I thought Gilmour had a hand in that song. edit, according to wikipedia, he did. Whatever the case, one of the band's worst, if the not the very worst, songs.

I knew this much discussion in the Pink Floyd thread could only mean bad times for me.

Really? Worst song?


I think its one of their best rockers. Of course I have fond memories from the movie when the groupies come in and blow security and the roadies for backstage passes. Good times!

It's cock rock. They were above that. (And if it's "part of the story" that proves my point about the story taking precedence over the music)

Young Lust has an awesome riff and is a legitimate moment of fun/humor in The Wall. There are worse songs on that album, let alone the Gilmour-led albums.

Well it is cock rock. No doubt. But, it is autobiographical too. Roger's mother did tell him at one point in his life that he needed a dirty woman. Obviously, The Wall is a concept/story album. And what good rock star doesn't get his swerve on with a groupie? The story didn't take precedence over the music. It worked in conjunction with it. Did I really need to tell you that?

I know it's fashionable around here to shit on any Waters-centric albums, but Jesus Christ, MLoR and Division Bell are so vapid lyrically and unfocused musically to place them beneath any Floyd album but Ummagumma. Both of those would have been better served as instrumental albums a la The Endless River than anything else. I challenge anyone to sit down and simply read the lyrics to Division Bell in particular without wincing innumerable times.

And Atom Heart Mother better than The Wall? 2/3 of AHM's runtime is pure wankery. A guy actually reads the ingredients of his breakfast. It's amusing and shit but it's little more than a curio in the scope of their wider catalogue. That period between Saucerful and AHM had some serious growing pains for the band.
All of this.

And using Young Lust's lyrics (easily the worst on The Wall) to counter this is pretty weak. It may be my least favorite song (or second worst after Vera) on the album too, but I really enjoy almost everything on there a lot.

I can't believe multiple people have nominated Sorrow as best PF song. That's just madness.

The Division Bell isn't as embarrassing and dated as AMLOR (talk about an overuse of backup singers), but it's pretty lifeless and the tunes aren't as memorable.

I cannot believe I'm reading honest claims that Young Lust is a worse song than Several Species..., Seamus/Mademoiselle Nobs or The Grand Vizier's Garden Party. How high are you people?

Reason had a number of good songs, but DB seemed to have more of a Pink Floyd feel to it. I remember just being excited to hear new Pink Floyd. I used to listen to DB everyday leading all the way up to when I saw them on tour that Summer. The second half of the album was stronger than the first half.
