Sensible voting last round people, great stuff

So far this has panned out just as I'd hoped. One of These Days now. Terrific song, I just can't go past Echoes.

As important as "Echoes" is to both Floyd's development and legacy, I have to endorse "One of These Days" as the winner. Both are great, great songs, but OoTD has a maniacal energy about it that is seldom found in any band's catalogue.

Echoes is a piece of work for sure, but I can only listen to it when I'm in the mood, you know?

23 minutes worth of depression.

Two completey irrevelant questions, sorry. 1. Did Raving and Drooling turn into Pigs or Sheep? and 2. Who sings the first and third verses to Time? It's Dave right?

1. It became Sheep.
2. Rick sings the parts that begin "tired of lying in the sunshine" and "every day is getting shorter"- and, I might add, does so quite ably. Dave sings the rest.

Echoes FTW. Kind of an insult to Waters to vote what is essentially an instrumental as the best song on the album.

I'm sure Roger will be okay, The Wall and The Final Cut are nearly his solo records.

Cheers, I thought so. Rick's voice is so awesome. Echoes, Time, Us and Them...

Absolutely true. Couldn't have said it better myself.

I could live with either song here, both killers from my early days. But Echoes was more likely than the flip side to be listened to when we were in Floyd mode, so I gotta vote for OOTD. And Echoes is loaded with so many things that I love about PF, for me it's right up there with my favorite PF songs.

But One of These Days is almost as good. I guess there are gonna be more tough votes like this one coming up. Can't go wrong either way

Think I'll go look at my Meddle lp now (gatefold)

OOTD

I do love both. Never forget a few years ago at a local metal club and they stuck on OOTD on the stereo - fantastic, everyone was on the dancefloor for it!

However, Echoes for me is just simply superb

Echoes is the finest song on Meddle, the best Pink Floyd song ever and one of the true masterpieces of prog-rock.

One of These Days rocks, but I have to vote it out.

One of these days I'm going to cut all of you non-Echoes voters into little pieces.
