Flaming

by

Pink Floyd



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

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.

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.

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.

In the name of song explanation, Al talks about scoring heroin for William Burroughs, and that's not even the most shocking story in this one.
