Definitely and without a doubt Fearless. Great song but the other two are superior. Very un-Pink Floydian song, Fearless. Might have to download the Never Walk Alone song.

Echoes has gotsa win.

Fearless. A "One of These Days"/"Echoes" showdown ought to be exceedingly interesting.

Shit, this is where it gets difficult. I can't decide whether I want Fearless or One Of These Days to go... Fearless is a brilliant, perfectly crafted piece of music. The lyrics are also wonderful. One Of These Days, on the other hand, is an instrumental Floyd classic. The two delayed basses, the driving drums (who else air drums along to it?!), that slide guitar... I also love the story behind the title of the song.

This is too hard! I think I'll end up giving One Of These Days the boot...

For me Fearless just simply isn't that good.

Well I'm not going to feel bad if Fearless goes down to one of these two killer tracks. But I still think it's the best composition on the album. And that ending with the crowd singing just sounds SO AMAZING on a great stereo or set of headphones.

I just don't know what to vote for to give Fearless a better chance...

Cheers Dave!

I just don't get the huge fascination for Fearless. It's good, but it's not that good. One of These Days is one of the very few instrumentals at six minutes I can listen to and not get bored. It's an awesome song.

That's a shame.

Well only this year have I extended my musical tastes, and only as far as five Floyd albums, four Bowie albums and four Beatles albums.

Take Low for instance - love most of it, but I find Warszawa to the be the worst track, a view I don't think most will share.

Oh man, I can't decide. Fearless or Echoes? One Of These Days is the clear winner for me. I'll have to give the tracks another listen or two before voting.

18:14 to about 19:00 in Echoes.

The best music I have ever heard in my entire life.

And make it Fearless, son ^^
