Hey You (4:54)

Cover of The Wall (disc 2)

From The Wall (disc 2) and 55 other releases

This is Roger Waters’ ode to alienation.

The opening to the second half of “The Wall” sees the narrator trying to connect with the audience, trying to make some kind of contact with any human being. But the isolation he feels from his audience is too great, and the worms (the metaphorical representations of his evil thoughts) begin to eat into his mind.

This song is notable for its David Gilmour fretless bass solos which occur before the first and third verses.

Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles

    As one of The Wall’s many tracks revolving around a disaffected musician named Pink, “Hey You” follows the character’s efforts to be reconnected to society. Unfortunately, the wall of the album’s title prevents his success. Comprising vocals by both Gilmour and Waters, the four-and-a-half minute track is one of the album’s highlights and captures Pink’s struggle with its poignant and desperate atmosphere. -- watchmojo
