    No, you're just being an average Floyd fan. Enter Sandman syndrome. Why like the most popular song of a band when you can like everything else more and be different and cool!

    I agree with Pepin though on both accounts. Nobody Home is very emotional in the sense it could have been on The Final Cut, but it is an amazing song nonetheless. And Run Like Hell is pretty cool but it's not a stand out song by any means, it gets repetitive. Kinda the same with High Hopes. Good song, but saying it's the best on the album is a massive overstatement

    That's probably the most underrated song on the album imo.

    You mean the last upbeat part?

    Edited:

    Well yeah, it's not really a pop rock song like any of the others on the album.

    Here's the video link, it doesn't have the social feeds you see on the channel stream, but it's still badass.

    With that mustache he could've.

    Also, I didn't think the Floyd would get the Beatles treatment.

    Roger said Multi for favorite color because he would later write Any Colour You Like.

    It has arrived!

    You have no idea how much I envy you right now. I must get the super ultra mega edition of DSOTM, The Wall, WYWH, and if there is one, Animals. I'd also really like to see one of The Division Bell. I feel like I'm the only person who actually really loves that album though, sadly

    I just had the most brilliant idea for The Greatest Gig In The Sky, replace some the repeated visuals and world map section with concert footage, overlap more concert footage over other visual parts, put even more concert footage in some of those blank circles/squares/etc. where the social comments go, and then put famous badass philisophical quotes in other blank spots.

    Dad found a Pink Floyd documentary the other day. First thing he said to me was "I didn't know Roger Waters was such a prick, even in the interviews he struck me as an egotistical asshole"

    Man, what was really great about The Dark Side of the Moon Tour was that it was just those four guys, plus Dick Parry and backing vocalists. They didn't need any other session musicians to augment their playing, like in the future tours. DSOTM is simple music, yet so complex at the same time.

    Everything layered into itself. The Wall was more of a show, a literal rock opera, than it was a prog. rock album. Animals had so many layers it was ridiculous. I think Wish You Were Here is the only other album that even comes close to being completely playable with no outside help.

    They've also played that numerous times by themselves.

    They only played that once, and it was on Live At Pompeii, Richard's dog sang on that version.
