Into the distance a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled

Pandora is making people more musically ignorant. Two different songs, artists, writers, release dates...list goes on. Just the same song name. But either way, Gilmour led era doesn't get enough positive response.

I had seen PINK FLOYD in 1990...In Giant Stadium. They were awsome!! Classic music that will never die in my book!!

There isn't 1 song in the Floyd catalog that doesn't include at least 1 of Waters, Gilmour, Wright, Barrett or Mason as a song writer.

Lol...it was Tom Pettys song Learning to Fly that Jeff Lynne and he wrote. How they confused them I'm not sure.......& I'm glad the lyrics are back :)

I liked the lyrics!
Also, I contacted them, it's a licensing thing, not your opinion that caused them to take the lyrics down. :(

20 years later I still remember them doing this on their last tour, and them cranking out the laser lights during the breakdown part where you hear the pilot relaying messages to the tower. Sure the Pink Floyd Laser Light Show is one thing, seeing PINK FLOYD using lasers at their own show is a whole other level of awesome!

Thank you for my "pink fix" Pandora. Pink Floyd has a song for every memorable moment of my life.
