  • My favourite song ever. [2] It always remembers me when I was 4; my mom was often playing The Division Bell while ironing on sunny saturday afternoons. When it came to High Hopes, I used to increase the volume to its maximum at the end of the song when the bells fade out... and forgot sometimes to set it back to a 'normal' volume. Huge noise explosion and everyone screaming at the next play, lol. But more than a little anecdote, this song has always been giving me eargasms whenever I listen to it. By far the best song ever recorded (for me)!!! <3
