Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here (1975)

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

I am not a big Pink Floyd fan.

However, after a major catastrophe with my iTunes library, I found this inadvertently on the playlist tonight. And, to be fair, it is a stunning record.

Also, with the 50th birthday just ticking by, one becomes conscious that friends and family are gradually taking their leave physically and/or spiritually from this mortal coil. Really wish they were all still here.

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

The LP version then a stunning Unplugged take.
