Pink Floyd - The Great Gig In The Sky
Copyright - 1973 Capitol Records
"The Great Gig in the Sky" is the fifth track from English progressive rock band Pink Floyd's 1973 album, The Dark Side of the Moon. It features soaring voice instrumental music by Clare Torry. The song was called either "The Religion Song"or "The Mortality Sequence" during recording.
In an interview, Torry mentioned that she was trying to emulate an instrument. So it was, from all published accounts, an improvisation with Torry apparently using her songwriting skills to give it form and function.
In fact, she mentions in her interview that she was never clearly told that the song was about death. In a different interview on the DVD "The Dark Side of the Moon" (Eagle Vision EV 30042-9 US NTSC version), Richard Wright mentions that she began singing words and they knew they didn't want that. Published interviews mention that she recorded the takes very quickly - on the DVD, the track sheet shows two tracks (four takes) used for her vocals.
In her interview, she mentions that an accountant at Abbey Road called her; other interviews with band members mentioned that Alan Parsons suggested her.
Chris Thomas, who was brought in to assist Alan Parsons in mixing the album mentions that they were actually in mixdown at the time. On the DVD, various members mention that they had this song and weren't quite sure what to do with it. Wright further mentions that when she finished, she was apologetic about her performance even though those present were amazed at her improvisation.
In Torry's interview she mentions that she left thinking that it wouldn't be included on the final cut. In fact, she states that the only way she knew it was used was when she saw it at a local record store, saw her name in the credits and purchased it.
During live performances by Pink Floyd, up to three singers were used, each taking different parts of the song. For example, Durga McBroom performed on the A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell tours, as well as at Knebworth and on Gilmour's solo tours.
Aside from the soaring vocals there are two spoken parts, an introduction at 0:38 spoken by Gerry O'Driscoll (an Irish Abbey Road Studios doorman at the time), and Puddie Watts' (wife of roadie Peter Watts) voice at 3:33.
In 2004, Torry sued Pink Floyd and EMI for songwriting royalties, on the basis that her contribution to "Great Gig in the Sky" constituted co-authorship with Rick Wright; originally, she was paid the standard Sunday flat studio rate of £30. In 2005, a settlement was reached in High Court in Torry's favour, although terms were not disclosed. In the P*U*L*S*E DVD booklet, "The Great Gig in the Sky" is credited to Wright and "vocal composition by Clare Torry".
Most of the song is a slightly altered arrangement of the beat and bassline from the song "Breathe". The beat and bassline were very much part of Pink Floyd's playing style as far back as Atom Heart Mother. However, due to the altered beat and bassline, it is not directly related to "Breathe", unlike the last part of "Time" (sometimes listed in songbooks as "Breathe (Reprise)"), and "Any Colour You Like" (sometimes nicknamed "Breathe (2nd Reprise)").
When the Dark Side of the Moon suite was performed in 1972 (before the album was released), the song was completely different and went under the title "The Mortality Sequence". Then, it was simply an organ and samples of people speaking about death being played during the performance.
"And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do, I
don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime."
"I never said I was frightened of dying."
"I never said I was frightened of dying."

Remember when you were young,
You shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes,
Like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire
Of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon,
You cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night,
And exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome
With random precision,
Rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!
An interview conducted during their Australian tour in 1971, broadcast as part of a segment on GTK**, the ABC's music show of the period. (ABC = Australian Broadcasting Commission, the state broadcaster). The segment also included some live footage and a clip for "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun". (see here on my channel also)
All contemporary members were present for the interview (from left to right): Nick Mason, Roger Waters, Richard Wright, David Gilmour. They speak of their history to date, their means of composition and collaboration, speak of their current album at that time, "Atom Heart Mother", and the upcoming release of their as-yet unnnamed album (which was to be "Meddle").
From a re-broadcast of the segment on Rage, (late-night music programme on ABC) in January 2008. (Wasn't that very good of them!)

George Roger Waters (Great Bookham, Surrey, 6 de Setembro de 1943) é um músico e compositor britânico de rock, mais conhecido por ter sido o compositor, vocalista, baixista, guitarrista e um dos fundadores do Pink Floyd.
Após outro dos fundadores, Syd Barrett, ter abandonado o grupo devido a doença mental e a abuso de drogas, no fim dos anos 60, Waters definiu a direcção artística da banda, levando os Pink Floyd para o centro das atenções, produzindo uma série de álbuns que continuam entre os mais aclamados pela crítica e dos mais vendidos de todos os tempos.
A relação de Waters com Gilmour foi-se tornando tensa nos finais dos anos 70, à medida que Waters ia exercendo cada vez mais o controle criativo sobre o grupo. A última colaboração Waters/Gilmour, The Final Cut de 1983 foi creditada como sendo um trabalho de Waters, com música tocada pelos Pink Floyd. Waters deixou a banda e o desacordo sobre a intenção de Gilmour continuar a usar o nome dos Pink Floyd levou-os à barra do tribunal. Waters argumentava que tendo a banda sido criada por ele, Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, e Richard Wright, não havia razão para o grupo continuar a se chamar Pink Floyd, devido ao facto de contar apenas com um dos elementos originais, (Wright havia deixado a banda antes da gravação de The Final Cut). Outro dos argumentos de Waters era o facto de ser o autor da maior parte das letras das músicas dos Pink Floyd desde o abandono de Syd Barrett. Mesmo assim, Gilmour ganhou o direito de usar o nome dos Pink Floyd e a maioria das suas músicas, ficando Waters apenas com os direitos do álbum The Wall e de todas as suas músicas.
Roger Waters foi considerado o 22º melhor baixista do Milênio, numa lista divulgada pela revista Guitar, há poucos anos.
Westham team theme song for all the hammers out there
Bubbles with a twist
It's the hammers, the modern version of the suit and tights, players by day, truth by night, watch out for them Newton nights.

