Pink Floyd

Arnold Layne (2:57)

The Pink Floyd's first single, a manic song about a convicted crossdresser. Reached #20 in the UK, put the Pink Floyd on the map.

The first manifestation of Barrett's songwriting talents was a bizarre little classic called 'Arnold Layne'. A sinister piece of vaguely commercial fare, it dealt with the twilight wanderings of a transvestite/pervert figure and is both whimsical and singularly creepy.

  • One of the greatest songs of ALL TIMES!
  • Great
  • Arnold Lane, See Emily Play, and The Bicycle Song, all played there part in what made Pink Floyd great, so I don't know what your all arguing about, with out one you would never have had the other.
  • Currently using the clip from this song as my avatar, it's just too funny xD
  • I like Syd era. If you don't like "travel" with his music, just don't listen to it. People prefer his music as you prefer overrated PF.
  • great Syd Barrett song.
  • I like the Syd Barrett stuff, Roger Waters stuff, David Gilmour stuff. Hell, I like it all, but what do I know? LOL
  • psychedelic pop at its finest
  • pink floyd serious business
  • >Pink Floyd from Dark side onwards is progressive music ahead of its time. - lol seriously?
