Space-Dye Vest

“Space-Dye Vest” is the eleventh and final song from American progressive rock/metal band Dream Theater’s 1994 album, Awake. The song was written entirely by the keyboardist Kevin Moore, and indeed its demo featured Moore on vocals. It is structured around a dark, brooding duet between Moore playing the piano and vocalist James LaBrie. The rest of the band kick in for a dramatic outro, fading out until Moore ends the song with the piano passage that opened the song. The song is interspersed with samples from A Room with a View, The Fifth Estate, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and a news commentary by Jim Hill during the O. J. Simpson freeway chase.
