Most Overrated Pink Floyd Songs

The Top Ten

1 Wish You Were Here

This and another brick in the wall are rather an easy listen compared to most Pink Floyd songs, yet the most popular ones. That's why I think they're overrated.

This is a very difficult list to look at. First of all, even though all the songs on this list are overrated, that does not mean that they are not magnificent works. The only reason why Wish You Were Here gets my vote is because it (along with Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. 2) is typically the only song that non-fans know.

Not that great of a song

2 Shine On You Crazy Diamond

A masterpiece. Never will it be overrated.

Heck no this deserves its praise - christangrant

3 Comfortably Numb

Amazing song, no doubt. But I really think some of the overshadowed songs like Interstellar Overdrive, The Trial, and Another Brick in the Wall, pt. 1, are better. Why? They just have more appeal to me. I don't understand why people claim this song to be Pink Floyd's best. It's like saying the sky is neon, it's questionable. Overall, I don't think this song is Pink Floyd's best. But I do think it's an amazing song. Whatever, it's just my opinion. - MontyPython

It's the song you show to somebody to tell them what the band is about, that's it basically, it has a brilliant guitar solo but I think David has done better on pretty much every other song.

This list shouldn't exist Pink Floyd has no overrated songs - christangrant

4 Breathe
5 Time
6 Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. 2

This is the closest to a Pink Floyd song being overrated but I still say it deserves its praise just like Pink Floyd themselves because they are the greatest rock band ever - christangrant

Pink Floyd have dozens of fantastic songs, but this just isn't one of them. - PetSounds

How is this not number one? This number 1 on the radio in England for a month.

This one, Time and Money are the only ones that my entourage know.
