TIME is adjudged the Best Pink Floyd Song

Well, according to a bunch of interferers anyway.

The fabric of Time left the other competitiors feeling a bit Comfortably Numb.

Votes
Comfortably Numb - 18
Time - 15

BEST PINK FLOYD SONG
15. Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving With a Pict
=14. Cymbaline
=14. Lucifer Sam
12. Free Four
11. The Final Cut
10. Sorrow
=9. Summer '68
=9. Careful With That Axe, Eugene
7. High Hopes
6. Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun
5. Echoes
4. Wish You Were Here
3. Dogs
2. Comfortably Numb
1. TIME


It has been a pleasure to run, a great deal of thanks go to Dave, who picked up the slack when my computer shitted itself numerous times.

This was a good result, Time is a legendary song and it's a testament to Pink Floyd that this result was never going to be predictable, a biiit unlike A Day in the Life...

Thanks to all those Pink Floyd fans who competed, it's you folk who have got me into this amazing band and it will be a life-long fascination one would think.

Apologies to Shine On You Crazy Diamond from a few of us here as well...

Thanks all!!

While by no means the biggest pink floyd fan ever (not that I don't like them, I do) I'm slightly disappointed... not that it's not a good song, but, it's not my favorite

What is mate?

Can I just alert to everyone that ANY Colour You Like has cracked my Floyd top ten... and I think Shine On might be number one now.

1. Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Parts I - V)
2. Time
3. Comfortably Numb
4. Dogs
5. Wish You Were Here
6. Us and Them
7. Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Parts VI - IX)
8. Any Colour You Like
9. Eclipse
10. Sheep

Something like that.

I just went back and looked at the WYWH final, and what a joke of a round that was. Shine On should have won. The amount of votes proves that a lot of casual fans figured into that one. WYWH here excellent, but Shine On is Floyd.

COBL, I see you actually voted off Shine On at that moment.

Others who were brave enough to admit voting it off were LemonMelon, XHendrix24, and SeattleVertigo. And while they didn't specify what they voted for, both LMP and Lazarus made pro-WYWH comments, which lead me to believe they voted for it as well.

I'm not suprised Time won, but CN was and is my top choice. I'm happy my top 2 fave Floyd songs made the final though.

Yeah, I did. Shine may be the quintessential Floyd song, but Wish is the better song period. It's an all-time classic. I mean, I think Redemption Song is the best thing Bob Marley ever did, even if it's not really "reggae" and indicative of his career.

I didn't vote in any of the rounds that I can remember because I am by no means an expert on Pink Floyd or anything (for a while there I thought WYWH was on The Wall ) but I have always loved Time so I am pleased with these results...

We're obviously nitpicking here, as both are all-time classics. I disagree with your view that WYWH is better, though.

It's like saying that One or WOWY is better than Bad, which is quite possibly U2's quintessential song. Interesting that Bad never wins a survivor, either...

Shine On ought to have won, but the vagaries of the competition prevented it. Somehow, Earth continues to turn.

Thanks to COBL for running this comp.

We need someone to start Led Zeppelin now.

Time is a great song. I'm disappointed that it won, but what the hell. It could be worse.

Thanks for running this, Danny.
