On 11/2/98, all that fans touched, ate, begged, borrowed, stole, created, and destroyed was in tune as Phish eclipsed the sun with their mind-bending, surprise cover of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. At this point in the set, it’s safe to say that everyone knew this song was coming, but it still thrilled the half-sold-out ‘E’ Centre to no end. Easily the most climactic and dramatic song of the entire album (and this show), “Eclipse” sums up not just the album and its themes, but literally “everything under the sun”; proving first and foremost that Pink Floyd knew precisely how to seal up an album.



One of the greatest moments of Phish’s performance that night was definitely the almost matter-of-fact segue from “Eclipse” back into “Harpua” to finish off the set, a seamless movement helped immeasurably by the fact that both songs are in the same key. What a cab ride!

All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All you feel

All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All you save

All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy
Beg, borrow or steal

All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say

All that you eat
Everyone you meet
All that you slight
Everyone you fight

All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
And everything under the sun is in tune
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

There is no dark side of the moon really
Matter of fact it's all dark
