Title: Pink Floyd
Post by: Po on September 04, 2010, 04:26:53 PM
So I searched for Pink Floyd topics and I couldn't find any. Only mentioned in various posts in different threads. This thread is for fans of Pink Floyd to converse. What is your favourite time frame for Pink Floyd?

I just started listening to them and I am obsessed with Syd's reign in the band but now i am also enjoying the bands later stuff as well. I love their psychedelic sound.

That was mind blowingly beautiful Lala, thank you.

This song makes me feel like crying.

Pink Floyd deserve more than a thread. Not a day passes without me listening to The Great Gig In The Sky. I was playing The Dark Side of the Moon on my record player as I saw this post. I'm obsessed with that album. Sometimes, I try to sit with myself, listen to it, and create a story out of it. I hope they would make a movie out of it, like they did with The Wall. I know it is not long enough, but they could do a short film, perhaps.

If only success didn't take the best of Roger Waters, we would have had more albums like The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Wish You Were Here, Animals, Division Bell, Pulse...etc. Long live the legendary Pink Floyd.

I know a shop in Berlin where I bought my best friend "Meddle" on vinyl and they had lots more. But most of them were second hand. Or all. I didn't look that closely.

Thanks for opening the thread, Cerque. :)

I know that everybody in the whole universe already knows this, but I'm going to use it as a bumper!

The Dark Side of the Moon is the most successful album of all time. A study have conducted that one in every 20 people in the United States owns a copy of this album. The Dark Side of the Moon is also the 3rd the best selling album of all time, and the second best selling rock album (behind AC/DC's Back in Black). The Dark Side of the Moon was on the Billboard 200 for around 15 years at its initial release, longer than any other album.

Oh, how I love these statistics.

Did you know that The Wall is the double-album that got written about the most in academic papers? Well, Wikipedia is my source, but I read it quite a while ago and it still sticks in my head. :D

3rd best selling album of all time? Now that is freaky. ^^

Anyhow... I need to give them a proper listen again, haven't done that for so long.

There are a lot of interesting facts on Pink Floyd's albums, which is why their success is legendary.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Back in Black, it is one of the greatest hard rock achievements, but to me it is a shocker that Appetite for Destruction isn't the most successful hard rock album. I need to give it more rounds.

You should definitely listen to them again. Ever since I got my vinyl copy of The Dark Side of the Moon, I've been listening to it everyday.

And anything after The Wall. I only know some songs off The Division Bell, my favourite is What Do You Want From Me? Might be progressive gospel. ;D That should be my new favourite musical genre. And then... I think I know one song off The Final Cut, but only subconsciously. I think it was on the radio one day and I recognized it.

I loved The Wall and The Divison Bell. As for The Final Cut, well, I need to listen to it again to decide. It's hard for me to choose a favorite Pink Floyd song since I usually listen to their albums as whole, rather than a choose a song or two.

You never listened to The Dark Side of the Moon, or Wish You Were Here, or Animals? You should! Start with The Dark Side of the Moon. ;D

You could always try other stuff by Pink Floyd. Wish You Were Here is a great song, but far from my favorite. Try to listen to their albums rather than song. They usually compose albums as a whole. Their albums are like...plotted, if that makes sense.

I think anything can be a good introduction. Mh... I wouldn't try the very progressive stuff, so you should rather start a bit earlier.

Yeah, you should either start with The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn or... Maybe Meddle or... Dark Side Of The Moon. Obscured By Clouds is a very unusual Floyd album, but you can try that, too.

Inspiration doesn't make you a freak, or a desperate person. We all faced things that has changed our lives. Yours happen to be a musical album. Not only any musical album, it's a Pink Floyd album.

I don't want to go off topic, but I have to say that MGMT changed a huge part of my life. After I came here to the forum, I started to feel uncomfortable with listening to them again. I don't know why. A part of me wishes if I've never seen this forum.

anyone have tickets to see Roger Waters-The Wall tour? super expensive......saw him at Deer Creek(Indy) a couple years ago....effin amazing.

Also, since this is PF related I will share a story.

I was camping at Wild Horse campgrounds outside the Gorge Amphitheater over Labor Day weekend and the stars out there at night were simply amazing. No city lights to bother them, they were all out on full display.

Long story short, after the concerts all 3 nights we'd go back to our campsite, get extremely high and look at the stars. On the first night we were all rollin on E and the stars were "popping" almost like flash bulbs. All of us saw it. My state of mind was not incredibly clear, but I swear I saw at least 5 shooting stars and behind them would be a trail of a beautiful reddish tint as it drifted across the sky.

To get to my point, we did this star gazing in complete silence except for Dark Side of the Moon playing on the IPOD. It was one of the most beautiful and surreal experiences of my life.

