So love this album.  Fitting tribute to my cousin.  Played as we walked into his funeral.  So many singing it, with tears in their eyes.

Maybe I accidently hit the PSD button and stepped into this "I wish I could rate it an 11" track just now, and I am NOT complaining.  In fact, I logged on specifically to shout out to BillG and THANK YOU for offering a LOSSLESS format on the Android App....and how fitting that one of the first songs I hear with the new setting is one of my 11 11-rated songs.  SUPER AWESOME, and LONG LIVE RP!!

I always wonder if a band, while recording a legendary album, recognizes what they're doing. Did they feel this, and not feel it when they did Division Bell? What did they feel? Why didn't they stop, rethink it, and try again? (This isn't about the presence of Waters, but the idea that a band might recognize that the planets had aligned for this moment, allowing them to make great art. You could ask the same question of Peter Gabriel making So and then making Scratch my Back.)

There is actually the slightest little smidgin of life in this one. Damn, there is actually even the slightest little teensy weensy bit of human emotion as well. A rare thing from The Void. They musta woke up and realize they missed the guy.

When you first learn the guitar, and someone teaches you the opening stanza, you feel on top of the world. Easy to play, and oh so cool. Good one RP.

I agree.  There is so much great music out there.  This just happens to be better than 99.99% of it.  Happy Holidays, and may you have a healthy and prosperous New Year!    {#Cheers}

You gotta love hearing the fingers scratching on the guitar strings on the first eight bars.

Damn the sound mixing board....pure, unadulterated RnR straight ahead, captain!

I believe this is sound effects to create the illusion that Gilmour is listening to himself on a bad radio (maybe AM), and then starts to play along (when the guitar sounds clearer). You can hear him clear his throat right before he starts to play.  Just my guess.

 
I read somewhere that David revealed that he had recorded the AM radio tuning and interfearence noises in his Ford Cortina.

I would love to know what Derick had thought of this "star nonsence".

Sorry Lazarus - the "it's" is a contraction, not a possessive. So the apostrophe stays. And that is the last point of Sweet Virginia's (apostrophe denoting possession) post with which I agree. The term "All Time Classic" gets bandied about a little easily but not in this case

 

Nope... it is a possessive its which means it should not have its apostrophe and it should be its... the apostrophe is only for a contraction of it is to it's... hope life is grand for you right this minute, Will62...

How I wish, how I wish i had a beer
We're just two programmers coding in a cubicle, line after line,
Running over the same old code.
What have we found?

There's nothin like hearing fingers scratching the strings...no over production, no filtering, etc.

This is real music...you can tell a smile from a veil.
