First, I must apologize for the delay in posting. There have been ‘computer’ issues at the Glover house and I will leave it at that. I won’t go into the boring mechanics of what two geriatric laptops can and indeed will do when they start giving you fits at the same time. Needless to say fun, it was not. In any event, I am up and running to some extent and want to get a fresh post on all my blogs. In my quest to name the top 25 songs ever, with some great honorable mentions, I am now to #23. What “greatest” song list could be complete without Pink Floyd? The biggest issue I had was “Comfortably Numb” or “Wish You Were Here”. It was like saying pick the best Sees fine candy or the greatest French Champagne. The most beautiful of impressionism art by the great artist of the time or the most beautiful 5 star dinner in downtown Manhattan’s 5 star restaurants. In the end I chose “Comfortably Numb” only for a couple reasons. The album “The Wall” is my favorite Pink Floyd album and it is a very unique album in and of itself.
If you want to find out about one of the most unique pieces of work available, you can certainly read. I will just give this one fact that fascinates me. With “The Wall”. there is no beginning and no end. Seriously! It loops! Listen if you don’t believe me. It is like a crazy, weird ride you cannot get off of.
Comfortably numb is indeed a song about drugs but I am not saying “drugs are ok” and that is why I like the song. I like the mellow, ethereal sound of it. Almost surreal. Songs ‘take me places’. Some good. Some bad. Some weird. Some sad. So for the best all time song, #23, I vote, “Comfortably Numb”.
