Pink Floyd Survivor: THE FINALS: Round 1 (with poll)

Well, this certainly hasn't been as long or as prolific as the Beatles survivor, but it's been sensational all the same.

And now we have finally reached the finals.

Last round, Eugene swung his axe, cos he didn't want to See Emily Play anymore.

Votes
See Emily Play - 9
Careful With That Axe, Eugene - 5
Total votes - 14

Meaning See Emily Play becomes our 131st eliminant (is that a word??) and CWATE becomes our 15th finalist.

Here are the competitors, fighting it out for supremacy.


Piper at the Gates of Dawn - Lucifer Sam


A Saucerful of Secrets - Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun


Music From the Film More - Cymbaline


Ummagumma - Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Moving With a Pict


Atom Heart Mother - Summer '68


Meddle - Echoes


Obscured by Clouds - Free Four

Sorry about that first one people, my computer stuffed up. Here's the real shit!!!

Gotta be a vote for Several Species here.

A 'Best Pink Floyd Song' poll, and there's no Shine on You Crazy Diamond. Some would think that that make this poll null and void.

Not sure what I want to win yet actually.... though I'm leaning strongly towards Dogs, or Wish You Were Here.


Cymbaline is awesome!

Several Species is full of interesting sounds and awesomely weird lyrics and all kinds of hidden messages! I Ummagumma for it's weirdness.

This is pretty avant garde isn't it?

Have you ever tried slowing the song down to it's original speed? If not, try it! It's hilarious and loads of fun.

Several Species isn't horrible... there's one bit that's pretty catchy actually. "Wee!! C-c-c-come back! Wee!! C-c-c-come back!" or whatever it is.

I love the Cymbaline chorus.

How could anybody vote for Cymbaline? It's easily one of the Floyd's best songs.

Now, Several Species will fairly deservedly get the boot here, but frankly, I find it more interesting to play than The Final Cut. Words cannot describe how insufferably dull I find every song on The Final Cut to be. I would vote to eliminate that entire album combined before voting for Several Species. It's PF's ATYCLB.
