Echoes here... it doesn't quite match up to the remaining four.

I still don't know what I want to win here... if Shine One somehow made a reappearence I might even vote for that!

Thought I'd add in // Breathe Reprise in case people forgot that once the "Time" part of Time ends, it's not over. Oh no. You get another verse of Breathe. indulgence.

Wish You Were Here, doesn't stand up to the epic feel of the other songs. Echoes should win. It is the ultimate Floyd song.

Echoes. It's not quite as memorable as the other four or Summer '68 or Sorrow.

Actually, Shine On is, but alas, it's not here.

But even then, Dogs, Numb, and Time beat it.

Tough between this and Wish You Were Here. Doesn't matter which of the two go next, so I'll go for Echoes.

Dogs, although it is difficult to vote against it.

Nothing can beat that transition moment between Time and Breathe (reprise). I hope it wins.

WYWH. Hoping to save Echoes, but it looks like my vote won't matter much.

Dogs.

Holy shit, I may not listen to Echoes much, but it blows my mind 7 ways to Sunday each time I listen.

There is a 45-second bit in Echoes (around the 18 minute mark) which is some of the very best music I've ever heard...

Now i listened to the songs today, and it's very tough next round. But I think, now, i want comfortably Numb to win, which surprises me actually...
