Agreed – though there are times that Seamus tries my patience – but then dogs often have that effect on me 😉

Me too, but I love the piano (and everything else) in that song.  It’s Floyd’s Honeypie moment! 

A very apt description – never thought of it that way, but it fits.

I used to love playing that song when Sandi was young and would still think that it was a real dog barking. It used to drive her nuts. Dogs did too. 

My first dog did as well. As a matter of fact, she had an odd reaction whenever I played ‘Dogs’ from Animals. If you recall there are two breaks in which dogs are barking. In one, it is a recording of real dogs and in the other, artificial barking created from a synth (or a Moog, or whatever…). She would bark at the artificial dogs but not the real ones. I always found that funny. Miss that dog. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Actually, I believe that it is the sound of actual dogs, but it’s been filtered through a vocoder.

I’m not a huge Floyd fan, but does anyone else think that Meddle is their best album?  Sure it has the infamous Seamus, but the rest of the songs on side 1 are all fantastic!  Also, Echoes might be the single best track they ever put out.  I dunno, I just think Meddle is a very chilled out album, and that just appeals to me.

 

(my 2nd favorite is Animals btw)

Yes, I think Meddle is the best. I also like A Saucerful of Secrets.

I used to sit in the afternoon sun and smoke and think of all the things I had to do and wasn’t doing, and just sing along to “I’ll climb that hill in my own way, just wait around for the right day…”

My 3 fav are 1) Wish You Were Here 2) Animals 3) Meddle -> “One Of These Days” is an awesome opening song!

I find Dark Side Of The Moon & The Wall way too overrated and don’t listen to them as much.

I think all of their albums from 1971-1979 are brilliant.  The Wall is probably my least favorite of these, but it’s still a masterpiece.

I think it’s up there but personally like Wish You Were Here the most (at the moment anyway).

One of my 3 or 4 faves…they even get relatively funky in part vii or thereabouts of crazy diamond

Cant remember if I posted but i listened to ‘Wish You Were Here’ a while back and enjoyed it. Strangely however I have had zero desire to listen to anything else Pink Floydy since. Cannot find any desire to play their music.

Currently listening to Division Bell; I haven’t heard it in yonks but I was sorta brainwashed with it when I was small, as Silly Dad used to play it quite a lot. Good stuff it is too. 

I wonder if there’s a Multiplication Bell? Hmm… there’s an idea… the Pink Floyd equivalent of The Rutles… call them Orange Max or something. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I listened to The Dark Side Of The Moon last night in the dark on headphones, and WOW.

It was INCREDIBLE. 

I’ve only heard it about eight hundred times in the past six months, but the effect was wholly new… it was like listening for the first time, only everything was familiar. Everything jumped out with astonishing clarity, and the normal effects of the songs– the creepiness of ‘On The Run’, for instance– was multiplication-belled by a hundred. Now, normally, it’s kind of weird, but it’s just another Pink Floyd thing, y’know? But at night, it was a whole nuther story. I was lying there, transfixed, with my eyes wide open, overwhelmed by the madness that was trickling into my ears and flooding my brain; thinking, This would be great for the BBhouse torture room– just give ’em all headphones, turn out the lights, and play ‘On The Run’ on an endless loop– they’d go troppo! Never have I been so relieved to hear those alarm clocks. 

I’ve also decided that ‘Breathe’ is my favourite– sorry, ‘Time’; there’s just something about it that speaks to me (no pun intended). It gives me this sense of homecoming, like it’s the place you began, and the place you’ll end– which really fits in nicely with the concept– from the very first to the very last, you breathe– it’s like the definition of life. And heartbeat, which is sort of woven into it all. And *wildly makes 360° turn from conceptual to technical* I like the lazily up-strummed guitar. 

Anyways, yes, I shall be doing this more often. New Year resolution, perhaps?

I see @pepperland has an awesome new sig quote:

Yep, Pink Floyd are one of my many favourite bands. I’d say just below the Beatles and just above the Who.

I know this is crazy but I honestly think PF deserve more attention and are underrated although I’m sure some people disagree.

I guess I’m one of the ones who disagree. They had massive publicity at various times in their careers (including the “reunion” at Live 8), albums made into movies and some albums that sold gazillions. I’m not sure what more attention they could get?
