Pink Floyd's "best song"?

Recommended Posts

Led Zeppelin!

Zep and Floyd were great live acts, but I think neither of them are the best that ever was.

Hard to equate. Two different animals. The "who put on a better show" was rhetorical. I would go to see either band.

Floyd is bit more psychedelic(spelling?)I guess, but it is my opinion that Led Zeppelin is the best ever in concert.

They're my two favorite live bands along with the Grateful Dead.

It's impossible to choose the best Pink Floyd song. I can't even choose which album I love the most, because so many of them are damn good.

Echoes is their most important song. Without it, there wouldn't have been Dark Side of the Moon.

As for them live, they were very hit and miss before 1977. I said this in some thread some time ago, once they brought in supporting musicians for live shows, they sounded much better. Unfortunately, that didn't really happen until Pink Floyd had crumbled.

This is not true. I have more boots pre-77 than I do post-77 and a lot of the shows they did before Animals were absolutely effing phenomenal. Every single boot I have from the Wish You Were Here tour in 1975 is spectacular, not just in sound quality, but in the quality of the performance. Maybe you listened to some crap recordings.

This is what I've been listening to a lot lately...

From Obscured by Clouds, imo their most underrated album.

Hard to pick a definitive song, but my favourite live song is One Of These Days. It was mindblowing when they did at Earl's Court when I saw them B)

Agreed. I love that whole album.

"Careful With That Axe, Eugene" is totally wicked live too.

Roger Waters screams could wake the dead :D

My all time favorite Floyd song is "Time". I encompasses all of the great aspects of the group - great lyrics, thematic sound effects and a fantastic guitar solo.

Good pick!! To be honest, I have very selective likes from Floyd. I find some of their stuff pretty boring, but there's a few gems in there. moontourist102008009.jpgmower.jpg
