Pink Floyd and the Pearl Fishers

[DEAD VIDEO] Every time you think you've heard everything, something else shows up.  For children of the 70's, Pink Floyd's all-time best selling recording Dark Side of the Moon was a landmark.  It spent 591 consecutive weeks on the Billboard Top 200 chart and has sold around 34 million copies.  When it was remastered in 1993 for a 20th anniversary edition, it actually went even higher on the charts! Even knowing all of that did not prepare me for what I found on youtube recently.  David Gilmour, one of the founding members of Pink Floyd, doing a rendition of Je crois entendre encore from The Pearl Fishers by Georges Bizet. I must say, it IS a unique interpretation. -- Boyce Lancaster [youtube VvMNuuFSvN0]
