    Who Digs Pink Floyd?



    So what is your favorite Pink Floyd song?

    If you cannot just pick a song, how about an album?

    Hello.
    Is there anybody in there?
    Just nod if you can hear me.
    Is there anyone home?

    Come on, now.
    I hear youre feeling down.
    Well I can ease your pain,
    Get you on your feet again.

    Relax.
    I need some information first.
    Just the basic facts:
    Can you show me where it hurts?

    There is no pain, you are receding.
    A distant ships smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I cant hear what youre sayin.
    When I was a child I had a fever.
    My hands felt just like two balloons.
    Now I got that feeling once again.
    I cant explain, you would not understand.
    This is not how I am.
    I have become comfortably numb.

    Ok.
    Just a little pinprick. [ping]
    Therell be no more --aaaaaahhhhh!
    But you may feel a little sick.

    Can you stand up?
    I do believe its working. good.
    Thatll keep you going for the show.
    Come on its time to go.

    There is no pain, you are receding.
    A distant ships smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I cant hear what youre sayin.
    When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
    Out of the corner of my eye.
    I turned to look but it was gone.
    I cannot put my finger on it now.
    The child is grown, the dream is gone.
    I have become comfortably numb.

    For me, "Wish You Were Here" edges out "Dark Side Of The Moon".

    Love Pink Floyd, The Wall in particular. Got so lucky that I was able to see Roger Waters in concert at Roskilde Festival here in Denmark last year, it was truly a great experience! He played some of the songs from The Wall, some of his own stuff, and THE ENTIRE Dark Side Of The Moon album. Encredible! Had speakers installed all around the audience, which gave a great surround-sound experience.

    I am a pretty big Pink Floyd fan, particularly The Wall album (Wish You Were Here and Dark Side of the Moon are great too).

    If you want to hear a pretty cool PF cover, check out Dar Williams' (w/Ani DeFranco backing) cover of "Comfortably Numb").

    I know I'm going to alienate myself and lose credibility with several of you, but.....

    Pink Floyd is THE most overrated band of anytime leading up to (though not including) the boy band era.

    No, I'd have to say that distinction belongs to The Grateful Dead.

    I love Floyd; I was lucky to see them in Oakland back in 87'; "Delicate Sound of Thunder Tour". For anyone who hasn't seen them live, I highly recommend the DVD "Pulse", it is very excellent.

    Sorry Hub, but if you watch "Pulse" , I think you might change your mind.

    I love Pink Floyd, and with all due respect to Hubison, Comfortably Numb is may favorite Floyd song.

    Little known fact, toni tennille (of the captain and tennille fame) sings backup vocals on dark side of the moon.

    Wow, I did not know she was on that album. Nothing like "Musk Rat Love".

    I know, I know. I'm not even saying my opinion is right. Maybe they're the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I just don't "get them".

    Not a fan, and no interest in listening to anything of theirs that is not played on the Oldies Station.

    I was never a fan of that genre of music. Too set in my ways to change now.

    I also cannot tolerate or figure out the inner city noise that seems to be necessary as soundtracks for almost every commercial on during NFL games now.

    I realize a lot of people do like it and more power to them, but it is a real turn-off to me.

    By the way, is anyone else here ticked off that the music we like that is played on the radio is called the 'Oldies" station? I call Buddy Holly an oldie, not the Stones (although Keith Richards looks like a mummy).
