Yes! Can't do that often enough. Only down side is it's so late/early that I can't turn it up to 11, lest the neighbours complain.

Must admit I've never heard the version with whales... sounds a bit New Age for me, think I'll still to the original which seems just fine.

Here's the deal, George:

"The Great Gig In The Sky is the best song in the world, ever. End of. Contained within it is every human emotion any of us have, or ever will, feel.No need for words. No language. No translation. Pure emotion.

Its got it all. You may not like it, but it is entire, complete.To say faultless, however would be to contradict its human quality. After all none of us are.

I've often thought that the English language is seriously lacking in expression for feelings and emotions.We simply do not have the words.We have to say "it's like this" or "it's like that" to try to convey these things, rather than directly say what it is.The Great Gig In The Sky goes straight round the problem and in doing so transcends language and nationhood.No need for description of the emotion being conveyed. Turn it up, Close your eyes, You can feel that."

———-

Clare Torry (and Richard Wright) was sublime, profound, authentic, transcendent on this. It was one of those things that couldn't be done again exactly, or faked or manufactured - a one-off and she did it in the first or second take if I recall correctly, and on short notice with little or no rehearsal which makes it even more astounding.

It was a channeling of a fleeting, ethereal spiritual muse that by stroke of luck got captured on tape. We are all very fortunate for that.

Saw the Australian Pink Floyd earlier this year, and when this track approached, I cringed a little bit. Not easy to pull off. But huge credit to the three girls, they smashed it. Note perfect. And I'm really critical of tribute bands. If you get the chance to go see these guys, I thoroughly recommend it. 

 
My sentiments exactly... they totally nailed it on this song and they're well worth seeing.
