Seeing as I discovered this thread the other day, I'll just wish a very Happy Birthday to Dave Gilmour! Somebody else who's music we have been blessed with.

Didn't know about the Ticket To Ride thing! That's a cool mistake indeed.

My dad is a huge Pink Floyd fan, so I've heard a lot of them over the years, but I must say Dark side of the moon is one of the most perfect albums I've ever heard. In general.

^^ Agree with you there, Linde. It's one of my favourite albums too.

My parents aren't very big Floyd fans, my mom only really likes them up until Syd left, and my dad only likes The Wall, so it's me who's urging them to listen to them :)

I kind of prefer Wish You Were Here. Especially for Shine on You Crazy Diamond, and all the stories around it.

Yeah me too but that album (great as it is) just feels a little sad for me, in general. Did you watch the documentary that was on about it a few weeks ago?

Yeah, I did. That tragic story about Syd being there for the recording of Crazy Diamond and no one recognising him! My favourite Syd story has him marching down Oxford Street in the early 70s, one of his friends passing him and then realising who it was and going running after him. "Syd! Syd! Where are you going?" Syd turned and looked at him and said, "Far further than you could ever imagine." I wrote a poem around that line. Been putting poems on the poetry thread the past few days, and been asked for more. That might be one to dig out.

I know most people like PF from 'Dark Side Of The Moon' on, but there's a lot of terrific music to be found in the albums that preceded it.  Especially the two precursors, 'Obscured By Clouds' and 'Meddle'.

E is for 'Ergent'.

I'm a great fan of Pink Floyd, although at first I couldn't appreciate The Wall very much: it took a few years while I was a bit depressed, and then I fell in love with it (in 2011 I went to see Roger Waters twice!

But my favourite song ever is Echoes (if you can just call it "song"...)

I suppose so haha. I remember the first time I listened to it, my sister came down and she said ''what's that noise''? Noise? How dare you? :) She didn't realise it was a PF song.

My favorite Pink Floyd song is "Learning to Fly." The one and only time I've ever bought something from a TV advertisement was for the "Echoes" compilation CD just so I could get that song.

Don't really like that song at all. Find it a bit boring, and the lyrics aren't what I consider to be ''true'' PF lyrics. After all, the song's about learning to fly a plane, how deep can the lyrics be? (tho I know it's aparently a metaphor for a new situation, change). Proves that they weren't the same after Roger Waters left, in my opinion.

Fair enough, I didn't mean to sound critical (to you). Here's an apple01 for a fellow Pf fan :)

I like The Wall. It's a little creepy and depressing, but I still like it.

Yeah, it's the last Floyd I like. It's a bit unusual for Floyd, having a big lyrically unified Who-type rock opera, but the production's great and there's even a couple of nearly-funky tracks. And of course those great Gilmour solos on "Comfortably Numb".

For anyone who can listen in, on BBC Radio 2 on Monday the 26th there's two programmes celebrating the anniversary of 'Dark Side Of the Moon', starting at 20.00 UK time; followed by another looking at their whole career. More info here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b038xr3n and here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/pr.....2013/08/26

I think you might be able to listen live online if you're not in the Uk, though I don't know for sure.

Yeah you certainly are able to listen to it even if you're not in the UK! I've listened to it a few times, and to BBC radio 1 as well. I quite like the BBC radiostations, actually.

Anyway, that's awesome, thanks, I hope I'll have time to listen to it!

I don't like anything after The Wall.  The Wall is the album where Roger Waters ruined Pink Floyd.  It's a good enough album, though.

Personally, I would recommend hearing Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful of Secrets, Atom Heart Mother, and Meddle.
