DSOTM performed in its entirety, bitches.
Of course, I had to start getting into Pink Floyd the moment Roger Waters leaves Australia. Go figure.

I am ABSOLUTELY loving Time at the moment. The vocals, lyrics, guitar, drums, everything is superb... and then WHAM! it's back to Breathe...

I also love Brain Damage/Eclipse, Eclipse is my most played song on itunes.

I downloaded Learning to Fly. Not bad. I also have Wish You Were Here. Terrific.

Anyone have a colour they like?

That's a shame. This may very well be his last tour (unless he FINALLY releases his new album ), which is why I'm travelling to see him for a second time.

Go download the whole Animals album and you will be hooked on Pink Floyd for life.

Just another example of why my music taste is far better than my friends':

We're playing Poker and I throw DSOTM on. It gets to Great Gig in the Sky. My mate quips, "Can we turn this shit off? It sounds like some pregnant bitch whining."

And I kid you not. I came so very close to smacking him over the head and kicking him out, but since he's like four times my size I thought better of it.

This time.

Psh, Animals is a thousand times better than Meddle.

WYWH is also a great choice, COBL. My third favourite Floyd album. You've got what is easily one of the greatest Pink Floyd songs ever on that album - Shine On You Crazy Diamond. The first five parts are brilliant. So are the last four parts. And they all sandwich Welcome To The Machine (synth heaven), Have A Cigar (more synth heaven) and Wish You Were Here.

And tell your friends to stuff off, their opinions don't matter.

I've always wondered about Shine On You Crazy diamond. Is it

1. Shine On, You Crazy Diamond (as in shine on, mate)
2. Shine On You - Crazy Diamond (as in the light is on you)
or is it just plain old
3. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (as in five words thrown together?)

It's number three but in the sense of someone saying it so forcefully and quick that there is no pause.

Echoes is brilliant, yes, but it's one song! The big three on Animals are capable of trouncing the rest of Meddle with their hands tied behind their backs.

I think COBL was asking about the actual context of the phrase. In that case, it would be number one, as 'you crazy diamond' refers to Syd.

Short history lesson for COBL, just in case he's not familiar - Syd Barrett was the original lead guitar player, songwriter, and lead singer of Pink Floyd. He had schizophrenia and sadly went off the deep end shortly after the first album (Piper At The Gates Of Dawn) had been released. The band had to bring in David Gilmour to replace him at that point. Roger Waters wrote most of the lyrics for WYWH in dedication to Syd. These lyrics point out the issues of quickly rising to fame, the dark side of the music business, and most of all, a longing for the old friend who had got caught up in it. Shine On You Crazy Diamond reflects a lot of that.

"Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!
Nobody knows where you are, how near or how far.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Pile on many more layers and I'll be joining you there.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
And we'll bask in the shadow of yesterday's triumph,
sail on the steel breeze.
Come on you boy child, you winner and loser,
come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine!"




Shine on, Syd.

Thanks very much for that! I had heard about Syd Barret, and that he'd left or something, and that Have a Cigar was an aattck towards him? I think that's a misunderstanding. Never knew he had scizophrenia though.



And to reiterate, Anyone have a colour that you like personally?
