My Favorite Things

BD219I often get asked, “What’s your favorite Floyd song”?   That’s easy but I was recently asked, “If you had to pick one favorite song from each of Pink Floyd’s fifteen albums, what would they be”?  Not so easy.  I pondered over many tracks from each album and it was difficult to narrow it to just one but I did it and this podcast is the result.  See if you agree.  Here’s the playlist

  2. Great!!! I woke this morning and when I was going to work, I found your podcast. What makes me happy is to see your perspective to choose with incredible and admireble intelligence and knowing about life and sound. It´s very rare to do this and you make with “maestria”.

  3. Another killer podcast from the Doc!

    I was thrilled to hear that I’m not the only lunatic that (slightly) favors “Any Colour You Like” from DSOTM.

  4. This is one of my favorite of your shows. It gives great insight into you as well as bringing some great versions of some of these songs to light in a different way.

    Thanks, as always, for your effort, and for your personal treat.

  5. Nice selection, Doc! I like the Saucerful off the live portion of Ummagumma best. Gilmour’s vocals in the fourth portion are hauntingly beautiful.
    I think I have to listen to this again to see if you ever explicitly mention your very favorite. It sounded like you were saying it is High Hopes, but it wasn’t clear if that was simply your fave off TDB.

    Thanks again for all your hard work!

    • You’re welcome Mike and thank you! I actually don’t mention my explicitly favorite song which is “Pigs d3o” but it is included. High Hopes is my favorite off TDB.

      • Yeah, that’s a great one. Especially from the ’77 tour. BTW, just to be clear Saucerful is my favorite of Ummagumma, not all time. That’d be hard to nail down for me. So many different eras. It’s like trying to pick a favorite child!

  6. dude..I LOOVE YOU!!..this would be extremely difficult,,u chose at least 3 of my choices which meant A LOT TO ME…alans bfast was the bomb to me growing up…any colour you like is one fucking crazy jam that i have loved forever….and WYWH is my daughter and i song..(proper grammr?)..thank you so much.

  7. Lucifer Sam,remember a day, Ibiza bar,the narrow way,summer ’68,fearless,childhood’s end,time,have a cigar (any live version 1975-77),dogs,comfortably numb,the final cut,sorrow, poles apart, skins.

  8. I’m (pleasantly) surprised at how many of your choices correspond to mine. Very much looking forward to listening to this podcast!

  9. Hey Doc.
    I really really enjoy your podcasts, and especially all your comments.
    I’m looking forward to listen to this one. It’s some very interresting choices, but I agree, it would be very hard to pick one song from each album, maybe two would be easier.
    Keep up the good work!

  10. Can’t wait to listen to this one. I would have been sure ,your favorite song on meddle, would be echoes. Lol
    I love your picks, some of mine would be echoes from meddle, summer of 68 from atom heart mother, us and them from the dark side, have a cigar from wywh, comfortable numb from the wall, the final cut ,from the final cut, yet another movie from a momentary lapse of reason , what do you want from me from the division bell, and louder then words from endless river. Dude this was a great idea for a podcast. Thankyou for doing this.

  11. Love your podcasts! This one was especially cool. Anything that acknowledges all of the albums is always appreciated. I may have had a few different picks, but enjoyed yours! Good work, Dr.!
