Moneyshot Cosmonauts The North Side of the Pole, Part 2: Cardiac Time 
THE NORTH SIDE OF THE POLE
A parody of Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon
Part 2: "Cardiac Time" [to "Time" & "Breathe (Reprise)"]

Christmas is awesome. Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon is awesome. So obviously we had to combine the two. The result is The North Side of the Pole, a Christmas-themed parody/mash-up of THE ENTIRE ALBUM.

Years into this project, we have yet to complete it, but we're making progress, dammit! Our latest chapter is this parody of "Time" (plus the reprise of "Breathe") about the joy of holiday gluttony. Because "Pigging out on candy decorations is the Christmas way."

So indulge. And then check out the other parts we've done:
Part 4: "Red and Green" (to "Us and Them")
Part 5: "Chimney Damage" (to "Brain Damage")
Part 6: "All That and a Bag of Gifts" (to "Eclipse")

The comrades:
M. Spaff Sumsion: Concept and lyrics
Chris Mezzolesta: All lead and backing vocals, guitar, and bass
Bob Emmet: Keyboards, drums, and mixing

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Great parody, and excellent production, but as a Pink Floyd die-hard, I have to say.... noooooo you cut the intro and the guitar solo!!!

Thanks, dino-mike, madmanOTL, mrwompy, and weirdojace!

Jace: I'm sure that Bob and Chris were willing to do the guitar solos and would have nailed them. I nixed the idea, however. IMHO, 7:05 is way too long for a song parody, and, unless you're, say, Spike Jones or PDQ Bach, instrumental parts just aren't that funny. If we do ever end up completing the album, however, maybe we’ll try to come up with creative treatments for some of the instrumental bits, of which DSOTM has a plethora.
