Best Songs From Pink Floyd's The Division Bell


The Top Ten

1 High Hopes

Great song that seems to have a hint of Roger Water's influence lyrically and musically on the band.

Why isn't this song more known? The guitar solo is beautiful and the lyrics are great. Oh and not forget to mention Gilmours haunting vocals!
This song is a masterpiece. - Userguy44

I can't consider myself a Pink Floyd and Ill just say this: this is one of my all time favourite songs. The song is deep, spiritual, beautiful!..

Great song! - Userguy44

2 Marooned

One of the most stunning Rock-Instrumentals ever composed - Lauda123

Dreamy, amazing guitar instrumental from the legendary guitarist David Gilmour. - SammySpore

Maybe the best Pink Floyd instrumental song!

Every note moves you as the song progresses. A beautiful instrumental by Pink Floyd and one of my favorite songs.
Pink Floyd rules!

3 Coming Back to Life

This song is amazing. It always makes me feel good when I'm sad and I love that ending guitar solo. Absolutely beautiful. Better than Marooned and High Hopes put together.

Pink Floyd is known for doing some pretty depressing music ( especially during the Waters era ), but Coming Back to Life is an exception. First, there's the title, then, there's the intro: two minutes of that beautiful synth pad and Gilmours soaring guitar solo. Finally, there's the music and lyrics. It just makes you want to dance. To me, it lifts me up when I'm doen, and if you haven't heard this song, and you are feeling down, I STRONGLy recommend this. Also if you are that kind of guy who thinks that Pink Floyd is just a depressing, hopeless band, give this song a listen, and then, you will immediately change your mind about them. This is by far the best song in the Gilmour era, and nothing will ever change that.

Such a brilliant song! No doubt the best of any post-Waters material.

"While you were hanging yourself on someone else's words, dying to believe what you heard; I was staring into the shiny sun." Simply awesome!

4 Wearing the Inside Out

This is the only song post-Dark Side (excluding The Endless River) that does not have Gilmour or Waters credited to it. This song is Rick Wright's voice singing out about how he's lost connection with the band (after all, they fired him during The Wall sessions). However, there are glimmers of hope in this song, signifying Wright's revival from isolation and rejection.

A bit like high hopes in that it gives you some hope and aspiration for the future. Great guitar solos and sax too.

A great piece by Rick Wright, my favorite from the whole album

It's a great song if you need to relax

5 Poles Apart

This brilliant song is very underrated. It always brings me back to earlier Pink Floyd, specifically Atom Heart Mother, during the middle instrumental section. Thank you David Gilmour.

Best song from division bell

Very underrated...

I love this song, it doesn't get the recognition it deserves. Interesting lyrics about his past fellow bandmates. Beautiful and poetic

6 Keep Talking

It shouldn't have to be like this. All we have to do is make sure we keep voting.

I like that comment as much as I like this song. Which is a lot. - PositronWildhawk

7 A Great Day for Freedom

When A Great Day for Freendom is on any list, it has no comments. Guess I'm the first to put a comment for AGDFF. Not a bad little song amazing outro.

9 Lost for Words

I love this song so much. I burned a copy of Division Bell for the car. Sadly, I couldn't put this wonderful song on it because of explicit language. I took High Hopes off as well because taking Lost for Words off but not High Hopes would ruin the flow of the album. Someday, I'm gonna buy the vinyl so I will have the whole thing. Does anyone know where I can find a clean version of Lost for Words?

This is a good song high hopes is better but I wish this was a little higher than 5. Why ain't this 3 at least but high hopes better stay 1 lost for words is a good song so is coming back to life and marooned
But take it back wasn't good at all man

Awesome song. I wish it didn't have a swear word though so I can play it with my family. - SammySpore

I voted because in my opinion this is the second best song in the album (right after High Hopes of course)

10 Take It Back

My favorite album no song was bad describing all songs
Cluster one -very relaxing
What do you want from me-wakes me up after cluster one and a great beat
Poles apart-very cool and one of my favorite 7 min. Song
Marooned-best instrumental by Pink Floyd
A great day for freedom-very good music and lyrics
Wearing the inside out-a song to listen to when you need to chill out
Take it back-sometimes put me in a good mood
Coming back to live-best 6 min. Song in 1994 and very good lyrics
Keep talking-epic guitar noise
Lost for words-most musical song on this album
High hopes-my favorite Pink Floyd song ever and a good ending to this album and final song by Pink Floyd written

Just because it sound like U2, doesn't mean it's bad. This should be at the top with Coming Back To Life. Just beautiful.

I was going to vote for Keep Talking or Coming Back To Life but Take It Back on the bottom? we have to fix that. This song makes me feel peaceful and relaxed and just has a feel that no other song on the album has.

To tell you the truth, none of these songs should be on the bottom. Except Lost For Words.

The Contenders

11 Cluster One

Beautiful, sharp, and breathtaking chemistry between Gilmour's guitar and Wright's Piano. Although it's not my favorite, I can't stand to see it in last place.

Ambient song with amazing piano. I listen to this song whenever I need some great piano music. - SammySpore
