The Great Gig In The Sky

Lyrics

"And I am not frightened of dying any time will do
I don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it you've gotta go sometime."
"If you can hear this whispering you are dying."

Saw them do this live in Pittsburgh.C l a r e in a blue floor length gown,bathed in a blue light, Richard Wright at the piano, bathed in a white light. In was, at that time, a life changing moment for a 18 year old kid.... I will never forget that moment! Also, the drugs!!!

Why do they have 'if you hear this whispering you are dying' and 'I never said I was frightened of dying' as if both are said in the song? It's either one or the other.
Still, this is one of my favourites off of this album. :P

Pink Floyd is the most amazing and remarkable bands that has ever existed. David Gilmour is absolutely a prodigy and can be placed in the highest level of music genius. His ability ranks with that of Mozart. Only in generations to come will the full scope of his brilliance and gift truely be regonized. I was asked if I had choice to talk to one person and only one person who would it be? Without any hesitation my answer was David Gilmour.

Annie Lennox might take a stab at this one, you could tell she still has the pipes to do it from the Beatles show the other day.
