Top Ten David Gilmour Solo Songs

The Top Ten
On an Island On an Island Cover Art

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!

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

Really neat song. Sounds like the marching hammers from the wall.


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

Great tribute to John Lenon

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

Brilliant song, it's capturing...

This song is just beautiful.

Awesome song

The live version from Pompeii is incredible, one of his very best and one of my favorites.

I absolutely agree with the last comment. What a powerful song. Breathtaking concert (Live in Pompeji)

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.

Out of the Blue

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"

Dave' best solo song

Rattle That Lock Rattle That Lock Cover Art

What the heck? Why is the amazing Rattle that Lock at 7? This is his best for sure. Very catchy.

"I'll make my getaway
Time on my own
Search for a better way
To find my way home
To your smile."

This song is definition of beauty.

Love the soft tone, great acoustic sounds and mellow voice