Review of the Roger Waters show:
Roger Waters feels “the jury is out” on technology. Does it really connect us? Are we any better off? He’s unsure. As a result, he’s yanked his epic 1979 LP off the shelf, and he’s decided to tour behind it again. Now 30 years later, Waters’ take on The Wall focuses less on its central character Pink and more on those we’ve lost over the past decade. Working off of animation originally designed by Gerald Scarfe, the new stage show bridges the past with the present, highlighting videos and photos of war-torn families and individuals, all embedded in the classic story. Who’s to blame? Well, that’s part of the event.

For America, it started in Chicago.

If anyone has any doubts about this tour, leave ‘em at home. This isn’t a “glorified Pink Floyd cover band”, nor is it a “cash in” by Waters, as plenty of chatter on the net has expressed. Instead, it’s a re-envisioning of what you might consider to be one of the greatest albums ever. (We did.) Sure, aspects of the 1980 tour return. There’s, well, a wall. Yes, he brought “the pig.” And, as you’d expect, there were children on “Another Brick in the Wall Part 2″. But, Waters embraces the modern technology available today, which might feel rather hypocritical given his argument yet it really brings the album’s concept to life.



Photo by McKenzie Gerber

For one, as stage technicians placed brick after cardboard brick atop one another, digital projections illustrated many of the song’s themes. During “Mother”, Waters nailed a duet with himself by singing alongside an old 1980 performance recorded in Earls Court. On “Young Lust”, thousands of various pin ups (Tina Fey included) ensconced dozens of meaty videos, mostly of strippers or models, as the band belted out its bouncy theme. Then before “Vera” and “Bring the Boys Home”, following the actual completion of the wall that is, footage of children surprised by fathers and mothers returning home from war stole the moment from the band. The line “Don’t leave the children on their own” has never stung so much.

Then there’s all the tangible, physical work. Let’s just say the stage moved, quaked, erupted, and transformed. From the start, fireworks amped up “In the Flesh?”, soldiers soared toward the ceiling, and spotlights acted as foreboding helicopters. You knew you were in for a stage show, and not just some light parade with confetti – though both were readily available, too. And used. But, oh, how there was more. Stadium-sized puppetry highlighted “Another Brick in the Wall Part 2″, as the lurching, iconic schoolteacher berated the dancing students below, and later Pink’s mother and wife came to visit, as well. At one point, a piece of the wall broke off to reveal a mini-diorama of Pink’s living room, where Waters sang “Nobody Home”. Visual overload might correctly summarize the whole event, if only it didn’t have such negative connotations to it. For now, just try and imagine what Jim Henson might have assembled had he dabbled in more rock ‘n’ roll. Oh, and if he took mescaline.



Photo by McKenzie Gerber

But what about the message? Unlike most arena rock acts, Waters kept true to his word and stuck to his agenda. It really worked, too. The album’s core themes of isolation and fear connects so well with Waters’ distrust on our reliance on technology. Simply put: We hide behind our iPods, we lose ourselves in our smart phones. But, so what? Everyone knows this. Not so fast, though. Waters twists it around some.

After the show’s first act, cutting off right after “Goodbye Cruel World”, the house lights ignited and the word “Intermission” burned itself into the wall’s white surface. Minutes later, faces washed over each brick, all with dates and details. It’s a new movement Waters plans to promote on his tour, and it’s called “Fallen Loved Ones”, which asks fans to submit photos and details of someone they’ve lost in the war. While quite somber for a rock concert, it was highly enlightening. But Rogers’ message didn’t sink in just yet. However, by the time they returned and plummeted through “Run Like Hell”, where various faux advertisements like “iMurder” or “iPay” (no doubt poking fun at Apple’s now-iconic marketing) raced across the stage wall, things started to make sense. Don’t blame the technology, blame how we use it. Waters sold that idea then and there; however, whether or not the audience bought it is uncertain. Probably not. But, if technology’s concerned, they did capture one hell of a show with their iPhone.

One hell of a show.

Thanks a lot for sharing, lala.  :) That sounds really good. The Wall is a pretty weird and partly disturbing album, but for Pink Floyd it's a good album. Better than Wish You Were Here, everything after 79 and probably also Obscured By Clouds and Dark Side Of The Moon.

I am really curious. I hope I can still get a ticket for Berlin. They have added another date for next year. We'll see. The closest I'll ever get to seeing Pink Floyd live.

