So I was listening to the wall the other night, and started wondering what's really in those voice-overs, specifically the spoken stuff you hear in the segues.

Does anyone know what movie is playing in the background of the segue leading into "One of my Turns" Not the "Oh my gosh what a fabulous room" person, but the sound of a television.
[Film: "I'll have to find out from Mrs. Bancroft what time she wants to meet us, for her main ..."]
[Film: "If you'll just let me know as soon as you can ... Mrs Bancroft" "Mrs Bancroft ..."]

Does anyone know what this is from, so what Pink is supposedly watching?

Ditto for the ones at the begining of "Is There Anybody out There?" along the lines of "isn't it dangerous to travel before sunlight?" "it'll be a lot more dangerous to wait"


Does anybody know this little bit of trivia? I can't seem to find it, just a transcript, but nothing saying what it's from.

Yeah they were actual TV shows... There was a website that talked about this and a bunch of other stuff in the wall pretty deeply... I don't remember what it is though.. I'm sure someone knows.

in "empty spaces" the voice over's a message if you play it backwards
something like " congratulations you have just discovered the hidden message..please send your answer to Old Pink, courtesy the funnyfarm,chalfont."

some of the stuff is from TV shows, some of it was recorded for the album and ended up being acted out in the movie.

Yes. Perfectly okay. In fact, commendable.



Actually, I was saying it was stupid because you offered absolutely no reason as to why Pink Floyd sucks, as you say. If you explained your reasoning, I would have no beef. Some people love it, some don't. But to say they suck with no explanation really does deserve a banning.

Bland boring music and is not even close to the dreamest music out there yet everyone thinks they are.

Wikipedia.

/stating the obvious

They have a full page with all kinda of analysis on the Wu Tang's Enter the Wu Tang (36 Chambers), and since The Wall is a much more seminal album, it would probably have tons more info.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

I disagree. No one thinks that Pink Floyd is the most "Dreamest" music out there. People like Pink Floyd because of the sound and lyrics. Not because someone out there deemed it as the "Dreamest" band ever. Disliking a band only because some other band didn't get as popular is about one of the dumbest things you can do. It's like a child throwing a tantrum.

They shouldn't. Unfortunately the ratio of Pink Floyd lovers to Pink Floyd haters is terribly biased towards the lovers. You will get the shit flamed out of you for saying pink floyd sucks. Not that many people go and say Nirvana sucks, but the ones who do shouldn't. Personally, I don't like Nirvana all that much, but I do respect them and listen to some of their hits on occasion.

Punk is a different story, punk is genre. There are a lot of people who would agree that classic rock sucks, but they would still pay respect to bands like Pink Floyd. Just because you say Punk sucks, doesn't mean that you don't respect or like some of the bands that are under the punk genre. So saying Punk Sucks is perfectly okay if someone makes a thread about your opinion of punk and/or punk band, where most people who make comments like that do it.

if you actually interpreted the lyrics then you would probably like them. and if you think of all the sounds and lyrics together it makes a great piece. the lyrics dont only say something but the music as well. now some songs i like alot more than others. and dont go off on nirvana to me, i like them. wish i could say the same thing for most punk rock but cant. i would suggest watching the movie. it is wierd but a great movie. but very wierd. and also the wall is known to be one of the greatest albums of all time.

p.s. try to know what your talking about before you say something. it helps. i know from experience.

BACK TO THE TOPIC AT HAND: Im not too sure what the little voice overs are about, nor where they come from (so helpful, i know) your best bet would be wikipedia, they have a lot of random trivia like that.

Also while i respect your opinion, Nirvana dont suck. They're music may be something that you dislike but in essence the music is good, nothing sucks, regardless of your views [and that includes guitar?'s views on Pink Floyd]
