8k79 …from the dark side of the moon to this year’s model…

A skew-whiff selection of songs from which their album of origin has been named.. and yet these are not “title tracks”, the albums are named from lyrics within these songs.. for instance we start with Brain Damage by Pink Floyd which contains the lyric “see you on the dark side of the moon” … you get the idea. Some bands/artists did this often so we have 2 from Radiohead, 2 from Pixies, 2 from Magazine, 2 from Elvis Costello – in fact it was listening to Alison with the line My Aim Is True that nudged me in this direction …. broadcast on 8k.nz radio Otautahi, NZ … enjoy, skew