Visual overload might correctly summarize the whole event, if only it didn’t have such negative connotations to it. For now, just try and imagine what Jim Henson might have assembled had he dabbled in more rock ‘n’ roll. Oh, and if he took mescaline.
:D That's a nice description. Yes, it does have something of Jim Henson. He even has a pig.  ;D

Simply put: We hide behind our iPods, we lose ourselves in our smart phones.
I like that phrase. It's really interesting applied to the whole concept of The Wall.

However, by the time they returned and plummeted through “Run Like Hell”, where various faux advertisements like “iMurder” or “iPay” (no doubt poking fun at Apple’s now-iconic marketing) raced across the stage wall, things started to make sense. Don’t blame the technology, blame how we use it. Waters sold that idea then and there; however, whether or not the audience bought it is uncertain. Probably not. But, if technology’s concerned, they did capture one hell of a show with their iPhone.
Oh God, Roger Waters, ILU.  :D That man is brilliant. And a bit nuts. But genius needs some elements of insanity, doesn't it? That man is so dedicated to his work, it always impresses me. Even though during the last 20 years he didn't really produce the greatest music I have ever heard. iMurder and iPay, do I spot his socialist mind there?  ;D

Check out Meddle. Echoes is a really cool song, 23 minutes. But awesome. And Seamus is pretty cool, too.

Otherwise... Check out The Wall, it can be really good. "Empty Spaces" is pretty awesome.  ;D

I really like their debut, Piper At The Gates Of Dawn... And the More soundtrack.

I listened to the Meddle album for the first time a couple months back. I have no words to describe the epicness of Echoes. My imagination just runs wild for 23 minutes and some seconds.

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can

I like that you brought that up. It's one of my favourite Floyd albums, too. I love the Blues instrumentals. The Nile Song, Ibiza Bar, they're all my favourites. 8)

Ah, Cymbaline, that's a classic. I feel that this record is not typically "Floyd". I think that Meddle and Obscured By Clouds are a bit atypical, too. Oh, Meddle is awesome. Funnily enough my favourites from that one are Echoes and Seamus. ;D The two extremes on the album.

First, I was really into Free Four, but then I discovered The Gold It's In The... .  ;D

The only album by the Floyd that I own on vinyl is Wish You Were Here. I don't even know why, I don't really like the album that much. I think I bought it for three euros. ;D I want The Wall on vinyl, I think it looks cool on vinyl, too.

"Wish You Were Here" is ok, but still has some great tracks. "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is an absolutley amazing song, but for whatever reason, i can never get into it. i love "Echoes" and the whole album of "Animals" so it cant be the length of it. i cant figure it out why.
Dont want to brag, but i found "The Wall" on vinyl recently and it was the best 5 dollars i've ever spent.

Yeah, the song is a bit weird. It depends on my mood. I don't think it's the length either.

I listened to "Animals" again a couple of weeks ago and it still sounded great. I still love "Sheep" the way I always did.

So The Wall definitely is a good investment. That's pretty convincing. ;D

Syd Barrett was the coolest

Nick was a pretty fiddly drummer. The drumming on Arnold Layne is brilliant and an essential part of the song. It wouldn't be the same without the drums. (I never actually noticed that, only now that I actively thought about it.)

I really like a lot of the un-Floydish songs. I love Seamus and the More blues instrumentals. The Nile Song, Ibiza Bar. And the trippy late 60s stuff on Umma Gumma. And the very poppy Obscured By Clouds songs, like The Gold, It's In The... Progressive pop, hahahaha. THAT is Obscured By Clouds. You know, the guitar on Free Four...

I can't really think of other drum songs. There's loads of songs with brilliant piano and organ parts. Take Sheep for example... I really love that song because of the piano. A lot of piano-based Floyd songs are really cool. Rick's songs were always cute.

Sheep has pretty cool drums. Also on Ibiza Bar there's pretty original drum parts. Take Up Thy Stethoscope And Walk and other early songs. Later on, I think, the drums became more... normal. But I think my favourite drum song of the Floyd is Arnold Layne.
Title: Re: Pink Floyd
Post by: Dark Globe on May 23, 2011, 06:30:37 PM
funny you should mention Ummaguma. i never really gave that album a chance,for whatever reason. i have it and all, but i never really have the time to listen to it. 

Back onto the drumming, 60s and 70s Floyd was a great time period for drumming. The drums on Sheep and Arnold Layne are great, but Money is my fave. no pun intended, but the drumming is on the money (boy that was corny). 

After the departure of Waters, I don't like Pink Floyd that much, drumming wise and musically. It sounds like they were trying to fit with the mainstream. To me, it just sounds like a mix of prog rock with bad alternative rock. but that comes from a person who loves psychedelic/trippy music, like Piper At The Gates Of Dawn  8)

I can't say I've given atom heart mother and ummagumma enough plays to figure them out, other than Summer '68, which I like a lot.  Overall, one of my favorite artists

I'm undecided about prog rock. It depends. I like Animals, but the later albums, as you said, I do not really like... Although What Do You Want From Me? is pretty awesome because it is just prog rock straight to your face.  ;D In an amusing way.

