    Amazing, as Steve Jobs would have said.

    It's truly a remarkable cover. It tears me to pieces

    I didn't think it possible to like a cover of this song so much.

    This is EXACTLY what a cover of a song should be!!! Mark captured the melody, lyrics & feel of the original and made it distinctly Sparklehorse. I'm exceptionally picky about music, and Pink Floyd is my favorite band. Do a cover of one of their songs & I'll probably tear it apart. However, this is subtle, beautiful, and with the suicide of Mark Linkhous, poignant.

    Anyone knows what is the lyric at the end? it starts at 5:04, the only part I can make out of it is "Es por el bien de ambos" in spanish, the rest is too mumbly :(

    http://www.rockdelux.es/secciones/p/sparklehorse-dead-man-walking.html?sms_ss=twitter&at_xt=4d736b64ffb91dcc,0 ... Su versión de “Wish You Were Here” (Pink Floyd), incluida en la compilación que conmemora el centenario de EMI –“Come Again”, 1997–, ha sido acreditada como Sparklehorse Featuring Thom Yorke. Contra su voluntad, naturalmente. “Es uno de mis clásicos favoritos. Quería que Thom la cantara, pero su agenda estaba tan apretada que fuimos posponiendo la sesión. Un A&R se enteró y le hizo grabar en un sistema que no acababa de concordar con el mío. El caso es que decidí utilizar sólo un trocito de la voz, y ahora imagino a miles de ‘fans’ de Radiohead invirtiendo en algo que, seguro, les va a decepcionar. Ya es agua pasada. En realidad, dispongo de un contrato muy modesto y la única responsabilidad que tengo que asumir respecto a mi segundo trabajo es entregarlo”.

    The original was perfect - this doesn't add anything. The melodies have been muted out.
