So I'm planning on listening to Piper sometime today. After this I need Relics and More. I think I listened to The Final Cut but I can't remember all that well. I've been listening to too much Zappa for me to remember anything else.
[QUOTE=Kyle v2;31651140][b]GET THEM ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!![/b] [img]http://i.somethingawful.com/forumsystem/emoticons/emot-colbert.gif[/img][/QUOTE] Yeah, might as well.
Quick question: Every time I hear Echoes, and the part beginning with the line "Strangers passing in the street, by chance do separate glances meet", I imagine such a scene occurring in an Industrial Revolution-era London. Like the knd you see in Sherlock Holmes. I think this is an oddity and I realize that everyone has a different experience, but does anyone else do this?
This was supposed to be on the live disc of Ummagumma, but it was cut for an unknown reason. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLLIe0I9kjs[/media]
I wonder what happened to all the lost Floyd demos and unofficial recordings.

[QUOTE=Raiken;31664362]I wonder what happened to all the lost Floyd demos and unofficial recordings.[/QUOTE] As far as I know they're archived

So just now I started listening to The wall for the first time and it was really wierd because I could swear I'd heard the first song (in the flesh?) before, just different. It plagued me all the way through and I could not think why because I was SURE I'd never heard the song before, at least not performed by pink floyd so I started thinking and realized Dream Theater made a cover of it on their album A change of seasons. I've been listening to Pink Floyd for years and not realizing it. Mind blown.
My mother played Shine On You Crazy Diamond when I was a little bitty kid. I didn't know what it was at the time. Some time later I am discovering Pink Floyd. I still don't recognize the song, have not heard it since Mom played it. I go on Wikipedia, find a 30 second sample of a song called Shine On You Crazy Diamond. I remember thinking it had a long name. The sample was of the four note guitar theme. I shat myself with nostalgia and sudden realization.
For some reason, I have this distinct memory of going with my dad to Blockbuster Video (back when movie rentals was a thriving business) when I was about 5 or 6 and I saw an interesting-looking vhs cover of the movie up for rent. So I grabbed it and brought it up to my dad, and he said "no, no way. That's not for kids." It was Pink Floyd's The Wall and it would be much much later until I would actually discover their music. At that point, I didn't even know what the hell the Floyd was or what The Wall was about. The cover just caught my eye. I can only imagine what would've happened if my dad had rented that for me to watch at that age. :v: [editline]11th August 2011[/editline] I dunno, does this look like something a normal 5-6 year old would be interested in?

I wouldn't be interested. Kinda creepy for a little kid, iwo.

Guess the Pink Floyd songs: Hooooo oooo, oooooo, oooo ooo oo oooo *insert first bar of Fade to Black by Metallica*

Just checked my last.fm, I have 599 plays for The Wall :v:

Damn, I cringed. I hope that thing was already broken beforehand.
Looks like it. The side was completely bored out
Nothing more grim-sounding than a hammond organ: [video=youtube;thGAdXPB_xM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thGAdXPB_xM[/video] I like this version of the song a lot because Rick's keyboarding really shines. Adds to the depression of the solo.
I love Comfortably Numb a bit more now :unsmith: That was awesome. I truly wish Rick were still alive for the Roger Waters the Wall tour
