  • Lyrics
  • This was a song written by Richard Wright and Roger Waters for Pink Floyd's 1972 soundtrack to the film La Vallee, Obscured by Clouds. The song deals with a one night stand, or possibly a groupie. It's similar to Rick Wright's song "Summer '68" on Ummagumma. >>

  • Terry from Wickford, RiA fantastic song that I had always hoped Rick would break out and play live the way he did with some of his other material when he toured with Gilmour. Since David did Wots...from this album recently, I had some hope for this one...a pity...I had also hoped they might give the mix on this album an overhaul one's a little thin sounding (as Roger agrees if you carefully listen to some of his comments during the Pompeii film)
  • Kevin from Ellicott City, MdObscured is a much too over looked album full of wonderful songs that were written and recorded in a very short period of time. Stay has always been one of favorites from this album.
  • Dogma from Alexandria, LaI've always loved this song. It's my second favorite song on the Obscured By Clouds album (behind Wots Uh The Deal). I love Rick Wright's vocals on this tune.

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
