Best Pink Floyd Songs

41Interstellar Overdrive

I never really thought much of the Syd Barrett era. I just think it isn't as good as the Waters albums (Dark Side, The Wall, Wish You Were Here etc.). This song, in my opinion is the best song from that era. It starts off with an awesome guitar intro, then falls into psychedelic chaos as the song progresses. This song made me appreciate Piper At the Gates of Dawn a lot more than I did at the time.

This is SO much better than Comfortably Numb or Another Brick In The Wall, in my opinion. And the live version is even better!

I added this song onto the list a while ago, I thought it'd be pretty low. I'm glad that it's in the top 20. - MontyPython

Come on, this is such a beautiful song. It's relaxing, soft and is my personal favorite. It's an early Pink Floyd song, so it's different, but it's a good different. You need to hear this one.

This is definitely Floyd's most underrated. Just gorgeous. I have a thing for Julia's. - PetSounds

43The Final Cut

One of the best... This song has to be only in the top 10... And if you have never heard it then stop listening to Pink Floyd please you are missing the best...

This is certainly THE most under-rated and one of the best songs of Pink Floyd. It deserves to be higher up in the list!

No other song can match the lyrics of final cut.. Simply amazing.

45? -_-..This is the best song ever!

44What Do You Want From Me

This song is number 1. Comfortably numb and hey you are great song but is song in very under rated. The best most underrated Pink Floyd song ever. It is such a shame that it doesn't get much recognition. It truly is a masterpiece.

Such an amazing combination of vocals and guitar. Great beginning to the division bell (after Cluster One), which is an AMAZING album overall.

Superb guitar served up with a hypnotic drum beat and a synth sound that could be compared to songs like 'Money'

45Any Colour You Like

AbsolutelTy. Brilliant! It is so down the list... That is shameful to say the least.. Guys please recognise true music... I always me playing this to... A full packed arena... Awesome...

Amazing instrumental. Just blows your mind and gets you high!

The one thing I like about dark side of the moon aside from the epic lyrics on each song, are these instrumental songs, like this one. - matty925

This is one of the best instrumental rock songs ever. It is absolutely brilliant and can really take one on a trip - I just wish it was longer. Should be rated in the top 10.

46Another Brick In the Wall, Pt. 3

Maybe it can be one of my best Pink Floyd songs but I don't mean this song as my number one favorite song, it can possibly be an underrated song according to the Pink Floyd fans.

I'm not a fan of this one. Happiest Days of Our Lives should be up where this one is.

How this song ain't on top 10?
It's a disrespect to Pink Floyd. I mean guys, if y'all love Pink Floyd, this song would've be on top 10.

Seriously why not in Top Ten :x No doubt the ones above are good too but this song is just class apart

This, A New Machine, and One Slip. Three underrated Pink Floyd Songs.

Amazing work of art.

48Fearless

A Very underrated song but one of their finest work. This should be at least at 12 or 13. One of my favourite song.

This has been my go-to song whenever I need courage and fortitude over the past twenty years. I walked "down the aisle" to this when I was married. This may not be their greatest in every way, but it deserves much credit for capturing a moment, a mood; that essence of calm and acceptance.

This is an amazing song and so much better than any song on Momentary Lapse of Reason, the Division Bell, the Final Cut, and the Wall.

This is a good one

Far the best song of all time by the Pink Floyd in my opinion. The lyrics and music are both extremely fantastic. The coda with that organ solo is one of Rick's finest work. - gabegyebnar

The organ solo at the end is mesmerizing - RalphSaad

50Goodbye Blue Sky

Not even in the top 10? We have to fix that! Please get this into at least the top 20, it is one of the best in like ever! It should be right there with another brick in the wall, comfortably numb, time, money, you name it!

Definitely agree with that statement. Should really be in the top 10, it's a short song but reminds me of tunes like comfortably numb and hey you.

Makes you feel so much unconventional emotions and intensity : passing from fear to joy to fear to joy... Short but we wouldn't need more.

This should be in the top 25. - Powerfultekin

This song, with its great lyrics should be in the top 5! Maybe some of the younger voters should listen to it, along with some of their earlier work, then they will see that floyd was great long before Dark Side came along!

62?
Vote for this, it's a great Pink Floyd song, one of my top 10 favorites!

This song should definitely be in the top 10, it is one of my favorite floyd songs

One of the best song

52Childhood's End

Obscured by clouds was the most underrated album of Pink Floyd. It is my fourth favourite album tied with The Wall after Wish You Were Here, Dark side of the moon and Meddle. This song is also one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs, from the poignant lyrics about ones youthful life (done again in high hopes by David), to the energetic opening chords and pristine solo. Certainly better than Another brick in the wall or anything on The final cut.

Their most underrated song... Took me a while to realize it's worth. To me it was the first song that sounded like the Pink Floyd that was to come...

This song deserves a much better ranking. Such a great song that really shows what Pink Floyd is.

SUPER underrated.

53In the Flesh

First its calm, but then with its strong beginning and its lyrics males you realize this is no normal music. This is the most epic type of music ever created. Besides it's so good it is repeated twice in The Wall. Just plain awesome

54Sorrow

The guitar part of this song takes the heart out of me and pounds it more than a thousand times... Though I am a fan of heavy metal but no other riff has this sort of psychedelic effect on me as this song does... Awesome lyrics and vocals... Sad to see this so down the list! :(

The guitar is amazing.. The song has so much depth.. Lyrics transcend all the boundaries... Sad to see this song so down the list

One of the best Floyd song ever. Don't know what is wrong with people if they disagree with that. The start is so amazing.

How is this so low on the list? - patrickfloyd

55Poles Apart

Great soothing song similar to 'coming back to the life'... If that song is so high onthe list. This should there too.. Great voice of gilmour

I must with in top 15. How on earth a master piece like this is on 51. Please vote up.

Poles Apart is a song written by Gilmore about Syd Barret and Waters. Wonderful and meaningful lyrics. It describes the war of ego between Waters and Barret.

Great song guys... I think many floyd fans also may not have heard it... It so easily rivals '"coming back to the life".. Equally soothing music and great vocals from gilmour

Very very very underrated song, just listen to it please.

Wow I suppose people just haven't heard it.

It certainly deserves a better rank

Amazing guitar solo, definitely listen to this.

57Careful with that Axe Eugene

By far the greatest Pink Floyd song ever!

Nothing beats this extended psychedelic jam, where else could you hear Roger in such fine form vocally?!

The guitar playing is wonderful. - BaldSpoon

Great lives versions of this song. The screaming is terrifying.

58The Embryo

Frankly I'm surprised that someone even entered this masterpiece into this website. It's one of those songs that you can't find on any albums by Pink Floyd because they only did it live. Anyone who has heard this song though knows that it is 10 minutes of pure early Gilmour era floydian psychedelic spiciness. A shame it was never studio recorded.

Shame the studio version sucked. This was awesome at concerts. - Nickelstickman

59Summer '68

This is in my opinion the most underrated Floyd Song!

The most underrated song by Wright. A masterpiece, it must be in the top 20.

Extremely underrated, a true masterpiece

60Fat Old Sun

This song, written and played solely by David Gilmour, is extremely soothing, yet powerful. The transition to the guitar solo at the end is especially beautiful. Not only is it the most underrated Pink Floyd song, but I honestly think it's their best (well, David Gilmour's best).

This is the best song on the atom hart mother album with great lyrics and a awesome guitar solo

This song is one of the best on Atom Heart Mother and deserves to be higher.

Simply Amazing!
