Oh well... agree to disagree.

I adore Wish You Were Here. One of their most beautiful songs along with A Pillow Of Winds.

Are you including the absolutely gorgeous Breathe (reprise) in that?

I'm tempted to create an Empty Spaces appreciation thread. The live version kills.

My favourite Pink Floyd song ever, It's so emotional and poignant.
