Following on from James and his eyePod, Nickster has a suggestion that might give you something to think about over the weekend (and if you consider yourself part of the so-called ‘iPod generation’, then this should appeal to you).
Name two songs that work well when played back-to-back (one must be a David Gilmour/Pink Floyd track) and name it accordingly. For example, ‘Hotel Smile’ (‘Hotel California’ and David’s ‘Smile’) or ‘Purple Numb’ (Purple Haze’ and Pink Floyd’s ‘Comfortably Numb’).
If you think of the way David changed the order of the ‘On An Island’ material on tour, for example, or of Pink Floyd’s ‘Echoes’ retrospective, you’ll see how different songs segue into one another with varying degrees of success.
So we want to know which song you feel blends rather nicely into another without a break (and we don’t want long lists of these, please!). Perhaps you could give three examples (two of David’s solo songs, two Pink Floyd songs and a combination of songs, one of which must apply to David in some way)?
No prize for this one, it’s just for fun. There’ll be another competition next week.
Thank you all for the messages you left for Dick Parry. We’ll make sure that he sees them.
Enjoy what’s left of the World Cup – the best of luck to the four teams involved – and don’t forget that Pink Floyd’s ‘P.U.L.S.E’ DVD is out on Monday in Brazil, Israel, South Africa and all of Europe – except for Austria, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy and Switzerland, where it was released yesterday (the lucky sods).
