For the last 50 years, people have immersed themselves in “The Great Gig in the Sky,” the song that ends side one of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, a big keyboard piece mated to vocalizations by Clare Torry. (Fun fact: She later sued the band saying that her contributions constituted co-writing the track, meaning that she was due royalties. And who wouldn’t? She was paid a studio fee of £30 for coming in on a Sunday. An out-of-court settlement was reached in 2005.)
Elizabeth Zharoff, otherwise known as The Charismatic Voice (she’s a professionally-trained opera singer and vocal coach), takes a look at “The Great Gig in the Sky”–apparently only the third time she’s ever heard a Pink Floyd song.
