Kooh video : Clinic - Walking with thes
Another thing I found out - there's a show called The curse of oak island - they are trying to dig up a boobie trap treasure buried 200 plus feet underground and is believed to have belonged to the Knights Templar - fyi, they pillaged every known people in their time , this equals , huge amounts of gold, I think our founding fathers ( USA ) somehow got their hands on it and used it to fund Americas beginnings , hmmmm
There's also a video of a person speaking on a cell phone , what's awkward you say ? This occurred in the year 1920 - ah, what the hell, you find it for yourself
You tube video : Wizard of Oz / pink Floyd

Stress releasing
Saw this concert back in the day.. so epic.. what an experience.
Love this song. Wish I could hear it live
I'm gonna play this at my nephews funeral as he asked if he dies before I do!
I'm 13 and my parents love pink Floyd I think I was born in the wrong generation.
I sure love this song!! Saw the concert on this tour & was blown away!!!
I'm actually a rhino with 9 kidneys
Under the Property Tax Independence Act I can afford to buy Pink Floyd DVDs !!
Love the message too.
Saw PF when they started touring again right after this album came out. For some obscure reason they picked my hometown of Ottawa, Canada to start their tour. Most. Amazing. Concert. Ever. Due to that concert new bylaws went into effect providing noise level limitations and closure times for outdoor concerts. You could hear the concert in Kanata that night. PF is one of those bands that stays with you for decades.
This song haunts me.9
Glad the 1 & only time I ever saw these guys, The Division Bell tour, they did this tune! ...right before they took a 20 min. break before coming back to finish the show, lol. I guess the song took everything outta them.

I cried when I listened to this. For the 100th time.
This song gave me goosebumps
Listening with volume all the way up= flying on clouds and watching giant butterflies riding dolphins in the sky.
Maybe one day we won't turn away.
Won tickets in 72 -73? Also in 90 something in phx best memories ever!!!
Such powerful lyrics accompanied by amazing music.
Excellent guitar solo, Gilmour is amazing.
Eerily reminiscent yes. But quite different. Close your eyes and listen with your mind not your ears
I would bet money this song came close to making The Wall, at least a song for the ending.
Great song. Guitar solo is eerily reminiscent of comfortably numb.
Absolutely sublime
The Tom Waits credit is wrong - another Pandora software/dat a b a s e goof...
Indescribabl e .

Awsome!!!!
I missed the 12/12/12 concert for victims of Sandy, but I think I heard that Roger and Eddie Vedder did this song together...w h i c h I will hear someday, I will make sure of it.
IMP&HO, this song would have been a great way to end The Wall. I mean really. If you have been isolated in a closed space for so long and you finally have the gall to break free, heck, I'd be flying and never look back.
Seems to me that their have been several incarnations of the band known as Pink Floyd. Syd and Roger, then Roger and Dave? Then Roger, then Dave, then Roger and Dave on their own. It's still Floyd! I guess.
Leaving one bad situation for another may just lead to more turning away.
Great tune. One of the best ever.
I don't think this is just referring to the rich turning away, but most of society in general.
Had no idea this was a Tom Waits song, I think David might have a better singing voice, but I think it is a lyrical genius on the part of Tom here.
Excellent piece! Very moving.
Saw them do this on their last tour (Division Bell). EPIC!! It was their last song before they'd take a 20 minute break, before coming back to finish the show. Unfortunatel y I had to leave after the song to pick up my then-girlfri e n d who was flying in that same night. AAAGH!! lol
