The Top Ten


Never, ever, in my life I have seen, heard or felt someone putting so much effort and hard work into something as much as on this song. Seriously - it's in a league of it's own. Definitely up there with Stairway To Heaven & Bohemian Rhapsody - if not higher. A real example of what teamwork can really do, which gives in a very little edge over Comfortably Numb.

Comfortably Numb
2Comfortably Numb

The instruments go together well through the whole song. And then it comes - a 16 ft giant, magical, redemption - THE solo, which happens to be the best in Rock history. Period.

A wonderful masterpiece. The first part is sheer awesomeness.

4Lost For Words

Awesome acoustic work if there ever was one and the lyrics are sung really good, and this song isn't even on the list! Blasphemy!

Wish You Were Here
5Wish You Were Here

One of the best acoustic works in music history with lyrics that can't get any better.

Great, relaxing vibe with poetic vocals. Keyboard also produces nice melody.

Who? Me?

Anyway, pretty awesome in general, and the turning point of The Wall.

Mine and friends' anthem. Yes, I hate school (that) much. On the second view - nice, dancing feeling to it, and great solo in the end.

Us and Them

Rick was brilliant. He wrote many songs with passion and feeling - and this is one of his best.

A bit too long. Some parts are awesome, some drag a bit. Anyway, best song from the pre-Dark Side era.
