Pink Floyd. What're your favorite albums? Songs?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Decoyx7, Apr 20, 2012.

  1. What's everyone's favorite Pink Floyd albums and songs? General question. I've been in a very Pink Floyd feel lately, what with spring and summer coming. I feel that the cool sunny mornings and chilled out evenings are great sitting and listening to Atom Heart Mother or Meddle. And the warm nights are set perfect with Wish You Were Here or Dark Side.

    I think my favorite albums are:
    1. Meddle
    2. Atom Heart Mother
    3. Dark Side of the Moon
    4. Wish You Were Here
    5. The Wall

    What about you guys?

    Tough to choose, but "The Wall" came out when I was a freshman in HS, so is a memorable part of my life. "Have a Cigar" and "Comfortably Numb" are my favorite PF tunes, but there are so many others that are great.

    I think Dark Side of the Moon is their best album, but Meddle is my favorite. That said, my favorite song is probably Breathe (I even made a mix for myself that connects parts 1 & 2)

    As great as DSOTM and WYWH are, my fave has to be Animals. It is a band at the height of its collective power and influence making a ferocious statement, and accompanying it with some truly stunning playing and production. For Gilmour in particular, it is a tour de force.

  9. My list would be very very similar. I might swap out The Wall for the More soundtrack - even if it's not an album in the same way, I've always really liked it a lot, and I was never a huge The Wall fan.

    one of my fav. songs is "Green is the Color" off of the more soundtrack.....
  12. I think I like the mid-period albums between Piper/Saucer and The Wall because Richard Wright was more involved in songwriting.

    Edit: nevermind that was Waters! lol... but I still do like Wright's songs a lot
  13. Animals

    Many favourites, but topping the list, for me, are:



    Wish You Were Here


    Dogs is probably my favourite track off Animals.

    I can't choose from Wish You Were Here. The whole album is just that great.

    Everything prior to Dark Side of the Moon. Probably Umma Gumma #1, but hard to say.

    I really like all of their albums, even The Final Cut!

    If I had to pick a favorite album it would be Dark Side Of The Moon with Time as my favorite track.
