You ask and you shall recieve!!!

Pink Floyd has won the honor of having their very own dedicated thread. I think all will turn out well considering the amount of threads I have seen about Pink Floyd in the last month or so.

READ BELOW!!
(the pink font fits in this case )

  • Do not spam. If you spam, warnings and bans will ensue.

  • Please stay on task. Topics must be relevant to the general idea of the thread, PINK FLOYD!!

  • Keep ALL Pink Floyd threads out of the forum and keep them in here. Any Floyd threads outside the "ONLY" thread will be deleted or closed.

  • There is no real need for polls so please do not PM Bill or I asking to start a new thread because you want to include a poll. The answer will be NO!!

  • If you have any questions or complaints regarding this thread, PM either Bill or I and we will help you.


That is about it. Let the topics begin

I think a reunion would be the best thing that ever happened in my lifetime, but people talk. Every so often a Floyd reunion rumor gets started. I don't know though. I know they keep in touch to a certain extent. Ever since Wish You Were Here, the band has been devided between the "musicians" and the "architects". Gilmour and Wright and Waters and Mason. So Wright still plays with Gilmour (Meltdown Festival) and Mason plays with Waters (In the Flesh Tour).

I don't know, but I'm hoping with everything I got, man.

If Pink Floyd do have a reunion, I wouldn't mind trading my life to see them live.

Chances are, the rumor is not true, but I'm still gonna keep my fingers crossed

Well Pink Floyd is my favorite band (along with the SP, and Beatles), my friend was really into them when we were in 8th grade but I found their music pretty bland, 3 years and 10 albums later my views have more than changed. I still dont have a few, but there always seem to be something else to buy at the time.

I doubt they will ever have a ful reunion, just cuz david and richard want to kill roger, and that makes me sad cuz they used to be good friends, but its good that at least some of them are talking to each other. BTW Pink Floyd is my favourite band besides AC/DC.

There are too many great ones for me to have a favorite song or album.

I've seen Roger waters when I was in 6th grade, and he did a lot of Floyd stuff. It's actually the best concert I've ever been to. I would love to see a reunion tour.

I got to see Waters on his In The Flesh Tour when he came to Portland OR. Lucky for me its the show they recorded for the DVD. So if any of you have it, I'm on the floor level. Haha.

Oh, and Cirrus Minor, I actually love the album Atom Heart Mother, for the three songs in the middle. One of my favorite songs of all time is Fat Old Sun. I think The Atom Heart Mother suite was important for them for experimental purposes because it was a precurser to what they did with Meddle. Namely Echoes.

Yeah, Fat Old Sun is a beautiful song and the only one I really got into while listening to it, it sounds like maybe something off the White Album or Abbey Road--I should give it another listen, man Gilmour's guitar is really something else, it just sings....

There's a live version of that song floating around somewhere from a BBC show. It's like twelve min. long and its really cool to listen to. It was right after Meddle, so it has an echoes feel to it.

Oh and if you listen to the bells at the beginning you'll find they're the same bells at the beginning of High Hopes. A little useless trivia for you.

^money, i like both songs, but money was the first of their songs that i had ever heard, i was like 5 how i remember that, i dont know. i didnt know what it was but i do remember listening to it. anyway, real glad Pink Floyd go the "honors" of having this thread, they really deserve, imo at least.

Wierdly enough, I just watched it last night. It was actually an estimated 300 thousand. They sold tickets for 200 thousand, but they opened the gates because they were afraid people would get trampled. Its really a good show. Roger is a born entertainer. He plays the whole show and a song from Radio Kaos at the end. Since its for charity, there are numerous guest stars such as Sinead O'Conner, Cindy Lauper, The Band, Van Morrison, Bryan Adams, Joni Mitchell, and lots of others. Look into it. It's worth seeing.

I never thought Cindi Lauper was hot til I saw that video.

A good Floyd starter song is If. Nice little finger picking piece, easy to play. I also enjoy playing the intro to Is there Anybody Out There. You know the acoustic bit in A minor? And Fearless has always been one of my fav's. Maybe because it is one of the first songs I ever figured out by ear.

Breathe is an awesome song to play, Mother, Goodbye Blue Sky, Pigs on the Wing, and Us and Them are a few of my faves. I'm with you csaintg, Is There Anybody Out There is my absolute favorite. It relaxes me. I just sit and play it while I watch tv.

I am absolutely in love with Pink Floyd. I can never get enough of them. I'm suprised more people didn't mention Wish You Were Here, not the song (which is freaking awsome!) but the album, have a cigar, shine on you crazy diamond parts 1 and 2, welcome to the machine, every song on it is classic. Animals is also very overlooked, eerie yet powerful. You havn't expirienced Dark Side of The Moon untill you listen to the whole cd all the way through, from begining to end. I don't even break apart the songs, it just blends together so beautifully, it sounds like one big masterpiece, a single song. It flows that good. Anyways, that's my humble opinion, and I hope you all have a good time jamming to the fruits of Floyd

Even if Floyd had a reunion, which I'm skeptical on, They'd only do show or two. So tickets would be very pricey and very limited. If were lucky, they'd record it. But thats most likely not happening. I seriously hope I'm wrong.

I dont see any problem with having both.. but thats the way the cookie crumbles.. they are my 2 favorite bands after all.

So far as the Atom heart Mother album goes, the album rocked! My favorite song off it was If, just because its simple, the lyrics are good (though what floyd lyrics aren't?), and its very nice and melodic.
Other than that my fave is Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast though. That song has so much going on in it. it has all sorts of different little solos in it, each one is absolutely amazing. I like how during the last "movement" I'll call it, the mumblings of allan just blend in so perfectly with the song to create sort of a bass line, and in some ways lyrics. What a great song.
Atom Heart Mother is a masterpiece as well. It sounds like a classical work of art that easily challenges some of Beethoven's and Mozart's finest works. If you listen to it, it actually expresses certain ups and downs in emotion, and tells a story, which each time you listen to it is different. its a wonderful song as well.
In summer of 68 I have to point out how well they did harmonizing their voices. Its like an acapella, except with accompaniment. Thats also a great piece of music.
Mr Safety you are a saviour
