Not positive this is the right forum, but the only other one I could think of was The Pit, and I doubt a Pit poll would be a good idea.

Anyway, simple matter of settling a bet between myself and a friend. Which Gilmour solo on DSOTM is better; Time or Money?
Hey you! Yes, you! Buy my music! It's cool and stuff!

Time by far. I haven't listened to the two in a while, but the Money solo is very deceptive. It seems great, but the fact is that all of its momentum is created by the saxophone solo right before it.

For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

Both great, but something about the context of the song and Gilmour's signature tone in "Time" is orgasmic.

It really does give me chills every time I hear it.

Money is pretty textbook Gilmour, but really Time is just something else.
But really, Gilmour's best solo is on Dogs, but that isn't on Dark Side.

Comfortably Numb, but in all honesty I shall go listen to the two songs before deciding because it's been a while since I heard Time and I always associate Money with that bass line, his singing, the sax solo and that change at the beginning.

Edit: Ok I was halfway through the Time solo when I decided no matter how good the Money solo is it can't beat that. Both ****ing great songs but that solo if incredible.

Take it to the Pink Floyd thread.


How to achieve Frank Zappa's guitar tone:

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.
