Codename: Action!

Deal of the day - Dark Side of the Moon for $5

You can download Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon for $5 on Amazon.

You probably already own it though.

Wikipedia says the album was on Billboard's top 100 sellers for over 17 years. It's the third best-selling album of all time in the world. 20th best-selling in the U.S.

Fun Fact: Members of Pink Floyd actually used profits from the album to fund the production of 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail'. See? It's not all despair after all

Then there's the whole goofy-ass "Dark SIde of the Rainbow" cult. Apparently if you watch "The Wizard of Oz" and cue up the LP at precisely the right moment during opening credit (and add some enhancements from the medicine cabinet) the words on the album sync up with the action on the screen. Some folks insist it must have been intentional, but everyone involved in the album denies it.

Watch for yourself...

I'm actually surprised to realize I've never owned a copy before today. I guess I just listened to my brother's copy when I was a sulky teenager.

At any rate, Amazon's got the deal of the day!
