This is so different (and equally enjoyable) from the rest of Pink Floyd. Genius!!

I always saw Rock and Roll as Pink Floyd on one end of the spectrum and ACDC on the other end. Bands Quite different from each other and anyone else. With all other Rock and Roll falling on a scale somewhere between those two.

Last Pink Floyd concert, and my only one. Thank God I was born soon enough for that even if the band was not complete. Had a blast waiting over night for tickets in some guy's van who had a vhs of "The Wall", awesome concert, awesome tailgate.

Phenomenal music seen them in concert in 94 was the best concert ever hands down

@MLDAVE
IMO, I think this song would be a good way to end The Wall, and Roger singing in higher harmoney.
If only, right?

David sort of gives it a sounds with his solo that would have made it a good fit for The Wall or Dark Side.

Afterall its a Tom Waits song, who could have known that in the beginning. I'm sure Tom has been covered by many.

No Roger Waters = no Pink Floyd.

I saw the very first laser light show in America. Pink Floyd, in Dallas. 1976, I think. Maybe '77. Fantastic!

Gilmour is one of those something special.

A truly amazing protest song. Powerful lyrics, framed in music that conveys the heaviness of the theme, and then carries the listener along emotionally to a place where by the end you feel maybe we can change for the better.

Two totally different approaches to "progressive album oriented rock", but Pink Floyd and Yes are my two faves in this genre, and I can't really say which one I prefer more. I guess it just depends on the mood I am in at the moment.
