Gotta be Welcome to the Machine for me here. Still a terrific song though. Just shows how strong this album really is. It is probably their best album. Very veryy good.

Wish You Were Here for the win.

Well, this was easy. Welcome To The Machine's the least memorable song.

Have A Cigar for the win!

I can't believe that Us and Them lost to Time. For shame, people. For shame.

Welcome To The Machine is a great song, but the others are even better.

Can't go with you on that one. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts I-V) should win.

Depending on the day, there's a good chance I'd agree that SOYCD I-V is better. But Have A Cigar is a strong personal favourite, so I'll go for it in the tournament. Whatever the case, the two of them are both in my PF top five.

My God, this is an incredible album. I have to vote for "Have a Cigar" to leave, despite its brilliance. Here's looking to Shine On I-V as the victor.

Really, you can't go wrong with any of these songs winning this thing. The entire album is my personal favorite and utterly incredible.

Welcome to the Machine. It's boring as hell. I'd rank the album like so:

1. Wish You Were Here
2. SOYCD (6-9)
3. Have A Cigar
4. SOYCD (1-5)
5. Welcome To The Machine
