The Great Gig In The Sky

Lyrics

"And I am not frightened of dying any time will do
I don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it you've gotta go sometime."
"If you can hear this whispering you are dying."

Trivia nugget! This vocal is sung by Toni Tennile/ of the Captain & Tenille! Check your old L.P. Liner notes! And it's F**king Great!

Richard Wright was a big part of the Pink Floyd sound. He wrote this song. It is a classic. May he RIP.

Saw them do this live in Pittsburgh.C l a r e in a blue floor length gown,bathed in a blue light, Richard Wright at the piano, bathed in a white light. In was, at that time, a life changing moment for a 18 year old kid.... I will never forget that moment! Also, the drugs!!!

Why do they have 'if you hear this whispering you are dying' and 'I never said I was frightened of dying' as if both are said in the song? It's either one or the other.
Still, this is one of my favourites off of this album. :P
