LOL, this is easy.

Bye, Absolutely Curtains. You're one of the worst Floyd songs ever recorded!

I dunno...I haven't listened to this thing in ages, and there aren't any terrible songs on it. I'll take Absolutely Curtains this time, because it doesn't really go anywhere.

Free Four rocks!

Having just listened to the album again, I wish I had waited. Absolutely Curtains deserved a unanimous boot.

That it does! I love how the song sounds so upbeat and happy, while the lyrics are the complete opposite. "You are the angel of death! And I am the dead man's son!"

This album is lovely. I don't know why people are so indifferent to it.

Oh, and I simply cannot decide which song I want to win. Right now, I'm torn over Wot's...Uh The Deal, Free Four, Childhood's End, and Stay.

Yeah, I'm glad I listened to it earlier, for the first time in a while, cuz Absolutely Curtains is just awful.