I think it's generally late 80's/90's prog rock that is so absurd. Thanks for the link.

Echoes is such a pinnacle in the work of Pink Floyd, it's that amazing. Gilmour is fantastic at guitar, but his vocals aren't too shabby either. i found this video a while back and it really expresses how he's well rounded as a musician.

Aw, that's a great video. I think I have watched this before, but it was great to see this again. I think Rick Wright was the best thing of the gig. Probably because Rick Wright almost always is the best thing of everything. ;D Love that man. Him and David had such a good chemistry, musically.

Yeah, his vocals aren't bad. I like that video. It's almost... celestial. The first word I came up with. I actually wanted to refer to old cloister choirs from the middle ages, but celestial is exactly what it is. Funny coincidence, huh? ^^

I think David is very fond of progressive rock. But I don't know about this, really. I think he is better at the "simpler" songs, the songs that are not too over the top, if that makes sense. I always liked the simplicity of his earlier work in Pink Floyd.

I watched this again yesterday and it made me laugh:

I loved the part with the oysters:
- What nationality are they?
- I like to think that oysters transcend national barriers.

Also, what Rick said about the band was really cute:
- We understand each other very well. We’re very tolerant with each other. Er… But a lof things unsaid as well, I feel. Sometimes.
- How do you get over the difficult times?
- Well, they’re not that difficult. And we do - I don’t know how we get over it - but we do.

AGM, I definitely love talking about my favorite bands with the people on this forum. I was reading some more about Rick, and I read that he and David Gilmour have said that 'Wish You Were Here' is their favorite Pink Floyd album.One of my favorite songs from there is Have a Cigar. But when I listen to it now, the sarcastic lyrics make me think of Congratulations! 

Both albums follow the huge success of their previous (OS for MGMT, and Dark Side of the Moon for Pink Floyd), and I think the band members felt pressure from the public to just repeat their previous success and 'ride the gravy train'.  Instead they followed their own instincts, and that is what makes them great.

We're just knocked out, we heard about the sell out.
You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people.
We're so happy we can hardly count.
Everybody else is just green, have you seen the chart?
It's a helluva start, it could be made into a monster
if we all pull together as a team.
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy,
we call it Riding the Gravy Train.

Have is Cigar is one of my favorite song of theirs.  Roger wanted Dave to sing it because Roger was having trouble with the range, but Dave didn't feel comfortable singing the lyrics (since that's not how he felt), so Roy Harper is the person who actually sings on it.

I love the way he sings the line 'I've always had a deep respect, and I mean most sin-cere', I can just picture some sleazy record exec eyeing them like a wolf.

I looked up Roy Harper's wiki page, and Joanna Newsom cites him as an influence...another MGMT connection  :)

Post by: AGM on September 17, 2011, 02:13:50 PM
Yes, I agree with both of you , Have a cigar is one of my favorite song too.
It must be hard to bring something new to people when you achieve such a big succes before. But I think that they feel free about the way to create and develop music.

For me that is a significant fact, because I realise that the bands that I like the most don't follow a "pattern" . It is easy ,I think, the fact that they are making what they want, don't push them away from selling records, you can amaze people and sell a record any way.

I love how Roy sing it!!

Sometimes is really hard to put my thoughts in english guys,I hope you can understand me, I'm sorry

Pink Floyd - Dogs (Complete Song) ([url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HxHwuiDPgk#[/url])


Such a perfect song for an Occupy Wall Street video. Every lyric reminds me of crooked banksters:

A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.


I like the psychedelia of early Pink Floyd, but I also really love the concept albums of the later years, especially Animals.

Absolutely amazing album, and he is indeed, all that powerful lyrics came from his talent. Animals really surprises me all the time. I read that the lyrics and the whole concept in it were inspired by George Orwell's book "Animal Farm" . I seriously recomend that book.

and of course DSOTM... its such a good album if you haven't listed to it yet then, i don't know what to say if that was the case, but! that album is amazing live check out dsotm live on BBC

Start wherever you can.
Maybe start with dark side
Make your way back to piper
Onto atom heart mother
And so on
Avoid the wall
Sorry that's just me, the wall doesn't get me going.
Then go back to syds solo stuff
Then read lots of bios and watch interviews
Then revisit everything chronologically.
Then you'll dig the wall for a bit
Now ten years have got behind you
And you're either a waters loyalist
Or more likely a Gilmour girl
Or perhaps you're something greater
Like an all around appreciator.
