This was an interesting period for PF, because it seemed that by then none of them were holding anything back. It was as if they were really confident that they were out from under the shadow of being Syd's band, free at last from trying to maintain or mimic such a fissile and tragic psychedelic trajectory, and they were exploring what they could do on the merits of their own creativity. Waters' lyrics and arrangements became more dramatic and narrative, more insightful and mature, and Gilmour's guitar was more often satisfyingly throaty and saturated, even when not the center of attention. While they were still really all over the place on this record, in spots in Childhood's End, I hear clear hints of the symphonic scope and tightly focused grandeur of their next album, Dark Side of the Moon.

That was my thought... "Is this a Norman Greenbaum song?" It took me a second to place it. Nice to hear a gem. One of the reasons I stick with RP.

I agree almost completely with what you say, although really, to each their own, right?  I understand you like it because so do I and I get that.  Having watched the film (which I liked better than the reviews it got) and understanding the "Obscured by Clouds" reference, I also understand how this song fit in to the film.  I did see the film after knowing (and really liking) the song - I was well known for cranking this on my awesome car stereo, and making people try to guess who this was. 

10 on this song for me.

First, the Ramones started out as a Bay City Rollers bubble gum pop band—check out this week's ish of Rolling Stone with the Ramones on the cover. Second, I think it's highly likely that Donald Trump learned the art of the comb-over from Don Kirshner.
 
The Ramones were from Queens.

The Rollers were from Scotland.

I always loved this album.  Not your usual PF album, but it was still an incredible album. The band always seemed to have a different approach when doing soundtracks as opposed to their other albums.

One great trivia bit about this album I learned from reading Nick Mason's book was that they were busy recording DSotM, and took a "break" to travel to the south of France to write and record this album.  Think about that...they needed a break from the demands of DSotM, and their idea of a break was to go to France and record a soundtrack album.  Work ethic there.

Excuse me, but where did you come up with this nonsense?

The Ramones began playing gigs in mid-1974, with their first show at Performance Studios in New York City. The band, performing in a style similar to the one used on their debut album, typically performed at clubs in downtown Manhattan, specifically CBGB and Max's Kansas City. In early 1975, Lisa Robinson, an editor of Hit Parader and Rock Scene, saw the fledgling Ramones performing at CBGB and subsequently wrote about the band in several magazine issues. The group's vocalist Joey Ramone related that "Lisa came down to see us, she was blown away by us. She said that we changed her life, She started writing about us in Rock Scene, and then Lenny Kaye would write about us and we started getting more press like The Village Voice. Word was getting out, and people starting coming down." Convinced that the band needed a recording contract, Robinson contacted Danny Fields, former manager of the Stooges, and argued that he needed to manage the band. Fields agreed because the band "had everything ever liked," and became the manager in November 1975.

On September 19, 1975, the Ramones recorded a demo at 914 Sound Studios, which was produced by Marty Thau. Featuring the songs "Judy Is a Punk" and "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend," the band used the demo to showcase their style to prospective labels. Producer Craig Leon, who had seen the Ramones perform in the summer of 1975, brought the demo to the attention of Sire Records' president Seymour Stein. After being persuaded by Craig Leon and his ex-wife Linda Stein, the Ramones auditioned at Sire and were offered a contract, although the label had previously signed only European progressive rock bands. Drummer Tommy Ramone recalled: "Craig Leon is the one who got us signed, single handed. He brought down the vice president and all these people—he's the only hip one in the company. He risked his career to get us on the label." The label offered to release "You're Gonna Kill That Girl" as a single, but the band declined, insisting on recording an entire album. Sire accepted their request and agreed to release a studio album instead.

The memories of a man in his old age
Are the deeds of a man in his prime 

presage 

The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Amazingly prescient for men so young.

And BECAUSE I hear Spirit in the Sky ALL OVER IT - I have to give it a 1.  Sounds like a total rip off to me.
