That song is amazing, it's hard to belive that it was written, and performed in 1969, AMAZING!!!! Way ahead of it's time, I mean it's like hard rock, like Matalica or something. I LOVE IT!

Yup, it's a great song...very..non-Floyd.

they shoulda done a lot more songs like that, i like it.
you know what other song i found to be not very floyd? biding my time. and i love that song beyond belief. i think they should have done more songs like that as well. SO DAMN AMAZING!!!!!!!!

EXCACTLY, I agree 100%!!! Relics is a forgoten album, nobody every talks about it, and there are some great, and amazing songs on there, too bad it is underrated. (maybe because it was stuck in between medel, and DSOTM)

awesome, awesome song...it could be released today and be a hit...and moved to Albums ;)

Very good song...the first time my sister heard it she said "is this Nirvana?" Quite funny. I also agree that Biding My Time is a fantastic song. It's kind of like they threw all the stuff they wrote that was distinctly "not" them onto Relics, along with some past hits for the initial draw.

Yeah, the first time I heard "The Nile Song" I felt the same way, I even send it to a friend saying like "man! This was recorded in the 60s!!!!"
Relics is an amazing album. Julia Dream made me cry the first time I heard. SO beautiful.

Both are incredible rockers. They could do a whole album of songs like The Nile Song and I would buy it instantly. I love that Floyd. Same with Biding My Time, that solo was really Gilmour's first epic and paved the way for The Gold It's In The..., Time, Pigs (Three Different Ones), Dogs, and Comfortably Numb.
Have any of you guys wondered: on The Nile Song, you can obviously tell they are having a blast doing it - Gilmour screams "YEAH!!!" and Roger counters with "WOOOOO!" back over and over, it gets me wondering...If they were having so much fun just rocking out like that, why didn't they do more songs of that nature?
