Well, it's clearly a great song, but I would take Comfortably Numb, Wish You Were Here, Breathe, or Dogs over it any day.

Goodbye Blue Sky is so pretty. I think my Pink Floyd top 10 looks like this now:

1. Wish You Were Here
2. Breathe
3. Comfortably Numb
4. Fearless
5. Goodbye Blue Sky
6. Eclipse
7. Any Colour You Like
8. Pillow Of Winds
9. Dogs
10. Summer '68

SHEEEEEEEEEEEEP.

That's my main issue with the Desert Island Game. People stress continuity or flow over "the best songs" because they don't fit in the playlist.

If you're stuck on a desert island with 160 minutes worth of music, would you care more about the flow than the quality of the songs?

Sure Echoes is one of their best songs, but could you listen to that as your only Floyd song for 15 years? 20 years? 50?

That philosophy is why you won the last two times out and why I'm kicking your ass next time out.

Really, I agree with you 100%. I couldn't stand only having 20-25 songs to listen to for the rest of my life. It's just madness.

I partly agree with this when it comes to Desert Island. Having what you consider are the best songs is the most important thing, although if you can not only accomplish that but sequence them in such a way that it really is incredible to listen to, then I think it's even better.

I have Echoes on my Prog Island list, but obviously it's a bit different with that game. I would never put it on my Desert Island list because it's length would take away too many other things.

Good point, I know I try to make the Side A-Side B type playlists, with a beginning, middle, and end, and you have to choose songs accordingly. When you're using bands you love, it's easier to do it.

I'd use Sheep but it's about 10 minutes long, so I used Nobody Home, my favorite Floyd/Waters-centric song no one else likes, which is only about 3 minutes long.

Nobody Home, eh? It's a good tune, not sure how it would fit out of context...

I chose Fearless.

Good choice. I had Fearless on the last one.

When you create flow, mood and so on you’re only adding to the songs. Beneath all of that I think people really love every song they put on their lists. There is so much you can do with your playlist while still including your favorite tracks. Every thing from continuity to diversity is created by how great the songs are. So when people say that someone has great this or that, they are actually still judging on who has the best songs and how they used them.

More specifically, it's...

Interpol "Untitled" ---> Nick Drake "Pink Moon" ---> Fearless

I like the flow there. I couldn't get a good follow-up song for Fearless, but the songs before it sound great.

Back to Pink Floyd; I must say that, if there is a single guitar solo that can actually make me cry, it's the Comfortably Numb solo (I think Edge's solo in Kite comes close also). It just says so much, especially following all of the depression and mental collapse before it. It's an emotional release that says just as much as 1,000 words ever could. The Pulse version is amazing too, if I recall correctly.

Is anyone interested in picking this up upon release? As much as I dislike Piper, I never purchased it and, if the price is right, I may give it a second chance. The bonus tracks sound cool.

I have the album, and I also have most of those early singles from the bonus disc that came with the Shine On box set, so I don't know if I'll pick it up or not. Although the fact that it is newly remastered intrigues me.

I might do so. I'm REALLY disappointed that Vegetable Man and Scream Thy Last Scream aren't going to be included on the bonus disc, though. Would have liked an official release of those two. They're great Syd songs.

I see what you're saying here. What I'm trying to do with this playlist is have that sort of continuity, maybe almost a story, throughout the whole thing. The hardest part is finding the appropriate ending, it has to be that cathartic release everyone's been waiting for. I'm pretty close on settling on The Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want"

And phanan, "Nobody Home" kind of works with my playlist, but I am close to switching it up with something like "One of These Days", "The Great Gig in the Sky" (a very popular choice by everyone it seems), or "Brain Damage". I wish I could include "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" as the same song.

Purple Rain is an amazing closer too. The only problem is that it's 8 minutes long and the edited version is rubbish.
