Flaming by Pink Floyd

Album: The Piper At The Gates Of DawnReleased: 1967
  • From their debut album, this was the third Pink Floyd single released in the United States. It was written by Syd Barrett, who was a founding member of the band, but became an acid casualty and had to leave the band a few years later when he lost his mind. Typical of Barrett's work, it's a very psychedelic song. (thanks, John - Chicago, IL)

If you listen closely around 2:32 and again at 2:34 you hear the sound of a dog barking.J - Lx, Portugal

This is the song that the ABC "This Week" used for their "In Memoriam" segment about Syd's death.
Very appropriate, and I wept for the loss of the Painter, the Piper, the Prisoner, the Crazy Diamond.

What the heck is a buggy-doo if that's what he's saying?G - Potomac, Md

This song just carries you away. Very Sgt. Pepper like, but its so much more. Just listening to this song with my eyes close, or open, brings me to another place entirely. If only their could have been more songs like this but alas too many people got in the way.Tristan - Philadelphia, Pa
