Paintbox for sure. Time. Us And Them. Echoes. There are lots. I love his singing voice and keyboards. I can pick him out from the rest of them, no problem.

White Summer, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.

So if it's only like the best song ever, what song is it that Wearing The Inside Out is like? And how can a song try to be calm?

It's a well known fact that Richard Wright wrote the score for Miracle on 42th St.
Anyone know any other films he has written music for?

wouldn´t it be awfully boring if we only say "nice" things here? WtIO actually was awful live.

As far as magic moments are concerned, it is hard to get past "Shine On", "Echoes" and "Great Gig", but I really liked his performance of "Breakthrough" at Gilmour's Meltdown gig.

The Gdansk "Echoes" has some pretty awesome Hammond work from Rick. He really had got his chops back after all those years.

Whoa! a reverse smiley! I'm feeling dizzy.

Yes, Wearing The Inside Out and overall all of Division Bell is great music to fall asleep. That was one of my biggest conclusions after hearing that album for the first few times and trying come with positive things about it. Sometimes I fall asleep with the low burning start up of Cluster One's first 5 minutes, then WDYWFM wakes me up and then I pleasently fall asleep again with Poles Apart, specially when the mid-section carousel break comes in, and from that track till Take It Back is always a good nap with the deepest sleep happening while Wearing The Insite Out is palying :smt015

Some of my favourite moments with special input by Wright are in no particular order: Any Colour You Like (live and in the studio), Dogs' mid-break, all of SOYCD (live) but specially parts VI-IX , Pigs' solo (live), The Happiest Days of Our Lives (live), Mudmen, all of The Man and The Journey.

1. A Saucerful of Secrets ['Celestial Voices' end bit]
2. Mudmen
3. Echoes [studio]
4. Summer 68
5. start of Sheep.

And 'Wet Dream' is very much under-rated!

Definitely "Us and Them," which is actually one of my all-time favorite songs.
