More likely Busby Berkeley. The style just doesn't ring (cough) true to Fritz Lang.

I used to own this album and liked it when it was new. Now I find it as ponderous and plodding as a WWI British tank. Whether this is my personal evolution or the onset of dementia I shall see (or not).

Or both!
However, I seem to recall from another thread Bill mentioning that due to broadcasting regulations he is restricted to playing a maximum of two(?) tracks from any given album in a one-hour period.        . . . or something like that . . .

Couldn't agree more! Quite the religious experience, and I'm nowhere (or at was nowhere) near the Floyd fanatic that many people I know are. Was wholly in awe of the show. Even felt more prescient with the current goings on in politics. Just can't recommend this tour enough.

for me, fast forward about 10-15 years...different type of car, stereo...but those lyrics you quoted....That's why I fell in love with PF...and why this is my favorite song ever.  LONG LIVE RP!!

Shocked!  Shocked, I tell you, to find this Time piece has garnered only an average 9.1.  So shocked am I that I've broken down and decided to exercise one of my remaining rights, and I've, therefore, rated a song.  Yes, you read write: I've rated my first song here on RP. A 10 (ten).  The injustice of a mere 9.x will never be righted, I know, but far off in the infinite future, if there is any justice in this existence, the rating for this song will at least asymptotically approach the level it deserves. I can sleep forever now knowing I did what I could in my time.

I noticed the same thing, ziggytrix - maybe it's something to do with "former" members?  Or (and BillG maybe you can chime in) maybe it's related to ratings from the App not showing up on the web page?  At work I have the webpage up to read comments, etc., and listen from my phone, and I've noticed songs I first rated via the app do not show my ratings on the web page when the song comes on. In fact, I tried to update a rating and/or rate on the web page and it wouldn't take at all.  Odd for sure....

Had it rated at 10 but as "Time" passes I like it more and more.  A 12 for now,...maybe more later.  Now it's up the volume and watch the speakers dance!

This song has a wonderful sensual quality to it.  Whimsical, almost wistful.
