Has Tiger/Erica parted ways with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon pre-release?
One can see countless eerie forerunners of how life exactly 50 years later has mimicked art – from tee to green, lanes 1 to 10
No matter The Wizard of Oz.
Maybe Pink Floyd wrote their transcendent prog rock masterpiece LP in 1973 The dark side of the moon not as a groovy, alternative soundtrack to the epic 1939 MGM film classic – as so many false conspiracy theorists still claim – but rather as a harbinger of the grim breakup between Tiger Woods and Erica Herman half a century later.
You can do what I just did and pick any number of uncanny similarities and harbingers of how life exactly 50 years later mimicked art.
Let’s start with this: Near the end of the Woods-Herman relationship, around 2015-22, the couple mainly argued over just two things.
That’s according to a report this week Us weekly celebrity magazine.
Well, those are two of the 10 track listings Dark side.
So yes, let’s go to the end with a comparison of the whole album.
The first track on the LP is Talk to me – mostly an instrumental introduction but, like most of the album cover to cover, with barely audible, not-so-randomly spoken comments that are sonically scattered, including: “It’s very hard to explain why you’re crazy, too if you’re not crazy.”
Woods has apparently made every effort to look particularly happy this year in his few public appearances since the couple split last fall. Not crazy you see.
At the next song Breathe We hear the words, “Look around and choose your own path” — what Woods said to Herman last fall when he said he “tricked” her into an airport meeting with his attorney to tell her she was now locked out be of their house so go and find your own home.
The next mostly instrumental track, On the runcontinues the fateful theme of the airport and actually begins with the buried spoken words: “Have your luggage and passports ready and follow the green line to customs and then to immigration…”
Until then, as we hear in the next track, Time“Nobody told you when to run away, you missed the starting gun” and “Hold on in quiet desperation…time is up, song is over…”
Guest singer Clare Torry then provides an emotional, screaming vocal performance throughout The grand entrance in heavenan apt metaphor for Herman’s reaction when he was abandoned on her flight to another location by the great golfer from Jupiter (Jupiter, Florida, where Woods still lives).
From his point of view, the first title on page 2 conveys well that Herman will be lucky enough to get hold of Woods’ fortune. Money: “Money, go back. I’m fine Jack, keep your hands off my pile… and don’t give me that do-gooder bullshit.”
the next title us and themcontains pertinent lyrics to what is currently unfolding in the South Florida court system: “Haven’t you heard, it’s a battle of words.”
Ah, but of course; The former lovers continue to fight over each other’s files this spring, and Herman is suing the superstar golfer and his trust for $30 million.
After the purely psychedelic instrumental A color you likeThe album reaches its double musical and lyrical climax in the fantastic songs put together brain damage And darkness.
At first, that seems to tell the story of where things are going in this epic celebrity court battle brain damage:
“The madman is on the lawn… The madman is in the hallway… The newspaper keeps their folded faces to the ground, and every day the newsboy brings more…
“You lock the door. And throw away the key. There’s someone in my head, but it’s not me.”

Finally, darkness lyrically captures the intended mood and essence of the album as described by Pink Floyd bassist/lyricist Roger Waters in 2003:
“All the pressures, difficulties and questions that arise in a person’s life and create fear have a universal appeal as they bring with them a number of important psychological and emotional issues.”
Everything under the sun, we conclude, is in harmony. But the sun is eclipsed by a moon.
