I grew up in the late 60's/early 70's. When the 50's revival hit in the early 70's, I checked out, having heard that before and not liking it -- Orange County had KWIZ, all 50's/early-60's (as if there were any difference), so KRLA, AKA "Karla", was our beloved darling, playing modern rock (and one late night my first exposure to "Alice's Restaurant") as well as "The Credibility Gap", was referred to as "Radio Free Orange County". A friend turned me on to then-Walter (now Wendy) Carlos' Switched-on Bach and it was all "classical" for the next three decades (actually, classical is just a few decades, Haydn to early Beethovan, out of what "classical" stations offer) and there I remained until Lindy circa 2004, whereupon I learned of swing music, 1930's to 1940's -- it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing!

I once heard a "classical" radio station announcer describe the processional march from Ada that he was about to play as "when the end of the world comes, I can only hope that the music will be half this good!" And when I married my ex, this one piece from Hndel's Water Music was running through my head. In the four centuries of music to pick from, there are far too many candidates to pick from.

And yet, as a guilty pleasure, there is one song. The words really fail it, ... and yet the chorus does not fail to send a chill down the spine:

Let's do the Time Warp again!

Of course, since it's on vinyl, it's been nearly four decades since I've heard the drum solo from In a Gadda-la-Vida. Every year for a couple/few years, the Smothers Brothers would show a film that displayed images from the previous year set to that drum solo.

he played the guitar
he drove for nothing else
in a world that is going to fast
this seems wrong

he lived slowly
and had a good time
those caught in this hurry
he teased with his song

here my voice
who is of sound mind
tik tak time goes by
and overtakes us all

he played the guitar
was afraid of no one
and like he was shaving mad mens heads (exspression for telling people what to do)
he salted our minds (same meaning different expression)

he lived untill his death
like we all will
and now the echo sounds
as he sings with angels

here my voice
who is of sound mind
tik tak time goes by
and overtakes us all

here my voice
who is of sound mind
tik tak time goes by
and overtakes us all

Lol its hard to translate lyrics and you have to here this song at a concert but it still not such a bad quality on you tube.

My favorite version of "High Hopes".

Great song - following the show, last time I heard it live, Rick actually came up and introduced himself to me Still the highlight of all my gig-going days. RIP, Richard - we miss you.

Yes RIP Richard,

I never got to see a Floyd or DG show while Rick was alive, seen Roger waters back when he done RADIO K.A.O.S., many moons ago. I always liked The Final Cut, it was more of a Waters album than most, some great music. Two Suns is a rather disturbing tune, The Gunners Dream just makes me teary eyed, lots of emotion in that whole album. Much of it is songs that were not included in The Wall album but were in the movie, as I am sure you already knew of course. Here is Gunners Dream/Final Cut.

Wow, you saw KAOS? That beats me. My earliest was the Momentary Lapse tour, followed shortly by Roger doing the Wall in Berlin. Final Cut is excellent - very underated. But probably my favourite Roger is Amused to Death - here's a track from that album that makes me cry:

That's great high quality music, Frako, whether translated or not. I enjoyed it very much. I just got a cerise radio ready to connect. Perhaps I can get some more of that sort of thing.
