I wandered into my mind to put my finger on what the term meant, too. The gutter isn't very deep, so I wasn't there for long. Being teetotal, or nearly so, alcohol didn't immediatley spring to mind, but it eventually came to me...

I think ultimately, we can be victims of Pink Floyd: especially Roger Waters.

1975  when this came out and I was a jr in HS.  By then I was out of the posters and sticker phase.  I had a fairly nice normal looking bedroom.  But this sticker came in the album and was firmly planted smack dab in the center of the door to my room.

I was in school in the 80s and the people who were into Pink Floyd were all about The Wall. I didn't hear this until much later. It's very special indeed.

I must be younger than y'all. Only takes me back to 1994. :)  Still, college... I miss having nothing to do.

I was 15 when this came out and it amazes me to think how then. I would just ignore "that slow song at the beginning" and rally around "Have a Cigar " and "Welcome to the Machine".  Youth - meh.  

Now "Shine on" at the beginning and end are what this album, and Pink Floyd in general is all about.  I think, the end version is my pick for best of the two, but usually my favorite is which ever playing at the time.

Camping at a racetrack in West Virginia a few years back. Must be around 11PM on a starlit evening. Camp fires can be seen glimmering here and there. Out of the darkness this song comes on. Whoever decided to play it so we could all hear it, THANK YOU!!!! A surreal moment I will never forget.

Finally. Wondered when i'd hear Younger Brother followed by Pink Floyd or vice versa. Both 10's.

I don't listen to Pink Floyd a lot, neither would I claim they were a huge part of my youth.  I was a latecomer to the Floyd party but this song is as close to perfection as anything I can think of.  Makes the day a whole lot better.

Try playing this video: https://youtu.be/4tBWakZAGqU of a marine iguana foraging in the Galapagos during the first couple minutes of the song. I am sure someone talented could mash the two together quite nicely.

Maybe the best peace of music ever produced, with the undoubtley best (not the fastest but the one with the most feeling and accurate playing) performed by the most unique and possibly greatest band in history of music on its artistic peak.

and played on the best radio station on the planet

thx bill and rebecca you always manage to pause busy routine life to an inspiring pause

THIS SONG perhaps more than any other personifies the Yin and Yang of every extraordinary thing about Pink Floyd... I can honestly say that every single time I hear it, I might discover new and exciting things; in 1988, on one of my cross country road-trips with my Siamese Cat, Syd (his name was no co-incidence), we had to pull over to listen to that special, wild, almost Ornette Coleman-like sax-rant we caught right as it all begins to fade out...and, for example, just now, I noticed, only a minute or so into it, like, for the first time, how Rick Wright's haunting keyboard magic joins Nick Mason's amazing percussion in what must have been their quintessential heartfelt funeral dirge for the death of the inspirational spirit of Syd — without whose early vision, ambition, and pure manifestation of imagination and talent for expression none of them would have had the slightest income.  David Gilmour's unmatched knack for making his wicked Strat guitar sound just like a squawking sax is on full display in this song, and it's simply breathtaking! With Roger Waters' brainstem-grabbing bass-work and withering missile-strikes of cynical poetry — an endless barrage of little but deadly mind-mines planted firmly behind all the theatrics and sonic artistry — well, if you add up even any of it, I think that what you have is an unmistakably all-out, no holds barred ode to their lost and dearly missed friend and enigmatic band-mate that is also undoubtedly A
TRUE AND ETERNAL MASTERPIECE...

Used this music for a slide show which was made by me and some classmates acting in it.

Now THAT was funny! Bed spin....as a native English speaker I'm sure you must have experienced it already. Not making fun or pointing any fingers, as I'm experiencing it right now. Due to a certain Dutch beer brand, just to be very clear - no link with my location! (which needs updating anyway)

Well said John.

Some people find that bed spin can be controlled by placing one foot on the floor.

A friend in high school in Barcelona got wasted on Anis del Mono (imagine that!) and experienced sidewalk spin. He found he could stop the spinning by grabbing the edges of the sidewalk with both hands.

Ah, youth!
