What would you include on a DG compilation?

Post by mastaflatch »

With the anticipation of Gilmour's new album, I revisited his solo output in the last few days and, while each album has big variations in terms of songwriting/inspiration quality, they're also brimming with great nuggets.

What would you put on a Best of David Gilmour?

I did think about my favorites and here goes (by the way, I chose not to include live renditions of Floyd material and instead focus on his solo work since he's got more than enough great songs to fill a killer album on his own):

Murder, Near the End, I Can't Breathe Anymore, There's No Way Out of Here, All Lovers Are Deranged, On An Island, Smile, Je Crois Entendre Encore, Castelorizon, Rattle That Lock, Then I Close My Eyes, Mihalis (in no purposeful order).

I would include at least some of his Barrett covers.
Especially 'Dark Globe', of the bonus section of the DVD 'Remember That Night' (2007).

I wish Gilmour would do more Barrett covers.
But that's another topic. :)
