Money. One of the real low points post-Obscured By Clouds.

I can't believe On The Run is going to get the boot. Anyone who saw Roger Waters live on his last tour would gain a new appreciation for it.

Yeah I have to agree with Screwtape and vote Money. It's a good song but can get a bit boring in some of those long drawn out parts. It's actually really hard voting anything off here. On The Run is amazing with all those sound affects at the perfect moments. And it's not overly long like Money.

And Axver, you have to be truly alone in your opinion about Great Gig. That is not painful wailing, it is orgasmic and beautiful singing! It's hard to sing what Clare Torry pulled off!

Hideous wailing? It's called a vocal solo. The woman is right on key the entire song, and nails her parts. It's used to convey fear and emotion without lyrics. Philistines.

On the Run, although it works beautifully in the scope of the album. Here's looking to Time as the winner.

On The Run. I like it, but something has to go.

And put me squarely in the "I love it!" category for The Great Gig In The Sky.

Any Colour You Like. It's a good bridge and essential to the album, but not as a stand-alone; same with On the Run.

Great Gig in the Sky is beautiful, maybe one of my favorite vocalizations.

:speechless:

I don't know if this is more absurd than what Zootlesque said about Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones yesterday, but I think we have a new record with numbers 1 and 2 in the list of "Most Ridiculous Posts in Interference History (non-PLEBA/EYKIW)" coming up in consecutive days.

DAMN IT I'M NOT SUPPOSED TO BE ONLINE. But I'm waiting for psychology lecture notes and practise questions to print, so...

I voted for On The Run. It's an amazing track when it's played live (the first image in my sig will explain why) but it's merely an interesting experiment on the album.

Next to go for me will be GGITS. I enjoy it very much, beautiful piece of music, but I'm afraid it doesn't hold up well against the rest of the album. From that point onwards, it will almost be impossible to vote.

I can't believe people are voting for Any Colour You Like already! That's one of the coolest Floyd instrumentals.

My printing is done now. Bye.

Pffft! It's called opinion and it's all over the place if you look.

That doesn't mean opinions can't be crazy as hell.

You are entitled to your opinion no matter how wrong you are.
