I just could not watch the whole video...I haven't actually heard that song since the 80's, and can't quite believe I actually liked it back then...man, I must have been desperate for something worth listening to in that era.

I gave it a 3 simply because it is David Gilmour. Really like Near The End....

Could only watch part of the video.....It was very painful. <.8.>

i remember blue light as an instrumental extended version but i have never been able to find it around so that version must be very rare now.

Saw two or three copies of the 12" single that version is from at a local store...real cheap.

I must be one of the few who actually likes Blue Light. I even sat through the whole video twice in the last month!

The video is hilarious, as is David talking at the end of it.

"I can get down with the best of them" :lol:

So, is "About Face" a play on words about saving face and showing Gilmour's face...or something?

About Face is a very important album in the history of The Genius and his band, Pink Floyd.

When this crap album failed miserably because it sucked, imo, and because nobody knew who this Gilmour guy was...since Floyd kept their faces and names obscurely hidden and avoided all publicity, Gilmour knew his career (which consisted of playing great guitar work for a very creative guy) was basically over.

Gilmour didnt want to end his career but having no creative talent, only the ability to play guitar better than just about anybody, he was in a bind.

So, The Devil whispered in his ear, "Hey dude, this album sucks cause you have no creative writing talent, which is why you didnt write any of the songs from Pink Floyd. You are toast dude. Unless you listen to me."

And Gilmour said:

"I'm all ears"

And Satan said:

"Get that worthless drummer and call yourself Pink floyd, then no matter how crappy the songs are, you can sell a few million and, more importantly, you can go touring and sing Roger's songs and make lots of money"

And Gilmour, having no conscience, or writing ability said:

"Yeah, but who is going to write the songs. I mean, look Satan, did you see the Blue Light video?"

And Satan said:

"Tell Ezrin you will give him a boat ride. Go hire Jon Carin, bring back Rick to make it look better, and a few hundred people and you guys can write 10 songs that will suck but at least the nuts will think its kinda pink floydish. And then you can go on tour and sing Brick in the Wall and stuff."

And Gilmour sold his soul. Since he is an athiest, he thinks its cool but he is hoping there is no hell as he sold his soul and The Devil always comes to get what is coming to him.

In my opinion, of course. I could be wrong. :) :-;

With all your knowledge should definitely write a book about Pink Floyd, and call your self Christopher Sandford while you are at it.

This is nothing but inspiring troll behaviour.
