Most Underrated Pink Floyd Songs


The Top Ten

1 High Hopes

Highly underrated song this song was should be in hall of fame.

Underrated song from an underrated album - RalphSaad

Yes, I like high hopes. But I also think Any Colour you Like sohuld be on this list. - PeterG28

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

26? This is definitely their most underrated song.

Not underrated. - PanagosBoi

I love the guitar intro to this song!

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

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

Great song. and also underrated. - zxm

4 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

5 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.

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 Another Brick In the Wall Pt. 2

It's overrated, not underrated.

That's not underrated

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.

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 Contenders

11 Don't Leave Me Now

One of the best songs of pink floyd if not the

12 The Fletcher Memorial Home

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

This and not now John

13 Any Colour You Like

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

14 Remember a Day
15 Fat Old Sun

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.

16 A Great Day for Freedom
17 Let There Be More Light

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

18 Matilda Mother

Beautiful track, definitely deserves more love.

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 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.

22 Seamus

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!

This is cool. - MilkmanBoi

23 Not Now John

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

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

24 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!

25 Marooned

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 - wavedimp089

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

26 Ibiza Bar

Practically every good song from More is underrated. - Doom

27 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...

28 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.

29 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

30 Time

What. Everybody knows this - LizardKing99

31 Careful With That Axe, Eugene
32 Cirrus Minor
33 Pigs (Three Different Ones)

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

27? ha ha charade you are

34 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

35 Mother

That's not underrated

36 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.

37 Speak to Me/ Breathe
38 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

39 Grantchester Meadows
40 Wot's... Uh the Deal?
41 Wearing the Inside Out
42 San Tropez

This will always be their most underrated track in my opinion

43 The Final Cut
44 Brain Damage
45 Have a Cigar
46 Cymbaline
47 Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun
48 Welcome to the Machine
49 Corporal Clegg

Of course this song is underrated because it is highly disrespectful! Sure it has great music and that is why I like this song but I don't listen to the lyrics. It a lot of times is best to not listen to the lyrics of songs.

50 Mudmen

60? This is their most underrated song. - MaxPap
