I don't find either of them that depressing. But I guess I'll go with Time since I turned 40 this year.

Shorter of breath and one day closer to death. Check this post tomorrow.

So, I listened to Wish You Were Here, and the song is depressing as hell.

What I didn't know was that Syd actually showed up at the recordings for that album and had shaved all of the hair off his body before hand. Found that whole thing fascinating.

I can't think of a worse group for you to listen to as we approach what I assume is another killer Jike weekend. Maybe Elliot Smith?

Tennessee River is about 15 miles from here. I'll try not to take a swim while fully clothed and then stay in the river while a passenger boat comes by.

All 165 Pink Floyd songs ranked worst to first

Like most ranking lists, I have plenty of disagreements, but there are some interesting tidbits about the band within the comments about the songs. A decent read for Floyd fans.
Ballz: So, I fucking got a BJ for $250 total, and wore a rubber. It sucked, I couldnt even feel it, so i jeckyled onto her tits. She was cute. Not even that far out of my league, it was a waste of $250

Thank you Prez. This was an enjoyable read. I can't really quibble with the rankings, because I don't really know the early Syd Barrett stuff, but the author seems to like that quite a bit and has those songs ranked high.

He also seems to hate the band, so I am sort of surprised he took the time to do this. The best part was the stories about the band that were included in the rankings.

I really enjoy The Final Cut album quite a bit, and the author seems to hate it. :beatsme:

Is it my imagination or was this written by a guy who doesn't like Pink Floyd and doesn't think they have more than a dozen or so good songs?

Maybe they'll hire Jike to write a similarly composed Beatles article.

I didn't read it, but if it's your imagination that it looks like #fp is running some new software that allows him to get inside your imagination (which would surprise no one, by the way), because he already said the same thing.

That's my fault. I think I blacked out when I got to the part where he says he likes The Final Cut and didn't remember reading the other part of his post. The Final Cut is terrible.

Wish You Were Here is my 2nd favorite Floyd song, no qualms there.

Really? I still listen to the Final Cut all the time. I am shocked that people don't like it. Maybe we can have cheese weigh in on its merits as a Pink Floyd album, and if he likes it we will know that it is awful.
