Pink Floyd's best songs


Recommended Posts

I've been a Pink Floyd fan since 1967. Their earlier stuff has always been more interesting to me than their later stuff. After "Dark Side..." they seemed to me to lose a bit of their creative edge. I saw the "Atom heart Mother" suite performed live at the Fillmore East in 1970 with full orchestra & choir and it was amazing. So that album remains a favorite. "Fat Old Sun" from that album is a great Floyd song that never gets heard. "Fearless" from the "Meddle" album is great too. And, of course, Pink Floyd's first album "Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" with original guitarist/singer/songwriter Syd Barrett is a landmark of psychedelic music. Too bad he went nuts, he was brilliant for a short time. Floyd's 1975 album "Wish You Were Here" was actually based on Barrett's mental demise, and the theme was carried on further with "The Wall". A shame Roger Waters and David Gilmore can't stand each other, I'd like to see them work together again in Floyd.
