60th Anniversary P Bass Notes & Trivia: 1973

Side two of landmark Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon opens with the seldom-accomplished musical feat of a major hit song composed in great part in an unusual time signature. Further, an instantly recognizable Precision Bass riff by Roger Waters dominates the proceedings.

What is the song, and what non-standard time signature is much of it in?

Answer: The song is “Money,” and the time signature is 7/4.

Congrats to Dave and Marcus McK for their correct answers in the blog comments, and Benjamin H Smith, Joseph Tudino, Mike Farley, Chris Bradley, Ian Graham, Andrew Mark Wilhelm and Harlan Baer for being right on Facebook!
