Sunlight bright upon my pillow
Lighter than an eiderdown
Will she let the weeping willow
Wind his branches round
Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams

Every night I turn the light out
Waiting for the velvet bride
Will the scaly armadillo
Find me where I'm hiding
Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams

Will the misty master break me
Will the key unlock my mind
Will the following footsteps catch me
Am I really dying
Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams
Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams
Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams
Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams

Sorry for being contrarian about early Pink Floyd, but I personally think this is where Spinal Tap got their hilarious satire. These are like the first chords you learn to strum out on a guitar, and then you write about dreams, and stuff. I adore later Pink Floyd. But as tragic as Sid Barrett's later life was, the whole band's musical ability in this period is over-rated, though this is a Roger Water's song. Too young to experience Pink Floyd in the 60s first hand, and so I have no nostalgia about it.

I remember when FM stations were sleepy afterthought stations...back in the 70's. In my area, the FM stations played other than the hits off albums. Not anymore obviously. This is why RP is absolutely brilliant.

Man, this sounds just like Pink Floyd!

wish this song can go longer, why do they have to make it so short :music:
 
 Sorry it's taken 12 years to 'react' to this post!!  The length of tracks in the 60s was to do with UK radio play time - very rare then for a track to exceed 2Mins - even Queen had issues with Bohemian Rhapsody!!

Love the album cover. So steam-punk, decades before the genre existed!
"Relics" is right.  Not for me, I'm afraid
wish this song can go longer, why do they have to make it so short :music:
oy vey
THANK YOU! So good to hear the early floyd on RP!

I do too, but Pink Floyd grew into something special. I'd forgotten about this little ditty. I wish it had stayed forgotten. :rolleyes:

This is Roger Waters attempt to sound like Syd after the madcap could no longer create. As such it is a rare transitional moment in the Odyssey of this phenomenal group.
Bring on Sid Barrett :clap: :hug: :moon:
Great job of digging out the rarer PF music! Bravo!!!!!!!! :notworthy:
