Id Give It To You If I Could, But I Borrowed It.
Awesome

Need historical and cultural and musical depth to appreciate this song by early Floyd. got depth? Didn't think so.

Anyone else confused why the best Barrett era song is the last one?

Also the connection to the original discovery of LSD is unreal - GreenRyan

42 Childhood'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.

This is one of their best. Extremely underrated

43 Fat 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!

44 Julia Dream

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

Not top 1, but not even 41! )O(

I felt sad that I am the only person who write comment for this amazing song. Deserves top 10!

45 The 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!

An underrated song. It should have been in the top 5. time, echoes, dogs, the final cut, sorrow, shine on you crazy diamond

I Honestly don't understand why the hell is it so low.

46 Is There Anybody Out There?

What better than a hypnotic acoustic guitar instrumental in the middle of the chaos of The Wall

Look up the looped version of the guitar solo on YouTube! Amazingly relaxing.

This song is truly beautiful

47 What 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'

48 When the Tigers Broke Free

Can't believe this is the last song in the list. It is such a beautiful song. And extremely touching lyrics, I nearly cry in less than 3 minutes of song when I listen to it.

How is this so far back. This song is about the day Roger Water's father died. It's filled with emotion and rage. Not to mention the entire melody and orchestration is sublime.

#1. Pink Floyd's best song, but the song did NOT appear on The Final Cut, and I suspect the confusion about the release has held it back substantially in the ranking.

Really, really good. I can't believe it's number 70. It should be top 10 at least

49 Careful 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.

50 Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 1

The bass at the end along with the synthesizers is one of Pink Floyd's signature infinite tones, (comfortably numb, welcome to the machine, hey you, etc. )

This song is what I will always remember Pink Floyd for... I don't know how it is near the bottom of the list

I'd love it's melodious guitar riff and makes me obsessed of it and then it wasn't boring to listen to it though it has only a brief lyrics. Guys please vote to climb this song to #10.

This is one of their songs that gets instantly recognised, but at the time of this comment, its #55. what

51 If

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

52 Cymbaline

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

This should be at least above 30

The organ solo at the end is mesmerizing - RalphSaad

53 Take It Back

This is probably best song from division bell... please vote for this at least top 25

Come on... This should be at least top 20 or so

54 Not Now John

Let me be honest, picking your favourite Floyd song is nearly impossible. So I've picked this one, not because it's my favourite (although it's in my top ten), but because it's the first Floyd song I ever heard. Whenever I was driving in my dad's car, we would put the Final Cut on and I would sing my head off. Shine on your crazy band!

It's always dificult to choose the best, but Not Now John marked me deeply, Final Cut was the first Pink Floyd album I listened. Excellent vocals from Gilmour combined with the genius of Waters. Great!

Not Now John at 84, are you true Pink Floyd lovers?...

Not Now John at 78...$%&#* ALL THAT WE'VE GOT TO GET ON WITH THESE!

55 The Show Must Go On

Man, I love this song. Short and sweet!

Underrated

56 Empty Spaces

This is on the bottom!? This song is perfect, definitely the best Pink Floyd song in my opinion

This one should had been in the top 20s at least

57 The 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

This is in my opinion the most underrated Floyd Song!

59 Waiting for the Worms

Such an Amazing Song! I love the guitar riff in the middle of the song. It's not my favorite Pink Floyd Song, its in my top 10. It deserves to be higher.
WAITING!

Third best track on 'The Wall'...needs more recognition. A must have in the top 20.

This is for me the most underatted of all pink Floyd catalogue...

One of the most underatted songs in their catalogue.. Sheer injustice..

60 The Nile Song

This is one of my favorite Floyd songs, it's very reminiscent of heavy metal, with a bit of grunge. Easily the best song from More.

I think this is my favorite Floyd song. Not joking. - JCHOW

I can't believe it. The best song from More is 106?

Easily top 30.
