Most Overrated Pink Floyd Songs

The Top Ten

1 Wish You Were Here

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.

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.

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 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

As a big Pink Floyd fan I can say that this is probably their most ovverrated song. It is good, of course, but they have a lot of song that are much better (Comfortably Numb, Echoes, Shine On, Time), but this one though is their most popular and well-known. - Merkwurdigliebe

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

4 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

5 Dogs
6 Breathe
7 Hey You
8 Mother
9 Time

Nah this is a great song. - Userguy44

This should be #1

Lyrics are amazing but other than that it's not that good - MaxPap

10 Welcome to the Machine

The Contenders

11 Any Colour You Like
12 Waiting for the Worms
13 Pigs (Three Different Ones)
14 Money

The peaple in this list have brain problems. Thiz is floyds mo ovre rated zong. It over shadows so much floyd. It lacks emotion and stuff.

15 Sings of Life
16 Echoes
17 Us and Them
18 Run Like Hell
19 Goodbye Cruel World
20 Wearing the Inside Out
21 Don't Leave Me Now

This song isn't that good

22 Cluster One

In order to be overrated, a song should get too much credit. This is one of their most overlooked songs/instrumentals. I think nothing from Division Bell should be on this list. - Alkadikce

23 On the Run
24 Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. 3
25 Poles Apart
26 The Trial
27 High Hopes

Not overrated at all. Is it here because it's the most well known song of the album? - Userguy44

Oh yeah, very underrated. The song isn't bad but it isn't anywhere near my favorites.

Between the meaning of underrated is that the music deserve to be more successful
