Pink Floyd biographer, Syd Gilmore Mason, recounted how many songs of the band predicted many facets of Donald Trump and his stranglehold on global politics.
“On our first album we had the tune “Interstellar Overdrive” which described Trump’s early drive to succeed and become famous. After that, we had “Saucerful of Secrets,” which certainly describes Trump’s secrecy while he “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun” which he did.“
“We then had “Meddle” which is what Trump did all the time in New York politics, when he was called “the Donald.” We continued by describing Trump’s state of mind in “Obscured by Clouds.”
On “Dark Side of the Moon,” we had Trump’s favorite subject, “Money,” followed by “On the Run” and “Brain Damage.” As Donald stabilized his position, our next album had “Have a Cigar” and “Welcome to the Machine.”
“After that, our “Animals” album had “Pigs on the Run”, and our next album, Trump’s favorite, was “The Wall.” We almost had the song “Comfortably Numb” changed to “Comfortably Dumb” to describe Trump, and talked about changing the name of the band Orange Floyd, or even, Orange Folly.”
“I think our fans will be happy with one last command performance, our song “Impeached and Imprisoned” spoke Mr. Wright.
