Big Pink Floyd Survey – Part 4 – Favourite Songs and Fan Self-Ratings

When it came to choosing your favourite Pink Floyd song when completing the survey 6 months ago, I bet some of your experienced real trouble just narrowing it down to one favourite.  Their best song.  Some of you may have been like me though and just knew which it was.  Mine is the glorious Echoes and just so happens to be their best according to the survey.

I was not lucky enough to watch it being performed live by the whole Pink Floyd but I was fortunate enough to watch it being performed by David Gilmour, Richard Wright and the rest of David’s On an Island touring band back in 2006 at Manchester Bridgewater Hall.  Words cannot describe!

Anyway, you voted for your favourite Pink Floyd songs and here they are…

Fan “Self-Rating”: How Much of a Fan are you?

I included this question in the survey as I thought it would be a good thing to group fans by in order to look at the favourite albums of casual fans and hardcode fans separately.  I had hoped to see what different groups of people like.

As you can see below, everybody believes they are hardcore fan.  Well, I challenge some of them on that as some voted that the David Gilmour led era of Pink Floyd was better than the Roger Waters “classic years”!  Shame on them!  😉

Anyway, the average fan gave them self a rating of 9.3/10 for how much of a fan they are!  Not too useful but there you go.  Pink Floyd fans are certainly dedicated.
