Dark Side of the Moon's Billboard power

Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon has achieved the impressive feat of staying on the Billboard charts for a record 1,500 weeks. The album has sold an estimated 40 million copies worldwide since its debut in 1973.

Roger Waters comments on the album:

"When the record was finished, I took a reel-to-reel copy home with me, and I remember playing it for my wife and her bursting into tears when it was finished. "I thought, 'This has obviously struck a chord.' I was kinda pleased by that. I thought to myself, 'Wow, this is a pretty complete piece of work,' and I had every confidence that people would respond to it."
