Pink Floyd Best Song Survivor: Announcement Thread!!!

Howdy there peoples, we have just decided over in the Pink Floyd thread to hold a Pink Floyd Best Song Survivor, starting early next week. There is enough support to well, support it, with the thread now standing at over 400 replies and over 30 posters in the thread as well. This competition will be a good one, as there is no clear winner in the Floyd catalogue, so it will be very interesting. The other benefit is that a lot of the Floyd’s songs are quite lengthy, and so therefore some albums are shorter in terms of songs, meaning we won’t be here for a year. As far as I know there were no others planned, we had someone from the Radiohead contingent outline there was no Radiohead survivor in planning (Lemel said he wanted ‘dibs’ on a Radiohead survivor next). So here’s the plan, enjoy, discuss any issues, whatever in this thread.

Fair concept, but I'm not a hardcore fan, I'd prefer Gin Blossom survivor.

Summer '68 for the win!

... I'm being serious too.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

OK, I'm gonna have to study up -- I know very little from the first 7 albums before Dark Side.

But I love that song See Emily Play.

Have we ever done an R.E.M. song survivor? They have a good long catalog full of hits.

There would have to be more than 3 songs for that though.

Floyd song survivor, cool.

The winner should be Sheep.
