* "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 fiver of their being.

* 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.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyL2vAUVOM0 "Time"]]. 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.

Music/SydBarrett, but especially the guitar solo from Part VI.

[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlF8APEkh-E set to a simulation of an asteroid impact.]] There is no Pink Floyd song like it, thanks to all of Clare Torry's energy and passion pouring into the vocals (one of two guest performances in the discography) and Nick Mason's most brilliant yet overlooked drum playing.

If you had to narrow Pink Floyd's awesome output down to one album, it'd be ''The Dark Side of the Moon'', their most critically acclaimed and commercially successful work. It was on the Billboard Top 200 for '''''14 years''''' and would have re-entered the chart again had Billboard not changed the rules to prevent that (instead, it remains a mainstay of their "Catalog" chart). When they changed their rules in 2009 to allow catalog albums and re-entries into the Billboard Top 200, ''The Dark Side of the Moon'' re-entered the chart a few weeks later and has popped in here and there ever since.

It was on the Billboard Top 200 for ''fifteen years'' and would have re-entered the chart again had Billboard not changed the rules to prevent that (instead, it remains a mainstay of their "Catalog" chart).

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4ZlWEQ17ns "Outside the Wall"]], particularly [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-hxpnnNREQ the movie version]], is a haunting reflection of the events that transpired throughout the story prior. Additionally, it serves as a reassuring acceptance that we all have our own social difficulties and barriers, and that while not all of us can overcome them, we can at least reconcile with them.
