Moop from Newport, RiI hadn't heard this song in forever, and I just listened to it, having recently bought the reissue vinyl pressing of Piper. My immediate thought was - wow - this song sounds like early Devo! Or early Devo sounds like this song!
Zero from Nowhere, NjApparently, this was Roger's attempt at a "Barret-like" composition. He had not yet bloomed into the brilliant songwriter he was yet to become.
This song always reinds me of the Dr. Doctor character from the British cartoon "The Secret Show".
Tristan from Philadelphia, PaGreat song, instrumentals are rediculous and I love it.
Lexx from Milton, Indiathis song has a hint of let there be more light, form saucer full of secrets in there somewhere, i heard it!
Michael from OxfordThis song always strikes me as a sort of warm-up for Interstellar Overdrive.
Shelby from Idiotville , KyI completely agree, Manuel. My favorite song from Piper is "Bike," but this is right behind it. Very underrated.
Manuel from Santo Domingo, OtherThis is one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs, and is my favorite song from the Pipers at the Gate of Dawn. The lyrics don't make too much sense, but one can understan that it is a person in a hospital suffering great pain. However, the beat and riffs of this song make it really awesome. Shame it is not that well known.
Stephens Stills played timbales on the Bee Gees hit, "You Should Be Dancing." He was in the next door studio laying down a Crosby, Stills and Nash album and could hear Saturday Night Fever being recorded. Stills recognized its potential to be a monster hit and he wanted to contribute.
