Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light
Don't give in without a fight

Hey you, out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out
Would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home

But it was only fantasy
The wall was too high
As you can see
No matter how he tried
He could not break free
And the worms ate into his brain

Hey you, out there on the road
Always doing what you're told
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall
Breaking bottles in the hall
Can you help me?
Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall

''(Click of TV being turned on)''
"Well, only got an hour of daylight left. Better get started."
"Isn't it unsafe to travel at night?"
"It'll be a lot less safe to stay here. You're father's gonna pick up our trail before long."
"Can Loca ride?"
"Yeah, I can ride. Magaret, time to go! Maigret, thank you for everything."
"Goodbye, Chenga."
"Goodbye, miss..."
"I'll be back."

It's Pink Floyd. You either like them or you don't. But for me, nothing beats DSOTM to Animals. That's where I sit, anyways. {#Cheers}

This is a great tune from The Wall.

Divided we fall.

{#Boohoo} beautiful
It really is to bad people don't like something just because other people do like it.
I am guilty of that myself.

Pink Floyd are like The Beatles.

Where would we be without them..........I wonder.

Thankfully I was lucky to see them once. Animals tour. Etched into my psyche still.

That's inconsistent of you - you did give "Fearless" a 9 after all. Did you no know it was Pink Floyd when you were enjoying it at the time?
The Wall - has never been of my play list - musically superb! Roger and the boys at their Very Best!

Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then the one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you're older
And shorter of breath and one day closer to death
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time

In fact, I don't know of any other band that has a higher bar for a live show.

This is a great song from a brilliant album. It's amazing how well Pink Floyd's work from the late 70's has aged. They were way ahead of their time and the engineering and production still are considered a benchmark (especially Dark Side of the Moon).

David Gilmour from Pink Floyd by ~Araen

So, finally, a Dave Gilmour. I didn't draw him so far. It would have been appropriate long ago that I give him place here.

Ahhh, and the scanner killed this picture. There is a lot more detail on it.

Update:
Finally I'm able to change this with a digital photo... whew. Dark a bit, but more detailed



But there's somebody else that needs taking care of in Washington.

This song is deeply personal.  I hate that it gets so much FM airplay.  Sounds good within the RP context.  10.

Same for me, don't like this album at all. But this song, just reminds me of good times arguing (for hours!) with friends who all loved this album. So, at the end, this was the song they would play as it was time for me to part. Didn't fall though...


Floyd...?
Now Queen I am out of here!

I could never hear this song again for the next 100 years and it would be too soon.  Plodding, dragging - and still screechy.

I'm a Floyd fan.
I love this track.
I love this album.

It may not be the best record the band came out with.
But I think it is arguably the best produced album of all time.
It has so many layers and textures that flow seamlessly from one song to the next.
It's a masterwork!

Well put.

You're almost right.  The movie was released about two years later than the album, but could easily have been compiled as a music soundtrack with no changes.

Clarification:
The reason The Wall may be difficult to listen to is that it is a soundtrack to the film, no?

I remember being thrown by the Beatles' Help LP; how weird and different and unlistenable it was... because every other track was a weird orchstrated interlude that only had meaning when watching the film.

Same thing with The Wall, I always found.

I do love this song and especially the Live version from The Wall Live In Berlin performed by Paul Carrack.
I agree with you on this. There are some good, even great tracks on The Wall but apart the album's excellent airing of rage and angst it's a confused mess. The album's supposed to tell a story, but even when it was made into a movie it didn't make much sense or take you anywhere. This song always struck me as especially tiresome, labored and whiny.

Pink Floyd made some great, great music about individual isolation and alienation from society but as Roger Waters took over the band, its music lost a lot beauty, charm and mystery. Listening to Dark Side of the Moon from beginning to end is easy. Who listens to the even half of The Wall in one go?

You know, I've never gotten the whole "it's overplayed" complaint, but never really thought about why--when it's clearly a big deal to so many. You nailed it perfectly. Don't listen to crap radio (i.e., all of it) and you won't become bored with their limited playlists. Then a tune like this becomes a delectable treat again, much like a cheeseburger can taste wonderful if you only have one a year, instead of boring like when you eat one every day.

Dave played bass on a lot of songs (and Waters often played acoustic guitar). According to the Wikipedia article on this song, Dave is playing a Charvel fretless bass.

I've loved the Floyd since Saucerful of Secrets. For me, there biggest misque was Animals. The Wall has a lot of unlistenable crap on it, to be sure, but the Gilmour stuff is all terrific, as always. I understand it was DG, incidentally, who had to convince Roger that this release just ...would... not ...work... without some of the tunes offering something in the way of melody. Thank God for David Gilmour!

I really dug this at the time but I haven't been tempted to put it on in about 25 years. I even thought about getting the movie again via Netflix, but then thought...nah. I don't really know why. Great album

They may have peaked with WYWH, but Animals is almost as good. While I liked the Wall, its more a Waters solo project than a band effort - with Gilmour's guitar solos thrown in.

But no comparison to Dark Side or Wish you were here. Oh, and it is much better on chemicals. . . Or at least it was back in the day (which thankfully is long gone and far away). Peace all. :cheers:

Love me my Floyd, though I can pass on The Wall. This one is one of the highlights of The Wall. Sounds like you might need some of those chemical influences you claim are required to enjoy this music. Oh and by the way, which one's Pink?
