The Top Ten

1 Time - Dark Side of the Moon

This the first one I learned and is easy at most times and is beautiful to play live - mr_crossover27

This song defines Pink Floyd. Angry and calm vocal approaches. Soaring distorted guitar solos. Great druming, keyboards bass, harmonies and proggresive rock at its hieght.

2 Another Brick In the Wall, Pt. 1 - The Wall

These 3 songs show how the Floyd can be deppresing and dark ( Pt. 1) groovy and rebellious ( Pt.2 ) and dazed and confused ( Pt. 3 ). Kinda sums up a teenagers lifestyle.
