I cannot believe people are actually voting for Comfortably Numb, Time and Wish You Were Here. They are three of the Pink Floyd songs that would probably get radio airplay even without this. I'd much rather hear something that they would never even contemplate broadcasting than the obvious choices.

Well perhaps the playlist is more likely to get played if some of the more commercial stuff is on there!!

I suppose so. I wouldn't listen to it anyway. The other bands aren't that good and I have all of the Pink Floyd songs!

rb11060 and hookeve, you did use the poll at the top of this page to vote and not just posted your list? You select your 6 favourites on this list, and your favourite 6 from the OTHER list and submit those so your vote is counted! 8)

My common sense pointing out: It must be Comfortably Numb or Echoes
But dept of my heart says: Another Brick In The Wall, part 2.
So, I vote for Another Brick In The Wall, part 2 :smt035

I'm a bit surprised we didn't get "See Emily Play" nominated!

A really great example from the Syd era (I think anyway :lol: )
