9 beers and now listening to The Wall. This is my favorite album and has to be one of the darkest, deepest out there. “Water describes the “wall” that he sees built around people cutting them off from each other and leaving them frightened and lonely inside. As the wall is built and the figure inside gets more crazy, there are attacks on those he sees laying the bricks – school teacher, mother, lover and wife etc.” To the wall fans out there who know what the albums about and not just a couple of songs from the cd, Do you think this figure could be helped or does he just get crazier and numb?

"Comfortably Numb" - an excellent tune.

I hear that there are people who take drugs and listen to that album/cd. They say it enhances the experience.

Liked it a lot when I was younger, then I stopped smoking pot & I got a job. Now it's just pretty good music, not mind expanding or anything, though I do like Gilmore.


BTW, you guys do realize that Waters is a socialist right?

When the album came out, I heard a radio interview with Waters where he explained the thought process of the album.

The mother / school part was from a friend who kept complaining to Waters about his over-bearing mother.

The hotel / being sick / concert thing was when he was on a prior tour (animals or Wish you were here: don't remember), and he got really sick.

A doctor gave him a shot so he could get through that evening's show, but the shot made it worse.

He said that concert had the feeling of a Nurenburg rally, and he could tell the crowd to do something,,, anything,, and they would.

He talked about how there was one kid in the front row, and Waters gave him the finger motion to come closer, and when the kid did, Waters spit on him.

It was strange listening to it.

BTW,
Without anyone doing a google search, or getting the album out,, can anyone answer who played the groupie in the hotel room?

At the time, I thought it strange to hear it was her, given the kind of music she was putting out at the time.

"Wanna take a bath?"

Ny favorite

Ooooo Babe
Don't leave me now
Don't say it's the end of the road
Remember the flowers I sent
I need you, Babe
To put through the shredder in front of my friends
Oh Babe
Don't leave me now
How could you go?
When you know how I need you
To beat to a pulp on a Saturday night
Oh Babe
Don't leave me now
How can you treat me this way?
Running away
Oooo Babe
Why are you running away?

Very Very good album/group, probably one of my favorites of all time.

The dark side of the moon would rank up their pretty high too.

This lyric from "Have a cigar" comes from the the band's distaste for Music Labels whose big wigs they would meet would say shit like "Your stuff is great" but didn't even know the names of the guys in the band. The record execs would think "Pink" was a band member.

The name was taken from one of Syd Barret's recordings with blues players Pink Anderson and Floyd Council.

there is nothing deep about it. music doesn't mean anything, its just a bunch of sounds that you bought.

Eating mushrooms and watching the movie "The Wall" sure is a vivid combo.

Some music in particular stirs deep emotions and thoughts in people. Pink Floyd seems to have that effect on a great deal of people that really listen to it. Much more deep as you put it than say the Back Street Boys, wouldn't you say???

I don't know, I'm not overly emotional--I don't cry when I hear November Rain.

and AR82 was the one who said it was deep.

I had a friend at college take 2 hits of acid and watch "Apocalypse Now" He just sat and didn't move the whole movie. He was 6'-4" 225 lbs shotputter. He did look at one asian person a little funny on the way out of the movie........

I think it's "Mr. Floyd to Mrs. Floyd"

He was calling his estranged wife, but she didn't want to take his call.

Makes me feel as if she had a another lover already and had given up on him...
