  • underrated song.
  • What's going on with the guitar solo on the album version of this song? It's like he's just completely lost and/or drunk.

  • Keeps me in depressive mood.
  • Pinkfloyd reminds me in 1980 when it was the most successful '' Another brick in the wall '' and I left the sound of my car on high
  • 'Balls deep' quality :-)
  • This song must be in my top 5 favorite Pink Floyd' songs. Awesome solos and lyrics! Can't stop listening!!
  • pure magic [3]
  • Guitar masturbation
  • Esta canción lo es todo, TODO.
  • Just magic, amazing song!
