Most Underrated Pink Floyd Songs


The Top Ten

1 High Hopes

This is just as good as their more well known songs. - Userguy44

Although this is my favorite song of all time, I would pick Keep Talking or What Do You Want From Me from Division Bell, not the best-known track. - Alkadikce

The lap steel guitar solo at the end of this song is just godly. Sometimes I feel like it's better than the comfortably numb guitar solo. David Gilmore had magic in his fingers.

This song truly is highly underrated.

What the hell high hopes isn’t even that underrated

2 Dogs

Everyone know's Animals but none of the songs

I love the guitar intro to this song!

17 minutes turns people off, but this is definitely their best composition. Period.

Not underrated. - PanagosBoi

Dreamy,philosophical and downright amazing. Pink Floyd is definitely better than any kind of pop music today

Great song. and also underrated. - zxm

4 Atom Heart Mother

Dogs isn't underrated. Neither is High Hopes, except for the retards that think Pink Floyd without Roger Waters is crap.

THIS is underrated. - MaxPap

Una de las mejores piezas de Pink Floyd. El sólo de Gilmour de los mejores de su carrera.

5 A Pillow of Winds

A beautiful acoustic song, showcasing an almost Beatles like melody, this Meddle deep cut is seriously overlooked. This is a fantastic song to listen to whilst watching a sunset, or just sitting back and relaxing. Gilmour further shows his exceptional vocal talents here as well.

One of the most criminally underrated Pink Floyd songs out there. The lovely Acoustic and slide guitars, as well as the singing by Gilmour, are what make this dreamy,melancholic, song so good. definitely one of their most underrated and actually my second favorite song from Meddle ( behind Echoes ).

Hypnotic - RalphSaad

6 Fearless

I would advise all pink Floyd fans to listen to this song closely and you'll fall in love with it!

So underrated and one of my favourite Floyd songs - BrianScott01

If there werent the football fans singing this would be one of pink floyd's best songs - MilkmanBoi

7 Let There Be More Light

How could this be so low? This is my favorite song and it's underrated. - Lsdjesus

This song is an epic rollercoaster and a fantastic introduction to a very underrated Floyd album.

8 The Nile Song
9 Julia Dream

Beautiful keyboards by Rick and hypnotic vocals by David - RalphSaad

Hauntingly what sums it up best..

10 Childhood's End

Awesome song, should be a famous hit - connormouat

Similar to Time - BrianScott01

Fantastic kickass song. It's a psychedelic rocker. - atomicpowur

The Newcomers

? Coming Back to Life

I had no idea this was from the post-Waters era when I first heard it. - Alkadikce

It's a perfect song

? Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun

The Contenders

11 Don't Leave Me Now

One of the best songs of pink floyd if not the

12 Another Brick In the Wall Pt. 2

Another Brick In The Wall, as one whole song, listened in one piece may be underrated. However, part 2 is their most famous song and also overplayed on radio. - Alkadikce

More overrated than underrated.

Not underrated at all! This is one of their best known songs. - BossDj0

It's overrated, not underrated.

13 Matilda Mother

Beautiful track, definitely deserves more love.

14 The Fletcher Memorial Home

This and not now John

One of the best guitar riffs in all of Pink Floyd history! I love this song!

15 Remember a Day
16 Fat Old Sun

Solo’s amaizng

While Fat Old Sun isn't as good as High Hopes, we can all agree that this song is much more underrated.

I simply love the way that the background instruments start to get louder and louder eventually getting louder than the vocals and starting a great guitar solo. Very underrated solo.

17 A Great Day for Freedom
18 Any Colour You Like

Not enough lime light, Richard Wright's best work

After "Time," this is, in my opinion, the best song on DSotM. Highly underrated!

19 Hey You!
20 The Trial

This song is hilarious and I love it. The first line, 'Good evening, worm your honor,' is one of my favorite Pink Floyd lyrics.

21 Learning to Fly

This song is amazing. - MrSnuffleupagus

22 Summer '68

This is honestly such a great song... really sums up the unknown genre of Jazz Rock. The beat is just incredible!

Basically, just like fat old sun, another underrated gem from Atom Heart Mother.

23 Seamus

No - Pointingfingers

All you guys just shut up! This song is funny to me and I really enjoy it. If your a fan of Meddle, how do you think the album would song without it.

I'm a huge pink floyd song, but I don't really like this song

Worst song by far off Meddle!

24 Marooned

I agree with a YouTube comment that this is the guitar version of The Great Gig In The Sky. - Alkadikce

I don't say this is the best pink floyd's song but still one of my favorite, for me this song is clearly underrated

25 Not Now John

Awesome song. The Final Cut may not be Pink Floyd's best album, but this song is great. - Metarock

This has always been one of my favorites, and it doesn't really get that much credit, very underrated.

26 Poles Apart

I don't see many people really appreciating this song!
The lyrics are so beautiful and vocals are also brilliant by Gilmour.
This has to be the most underrated The Division Bell Song!

This beautiful masterpiece does not get the respect and attention it deserves. It starts out as a soft acoustic, then goes into a strange middle section which I believe represents madness, then goes back into the same tune as the beginning but much more rocky. Please listen to it.

And voters "did you know I never thought you would loose that light in your eyes." SO VOTE FOR IT!

27 Ibiza Bar

Practically every good song from More is underrated. - Doom

28 The Gunner's Dream


Definitely the most underrated PF song..the lyrics are out of this world..if you concentrate and listen,this song will take you'll take you up to the jet of the gunner and it'll drop you down from there while you interpret the brilliant lyrical composition...

29 Interstellar Overdrive
30 Cirrus Minor

Must be number 1 - Pointingfingers

31 A Saucerful of Secrets

From Ummagumma and other live recordings, David's vocals blended with Rick's organ, Nick's drums, and Roger's bass, create the perfect Pink Floyd Sound

32 The Final Cut
33 Nobody Home

One of Roger Waters' most powerful and emotional vocal performances, this track is incredibly underrated, due to it being overshadowed by the song that comes just three tracks later, Comfortably Numb. David Gilmour has even stated that this is one of his favourite songs off The Wall. It should be much higher than this.

34 San Tropez

This will always be their most underrated track in my opinion

35 Louder Than Words

The entire album is underrated, but the song completes the band's journey - lyrically and literally alike. Last song on their last album - ever. Fitting way to go out!

This song is a masterpiece. This was their best song since The Wall.

So underrated. Beautiful song.

36 Careful With That Axe, Eugene
37 Pigs (Three Different Ones)

27? ha ha charade you are

I personally think this is Gilmour's best guitar solo. It has something that his other solos don't have. - Plonderss

Has By Far Gilmour's Most Underrated Guitar Solo

38 Grantchester Meadows
39 See Saw

Best song of a saucerful of secrets hands down - Shaun3

40 Wearing the Inside Out
41 See Emily Play

This is REALLY underrated. Pink Floyd's first hit ever. Syd's vocals and all the interesting sounds that they use makes a great, weird and whimsical masterpiece. - galaxyfox

42 Wot's... Uh the Deal?
43 The Thin Ice
44 Mother

That's not underrated

45 Brain Damage
46 Cymbaline
47 Paintbox

This is a great song! I was going to vote either Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun or Let there be more Light be I had to put my vote for Pain Box. Get this to the top. PLEAZ!
