Despite completing the song after only a handful of 1972 road tests for the project that would become Dark Side of the Moon, Pink Floyd didn’t actually record “Eclipse” (or “End,” as it was still known) until nearly a year later. They also completed “Brain Damage” during the final rounds of studio work at London’s Abbey Road Studios, taping it at the same time to ensure a smooth transition. With only Wright’s Hammond organ swelling to the foreground between “Brain Damage” becoming “Eclipse,” some fans consider it to be a single two-part song. Radio stations most often play them together, as well. But Waters’ litany can, and does, stand on its own.
