Best Things About Pink Floyd

The Top Ten

1 Their Songwriting

Every song is new, and contain no filler. They wrote about philosophical ideas no others dared to write about, and wrote them beautifully.

Pink Floyd- most creative band ever - mr_crossover27

almost every song is a masterpiece.

2 David Gilmour David Jon Gilmour is an English singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. He joined the progressive rock band Pink Floyd as guitarist and co-lead vocalist in 1968.

He is a great artist. I hate it when people spell his name wrong. It's G I L M O U R. Think English spelling. Thank you.

I just love how this is actually a reason. When I saw the title of the list my immediate thought was David Gilmour.

he's guitar playing can bring any1 to tears!

Probably the best musician in history, the only competition he has is with Mozart or Beethoven

3 Their Musicianship

The guitar solos, the basselines, the sound effects. They really knew how to play instruments.

4 Roger Waters George Roger Waters is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He is mostly known for being the secondary lead vocalist and bassist of Pink Floyd.

most underrated vocalist of all time! wrote most of the wall too!

I was shocked to see that he has over 4.5 octave vocal range (nearly 5 octaves)

5 The Wall
6 Syd Barrett Roger Keith Barrett was an English musician, composer, singer, songwriter, and painter. Best known as a founder member of the band Pink Floyd, Barrett was the lead singer, guitarist and principal songwriter in its early years and is credited with naming the band.

He was the band. Think of it. Every album is something about him (apart from meddle and learning to fly). Without him Pink Floyd wouldn't have become big.

He started the band and came up with the name.

he was 1st to lead pink floyd.

7 Rick Wright

He is Seriously Underrated! He's the genius behind The Great Gig in The Sky, Us and Them, Time and many others. Not to mention, it's because of him that we have the iconic cover of the Dark Side of The Moon! His contributions are really overlooked.

Oh Richard! Such a beautiful human being. Still can't believe he's gone! He was the Heart of Pink Floyd.. Rest in peace you shiny diamond. - BENNN

One of the best keyboardists in Prog Rock - RalphSaad

8 Dark Side of the Moon

greatest album ever! Sadly doesn't contain comfortably numb.

9 Their Live Shows

o! preaty colours! (colour is how pink floyd spells it)!

10 Nick Mason Nicholas Berkeley "Nick" Mason is an English musician and composer, best known as the drummer of legendary rock band Pink Floyd.

He's so underrated! He deserves more credit as a drummer.

The Contenders

11 Their Over 20 Min. Songs

I feel like I go on a journey every time I listen to one of their epic 20+ minute pieces, they're all so masterfully written.

Atom Heart Mother, Echoes, and Shine On You Crazy Diamond.

Atom Heart Mother gets me crying every time.

Atom Heart Mother is the most deep, emotional, and beautiful experience I've ever had

12 Comfortably Numb
13 They Don't Rely On a Single Member

then syd barrett left they continued playing, then roger water left they were still playing

When they started they relied a lot on Syd until he went nuts.

14 Meddle

most underrated pink floyd album

15 Not Afraid to Experiment

Pink Floyd isn't just a rock band, they are art! They started as an experiment and ended up as a masterpiece. Its hard to find this much creativeness in 4 men besides the Beatles and Zeppelin - mr_crossover27

16 Echoes
17 Careful With That Axe Eugene

Greatest wigout of all time

18 Animals - Pink Floyd
19 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
