Have a Cigar here. Terrific song, but inferior to the other three. Having said that, there's not much that would be superior to the other three.

As Lemonboy said one day, Have a Cigar "has a nice smarminess to it which is rather endearing". Now fuck me if I know what that means, but it seems to make sense. Great vocals too.

SOYCD VI-IX is, to me, clearly the weakest of the four tracks left. Frankly, that's amazing, as SOYCD VI-IX is incredible in its own right. I guess, to use U2 terms, it's Gloria to a pack of Bads (I mean that simply in terms of quality as I perceive it, not in terms of any sonic resemblance).

All of these songs are brilliant. This is too hard.

I want to protect SOC(6-9), so Have A Cigar it is.

I remember that. In hindsight, it makes no friggin sense, but that's not important anyway.

Wish You Were Here is probably the band's most annoying song. It has to go.

Exactly. But if I must choose, it will be "Have a Cigar."

Are you joking? If anything, WYWH is one of the band's best songs. Besides, PF also recorded Ummagumma. Dunno how you could get much more annoying or pointless than that.
