* "Hey You" and the moments Pink realizes [[OhCrap he has spent his whole life making a mistake]] and tries to reconnect to humanity, even though he knows his efforts are doomed to failure.

Although written by Waters, it's another showcase for Gilmour, who plays the haunting riff at the beginning, the great guitar solo in the middle, and even the memorable fretless bass part throughout.

* "Another Brick in the Wall (Part II)" will always kick major ass. ALWAYS. At exactly the 2:49 mark is one the most amazing note bends in musical history. Just that 5 seconds there is one the finest moments in music. It's even more insanely awesome when [[https://soundcloud.com/mixessss21/pink-floyd-vs-bee-gees-stayin mashed up excellently with the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive"]]. And while not everyone is a huge fan of the Music/{{Korn}} version, it speaks to the staying power of this song when they play it live and you hear people who weren't even ''alive'' when the album came out singing along to "HEY! TEACHER! LEAVE THOSE KIDS ALONE!" with every fiber of their being.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jMlFXouPk8 "High Hopes"]] ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxdK_2EgpDs music video]]) is mesmerisingly beautiful, and "Poles Apart" and "Coming Back to Life" are awesome too. There's so much emotion in some of these songs that it hurts, and this album should never be overlooked. "High Hopes" might also count as a TearJerker because it seems like the band's farewell to their loyal audience. On the ''Echoes'' compilation, though, it's cleverly segued into Syd Barrett's "Bike" (by cutting from the closing church bell to a bicycle bell) so that they form a pair of reverse {{bookends}} to the band's career.

* The whole album is 42 minutes of prime space rock/psychedelia, including "Astronomy Domine", "Lucifer Sam", "Take Up Thy Stethoscope And Walk", "Interstellar Overdrive", and "Bike", as well as the singles, "Arnold Layne" and "See Emily Play", that were spawned during this period.

* ''A Momentary Lapse of Reason'' gets a lot of flak, but it has its share of highlights. They include the aforementioned [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tl0gab3Ufc "Learning To Fly"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UCRa9wRFlg "Yet Another Movie"]][[SiameseTwinSongs /]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fT0NEhl5-Q "Round And Around"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ef7_H4VGuIw "Terminal Frost"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijUCwQru9is "Sorrow"]]. Especially the section of "Learning To Fly" from "Above to the planet on a wing and a prayer..." to the song's end.

* While the album certainly isn't one of their more well-regarded musically, it does have its highlights, including [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MU2XnEba_LI "The Gunner's Dream"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LqTGiIr-1o "The Fletcher Memorial Home"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2e-yO6_FbtI "The Final Cut"]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkNOky3orsM "Not Now John"]]. "Not Now John" can also be a contender for not only being one of Floyd's heaviest songs, but infamously the one with the most (badass) profanity.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyL2vAUVOM0 "Time"]]. The intro alone is awesome. 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.

* The entire live half 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.

sublime.[[note]] And it could have been even more awesome; the band felt that their performances at Mothers Club in Birmingham were superior to those at the Manchester College of Commerce, but their recording equipment malfunctioned at the Mothers gig, so the majority of tracks on the album - "Astronomy Domine", "Careful with that Axe, Eugene", and the first two sections of "A Saucerful of Secrets" - are taken from the Manchester concert.[[/note]]

* Sitting down and listening to a Pink Floyd album from start to finish almost always counts as Awesome Music. ''Music/WishYouWereHere'', ''Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon'', and ''Music/{{Meddle}}'' are particularly well put together. ''Music/TheWall'' is awesome in its own way too, as are ''Music/{{Animals}}'', ''Music/ThePiperAtTheGatesOfDawn'' and ''Music/ASaucerfulOfSecrets''. Some may find ''Music/TheFinalCut'' fits into this category.
