Fridays Rock! We all know this to be true. This week, I'm feeling the need to approach it from a slightly altered state of mind. Since I can't employ, ahem, chemical aids at work, I'll have to do it musically.
I was late to the Pink Floyd party, having gone straight from Top 40s pop into the whole disco thing. Finally, in the mid 80s I started coming to and listening to stuff in more rock-ish vein.
I remember hearing this one for the first time. It was in the mid eighties, although I can't remember the exact year. I was in the car, probably driving to work, and it completely blew me away. I was feeling pretty numb at that point in my life (and not in a good way) so it really struck home.
So here you go. Kick your feet up, grab your mood-altering substance of choice, and enjoy the tasty extended guitar solo at the end.
That's some good shit.
