Awesome is when a random movie quote reminds you of music you love
July 2, 2011
I was watching Revolver … which is a very strange film (in the failed experiment but thanks for giving it your best shot category that I seem to enjoy so very much). Right in the middle of the film there is a random, throwaway line… “shine on you crazy diamond.”
And suddenly I remembered how much I enjoyed that song and I felt that crazy love I have always had for Pink Floyd… ever since my brother gave me my first LP, a used copy of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. From that moment I have loved every piece of Pink Floyd I’ve ever heard. Some more than others but still.
I jumped on YouTube and just started to listen to Shine On You Crazy Diamond over and over again.
So shine on you crazy diamonds!
