I just bought it this weekend and I love it. I've listened to it a few times and its great. My question is I heard that the band gave people a bunch of questions and used their answers. Does anyone have the list of the questions? Are the answers all the talking in the end of money and stuff like that?

they just got a lot of people in a room and got them to talk about morality and stuff. but im not entirely sure how that worked. I think they mustve just taped a hell of a lot of talking then picked the bits they wanted.

Pink Floyd handed out cards with questions such as "when was the last time you were in a fight with someone?" and "are you afraid of death?" and other such morality questions to crew, roadies and friends of the band and people in the studio at the time.

^That?s pretty much it they also got some stuff from Paul McCartney and his wife Linda but they decided not to use any of it as the voices were "too famous" and also McCartney?s answers were fairly guarded seeing as he was being asked about insanity and whatnot. But his guitarist was used "I've been mad for fucking years"

Sorry, it's kinda hard to notice the sarcasm because people would actually say that literally.

Fantastic album. Anyway, what did they do with those cards? Did they just put what they said for the lyrics in the song or something?

I think its all the talking in the background, like in Money you hear people saying like "I don't remeber I was really drunk at the time" and stuff like that.

Bravo, look forward to listening to that album many more times through the course of your life as I have

I've got my Uncle's original vinyl copy... it's so much better than the cd [mainly because my record player is attached to the biggest amp you have ever seen].
Great album, hope you get many years of listening out of it.

yeah, stuff like "I don't remember I was really drunk at the time," "short, sharp, shock," (Us and Them), "there's no Dark Side of the Moon, really...matter of fact it's all dark," "I've been mad for fucking years," "I'm not frightened of dying, any time will do. Why should I be, we've all got to go sometime..." are all responses from people that were around the studio at the time of recording. Waters had questions written down on notecards that would be shown to different people and their answers were recorded and used on the album. Some of the people interviewed were Jerry Driscoll (who was, I believe an Abbey Road doorman), Roger the Hat (a stoned roadie ...he provided the laughter heard throughout the album, I think I have the actual interview), Paul and Linda McCartney, the guitarist from Wings (I believe his name was Henry McCollough) and some others.

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

i love pink floyd i have Dark Side Of The Moon but the only song i can play by pink floyd is Wish You Were Here

yo tenacious me. if you have the movie the wizard of oz put in dark side of the moon, turn the volume on the tv down and go to the part of the movie when they meet the lion. on the lions third growl/roar play the cd and then the album will play to the mood of the movie, definatly one of the most creative things any band has ever done in rock history. that is why pink floyd is so good and geniuses. it has nothing to do with your question but i think that it is something really cool to do with that album.

Tenacious Me! The Dire Straits dude. Yes, indeed it's a good album. If you wanna check out some of their best stuff, check out Meddle and Relics.