So its best to keep the line tight. Robert green or Richard wright, between the post, when not exposed is something quite like. A wall behind Gabbidon, and Anton Ferdinand, why keep rio when uve got a bird in hand. In fact the transfers out of upton park read like a who's who. Lets mention no names, no famous, real dudes. But remember when we were down our fans were screamin brown out. brown out. Be4 magnesson gave him a roundhouse. Brought the argentina duo like Tottenham mark two, tevez to bang goals Javier to mark you, needle of the eye that's something to pass thro, all under the guise of alan pardew, a team full of promise, nothins promised in this league live of ur tomoros never live of ur history. Few have made it throught the years like mullins and DAilly. Lets see wat the future brings for noble and kyle reid back in to the dizzy heights, a football style hats fearlessforever blowing bubbles the fans here are peerless but what a long time foot ball a year is. il bring it back to the present, first hear this

But for real, im beginning to feel, west ham have added steel since they purchased lucas neil, an the pace of bellamy lungberg and boamorte, better know we're movin up the table shortly, bobby Zamora, elegant performer, Mathew ethrington cood whip a ball around a corner,
for richer or for poorer carlton cole has left the chelski, Scott, Lee, craig and Kieran from the nufc. Wats on the menu lets see, rumours of adrianno, big names are floating around like the suprano's or crosses from solano, another Geordie that makes 5 for the sake of the recording, winning is rewarding in all competions, leagues cups we want it all that's ambition, we're all on the same page, team spirits surreal,
in the future noble but for now its luke neil with the captains armband, to lead em down the tunnel.
the gaffers a smartman so we'll stay clear of trouble maybe push for earopean places, comin against al sorts of popular faces, but first the basics, prosper in ur domestic league that's success man that's near nuff exstacy I see the futre an the fans getin excited more than I see a chrismas card sent from sheffilled united.
Let me jimmy walkya through this last verse, let Jonathon spectators have the last word, tony stoke the fires of youth resorts an all the future calum daven-imports, (imports)
Hayden Mull over the future, nigel quash the negative talk that's in the media, heating up the irons, irons irons, soon the flying, east end giants. Im forever blowing bubbles till I run out of air, pretty bubbles forming puddles crystal aan clear, they fly so high I see em above the upper tier, they reach the sky then fade an die start falling like tears, fortunes always hiding but im good at hide an seek, so I keep searching emerging more gotta keep, on , keep strong, keep learning how to keep on the strongest eleven till the games won, every weekends three points to gain son, tell the wags to love the fortune and the fame hun, but at the end of the day its just a game tons of people they play, in the park or the playgrounds, backstreets boards and playstation, but boards dont stay patient. So play ur hardest, giv ur all average wont do. An jus less u forget kno that the magics in you.....
One Of The Best Ballad ever!
Just a beautiful song from pink floyd with a great video..ENJOY!!
Wish You Were Here (Waters, Gilmour)
So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skys from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
Pink Floyd were an English rock band who in the 1960s earned recognition for their psychedelic and space rock music, and in the 1970s, as they evolved, for their progressive rock music. Pink Floyd's work is marked by philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, innovative album cover art, and elaborate live shows. One of rock music's most critically acclaimed and commercially successful acts, the group has sold over 200 million albums worldwide including 74.5 million certified units in the United States. Pink Floyd influenced progressive rock artists of the 1970s including Genesis and Yes

Another brand new video, this time of Syd Barrett's 'Baby Lemonade' from his second and final solo album, 'Barrett'. 'Baby Lemonade' was written and recorded by Syd Barrett in 1970 and is the opening track on 'Barrett'. Dave Gilmour and along with Richard Wright produced the album, as well as performing guitar, bass, organ and piano on the album. The album takes a different direction away from the erratic style of 'The Madcap Laughs', with 'Barrett' adapting a more commercial sound, due to the influence of Gilmour and Wright. While 'Barrett' is a much more tighter and focused album, it still contains elements of Syd's bizarre nature.
The recording took less time to produce than 'The Madcap Laughs', and the final album was released in November 1970. Unfortunately, the album sparked no interest and failed to chart. Between 1971 and 1974, Syd Barrett attempted several music projects, including a band in 1972 called 'Stars'. The band was short-lived after only three live performances. In 1974, Syd Barrett recorded for the last time, recording only a few instrumentals before walking away from music forever.
Most of the images used in this video were photographed by Mick Rock in 1970.
