The greatest band of all time. This being a tribute to Syd who peaked too soon by doing way too much acid. Beautiful song.

Interesting that the sax solo starts with a tenor and ends with an alto.

Not many musical instruments more bluesy ( is that a word? ) than a sax.

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught in the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the lig

Shine on and echoes, the deviation from 3 minute riffs and pop culture, will be the protected songs of the century! Out of this world!

Best Pink Floyd song of them all. Strange story- Sid Barrett, former leader of the band who went on a bad acid trip that he never returned from, showed up at the studio when they were recording this song about him, fat, bald and nearly unrecognizab l e . Members of Floyd each thought one of the others invited him, but none did.

Gorgeous, leading me on to a conclusion of beauty and infinite sadness, which by the way is shallow and double edged like a sword. Beauty is ...leaving me in a place of forevermore returning to pink.
