    Wow... that's the problem with videos uploaded that they play here. This version was sped up so everything is 1/2 step higher. It's Pick Floyd sung by a choir of boys... ugh.

    I remember buying this album and could not wait to here it all the way home on the bus. and being disappointed that, the logo of the two robot hands were just the cellophane wrapping on the cover,

    I was trying to do work and I couldn't because this song wouldn't let me stop thinking about Syd Barrett.

    @Indierock93 People's patience won't reach that far. "Too long, I won't listen."

    This is my favourite Pink Floyd song. This song a made it to my "Space Songs" playlist.. a playlist that is perfect for those starry nights. But even with all those Bowie and Elton John songs on the list, nothing compares to the feeling SoYcD gives me when I look up to Orien, or the Pleiades.. it just has such an amazing vibe to it.. an erie feeling? I really don't know. Next time you take a walk by yourself at night, play it. It's a totally different experience.

    Here, impeccable style and philosophical vision. For this work is characterized by a lot of carefully developed parts.
