The 10 Heaviest Songs of Pink Floyd



The opening track from the band’s 1971 collection Meddle, the collection that saw Floyd starting to move far from the space rock of their prior collections, working in a more characterized way and starting to veer towards reason. For some the side-long Echoes is the thing that makes Meddle such a critical collection in the Floyd group. Be that as it may, the bass-overwhelming instrumental opener, with Nick Mason’s intensely affected “One of nowadays I’m going to cut you into little pieces” talked intermission the main vocal. In the 80s, when performed live, the unbelievable Pink Floyd pig, Algie, would fly menacingly over the group of onlookers.

7.THE GOLD, IT’S IN THE… (1972)

Floyd came back to work with Iranian film chief Barbet Schroeder on his odd voyage of self-revelation La Vallee, set in the wildernesses of Papua New Guinea, naming their soundtrack Obscured By Clouds.

4.THE THIN ICE (1979)

The second track from The Wall is just about a segue of the opener, recounting the narrative of the focal Pink character growing up (opening with the end crying kid from In The Flesh).
