    That would be interesting.  Or are you celebrating an early April Fool's Day?

    Quite exquisite.

    Note:  Fischer-Dieskau was in the cast of the Otello recording played on KUSC FM this morning.

    Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

    So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again.
    The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

    Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone, the song is over,
    Thought I'd something more to say.

    A great song, MileHi (none / 0) (#13)

    That would be my second choice (see my post below).

    Thanks to the amazing synchonicity of Dark Side of the Rainbow, I can no longer listen to that song (or even read the lyrics) without picturing in my mind Dorothy running (cycling) away from home and meeting Professor Marvel.


    That should have read ... (none / 0) (#14)

    "... the wicked witch arriving (cycling) and Dorothy running away ..."

    If you doubt this phenomenon, watch the movie and the music synchonized. So many precisely matching song/scene transitions and lyric/action coincidences cannot possibly be accidental, IMO. Whatever the band members may claim, someone produced DSOM as a soundtrack to The Wizard of Oz.


    Thanks cymro. (none / 0) (#19)

    Even after 36 years, Gilmour's guitar solo in the middle of Time still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand-up.  I've always related quite closely with the lyrics as well.  

    DSOTM was unfortunately the beginning of the end of Pink Floyd per Waters.

    As far as the whole DSOTR thing, its no more strange than Syd showing up in the studio unannounced and unrecognized as they were recording their tribute to him, Shine On You Crazy Diamond.

    Richard Wright spoke about the session, saying: "One thing that really stands out in my mind, that I'll never forget; I was going in to the "Shine On" sessions. I went in the studio and I saw this guy sitting at the back of the studio, he was only as far away as you are from me. And I didn't recognise him. I said, 'Who's that guy behind you?' 'That's Syd.' And I just cracked up, I couldn't believe it... he had shaven all his hair off... I mean, his eyebrows, everything... he was jumping up and down brushing his teeth, it was awful. And, uh, I was in, I mean Roger was in tears, I think I was; we were both in tears. It was very shocking... seven years of no contact and then to walk in while we're actually doing that particular track. I don't know - coincidence, karma, fate, who knows? But it was very, very, very powerful"

    DSOTR--coincidence, karma, fate?  That's up to each of us to decide.  It could well be that a young Roger Waters saw something while watching the Wizard of Oz that stuck with him subconsciencely.  It sure scared the crap out of me as a kid.

    If it wasn't 1 am  (or 2 am, depending on when I count my clock as turning ahead) I would be on my feet. Thanks!

    Query:  does "Time" fit that label?  Nice sax solo.

    A classic Stones track from their 1974 album It's Only Rock 'n Roll. Rarely played live, probably because Ronnie Wood just can't play lead like Mick Taylor did.

    The full track plays on this YouTube montage of static shots only. Play this first!

    Another YouTube montage has much more interesting video, but stupidly fades out the last 2 minutes of the song, which ruins it musically for me.
