Top Ten David Gilmour Solo Songs

The Top Ten

1 On an Island

One of his best solos, especially the live version at the Royal Albert Hall.

Top 3 favorite solo's of Gilmour's...along with Comfortably Numb (of course) and The Division Bell. Gorgeous song...wonderful harmony vocals. Add in Richard Wright's distinctive keyboards creating that Pink Floyd-esque soundscape and you have classic David Gilmour!

2 Murder

From quiet acoustic part to hard prog electric guitar. Impressive!

4 There's No Way Out of Here

Great from Start to Finish, up there in both Gilmour's solo work and Pink Floyd as a whole.

Awesome song

This song is just beautiful.

Brilliant song, it's capturing...

5 Out of the Blue

Dave' best solo song

Very emotional and powerful song. in my humble opinion the best Daves solo song by far.

"Out of the blue on the wings of a dove
A messenger comes, with the beating of drums
It's not a message of love"

6 In Any Tongue

Best guitar solo of the 2000's.

It should be in top three. It has amazing concept and lyric. and the solo at the end is breathtaking. - douknowtanveer
