* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KMpZaEF6g0 "Echoes"]]. With ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''. You '''cannot''' get more awesome than that. As for the song itself... the reprise and release, the band jam with the two guitar solos in a row, the whale song. Just unbelievable. Hell, even the intro. Just hearing the empty, ethereal ''ping...ping...'' leading into the main theme, you know you're in for something truly epic. The fact that Pink Floyd created such an atmosphere with a single repeated note is proof of their greatness. (Especially Wright's greatness, as he came up with the intro. He wasn't as visible as Waters or Gilmour, but his contributions were nonetheless vital.)
** After the eerie whale song section in "Echoes", the band slowly builds a crescendo over Rick Wright's organ solo until the song bursts into what can only be described as a musical orgasm.

The contrast between the more aggressive sections, sung by Gilmour, and the more mellow and melancholic moments, sung by Wright, is breathtaking, particularly so at "Breathe Reprise". It should go without saying that this is one of Gilmour's best guitar solos.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7EpSirtf_E "Comfortably Numb"]] is a huge fan favorite and gains more radio play than any other Pink Floyd song these days, for a reason. Especially the live version from ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWnapx502uQ Pulse]]''. The ending guitar solo almost hurts, and the light show isn't exactly a detractor.

* "If" is an important track as well, as it is similar to "Brain Damage" from ''Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon''.
* "Summer '68" is a major stand-out from the album. Influenced by Music/TheBeachBoys, it's generally considered to be one of the stronger compositions by Richard Wright.
* "Fat Old Sun" shows that even Pink Floyd can show their calmer side every once in a while.

* The entire live half of ''Ummagumma'' is an absolutely fantastic journey into what Pink Floyd shows were like in their psychedelic years (particularly for those too young to have actually experienced it [[{{Pun}} in the flesh]]). All four songs are superbly done, but "A Saucerful of Secrets" in particular is utterly sublime.
