've heard this song many, many tmes, but never knew the name of it. Now i understand why a cover band calls themselves "Brain Damage"

    Since the last two songs off The Dark Side of the Moon bleed into each other and are often played one after the other on the radio, we’ve decided to bundle them together. Inspired by the downward mental spiral of ex-singer Syd Barrett, “Brain Damage” displays Pink Floyd’s softer side, while “Eclipse” brings volume levels up a notch with its memorable melody. -- watchmojo
