I thought the eclipse was cool, even through the pinhole and the music.....sorry if either offended you
Couldn't be more apropos.  Thanks, Bill!

Don't be so hard on yourself.

I just punched a hole in a piece of paper and shined it on a white piece of wood on the floor at work. I just impressed the crap out of a bunch of young folks. I am a Sun God !

Get a good view of the Dark Side of the Moon?  I hear it's all dark... really.

Perfect song for this afternoon… I hope the playlist for the 8th of April in 2024 has this ready as well. {#Cheers}
LOVE this version, haven't heard it in a long time on RP.....always a deep breath moment.  Needless to say timely given the Eclipse just occurred in Chicago about 90 minutes ago!

TOTALLY agree with this comment.  Roger's lyrics are/were absolutely stunning for a 20 something.  I was 20 at the time.

I was 17 when this was released and you listen to Time written by a 20 something and you say WTF?

 


What happens when a psychedelic band takes itself too seriously.

True!
Haven't heard any of these versions on RP for ages....Glad Bill dusted this off!  Looking forward to seeing Roger Waters this summer - you never know when the "last time" will be for these living legends.

So feeling this comment.
 
I think Bill's gone down to the shops or he's having another quick one in the bar!!!
Yes, Roger Waters makes the difference

How about 10 to an exponent for this one?  10 squared would fit it nicely into the scheme of things!

I don't have this album.  Off to Amazon's wish list! 

Thanks Bill!

  Wow, that's exactly how I feel!


Never got into PF, and the PSD button seems to be disabled (for this song only).  Guess that's how the cookie crumbles... :/

You'd think these dopey stoners could show a little empathy rather than referring to someone as a lunatic and pumping in stupid giggles, muzak saxophone and a lame chorus
Pink Floyd sucks! 
If it wasn't for the sax player not sticking to the script, it would have been pretty close to the original. Don't know what it is about sax players... lol!

Yesssss! Be nice if this were in the music mix and NOT PSD

Good one, Bill! I'm in Europe so missing out on the eclipse, but totally feeling the vibe thanks to this. Thanks   {#Good-vibes}
Perfect music for watching the eclipse, here in S Fla! Thanx Bill & Rebecca.
Can you imagine what your life would have been like without DSOTM?
Thank you, PSD fairy!

It was, how shall I say, an introspective period.  

 

I strongly suspect that more people had more sex to this song, this album than any other in the period.  Just a hunch.  

 
That's why there are so many people with hunches walking around.

Call it what you want, its still the blues to me.

Which is why I love it so much.

Very nice - but I prefer the studio version, perhaps because it is forever etched into my brain. When I listen to the live version, all I hear are the many ways it is NOT what I will forever love. DSOTM: Number 1 on my list of "desert island discs" - a classic study and commentary on "the human condition", something I may need reminding of while I contemplate whether or not to eschew the island life.
Roger Waters is playing bass on this. Too bad it ended so ugly.
