Crying Song (with Dave)
Astronomy Domine (with Dave) (Ummagumma, that is)
Mudmen (with Dave)
Echoes (with Dave)
Time (with Dave)

Don't forget "Paintbox"
- Steve Hill - 03-09-2005 11:51 AM
Roger does sing on Dark Side Of The Moon. Brain Damage and Eclipse.
- Steve Hill - 03-09-2005 11:52 AM
Forgot to say that Rick sings Goodbye Blue Sky with Roger on The Wall.
This topic reminds me of another recent topic now though. ???
- Love In Spite Of Traffic - 03-09-2005 12:46 PM
Rick sings on Comfortably Numb with Dave. And Roger Only sings on Brain Damage/Eclipse (the high-point of the album imo :) ) on Dark Side.

- Kimbers Sheep - 03-10-2005 12:18 PM
let Rick get a little love in his own area...moved ;)
- Pink Prism - 03-10-2005 02:14 PM
He sings on:
Astronomy Domine with Syd
Mother Matilda with syd
remember a day
let there be more light with dave
Echoes with Dave
Burning bridges with Dave
Stay with Dave
Time with Dave
Us and Them with Dave on the chorus
sings about 5 words in the beginning of Dogs ^^
Wearing ithe nside out with Dave
thats about it i think.
And oh, almost forgot Paintbox.
I think he has the best voice of the band Besides Dave. Very powerful voice actually...just listen to Time and burning bridges...Dave and Rick's vocals are amazing.

It would be so nice
- Gilmour - 06-18-2005 06:05 AM
which bit of dogs does he sing?
- Philintheflesh - 06-18-2005 07:48 AM
[color=Deep Fix]Near the beginning of "Dogs".
There`s a doubling-up in the background of the last line of the
second verse..."You`ll get the chance to put the knife in"
It`s faint, but it`s there.[/color]
- AndersonCouncill - 06-18-2005 06:43 PM
I can't believe anyone thinks Rick's voice is better than Roger's. I think Roger has one of the best rocker voices ever!

AndersonCouncill Wrote:I can't believe anyone thinks Rick's voice is better than Roger's. I think Roger has one of the best rocker voices ever!I would add "Breathe" to the list... Although Dave's voice is louder, it seems more like a duet than lead-vocal/harmony.
For "Us and Them," he sings with Dave on the chorus, right?
I never noticed Rick's voice on "Dogs" at all... will have to go back and listen!
He barely sings on "Momentary Lapse" at all, but his voice is pretty audible on harmony on a few lines of "Learning to Fly."
You can also hear him sing harmony with Roger on "Shine on." For example, Roger sings "Remember when you were young," and then Rick harmonizes on "You shone like the sun."
I can't hear Rick's voice on the Wall myself, but he sings pretty audibly on the live versions of Comfortably Numb.
- SOYCD123 - 07-12-2005 08:20 AM
Yes he sings very well
- Space Cadet - 07-12-2005 10:28 AM
Rick has one of the most taking, lyrical voices in all the world. I really do love it when he sings.
- atmospherium - 07-12-2005 06:05 PM
All three of the boys had (and still have) very distinctive voices.
I liked it best when they traded lead vocals in a song: Rick & Syd on Matilda Mother, Roger, Dave & Rick on Let There Be More Light, Dave & Rick on Time, Dave & Roger on Mother, etc.
It made it sound more like a band, all working together, than a leader with silent backing musicians (most of Final Cut).
I've always thought Rick had the most British voice of them all. Very crisp and clipped.

- atmospherium - 07-12-2005 08:44 PM
Ahem...er, I guess I was thinking post-Mr Barret. I mean, this thread is about Rick Wright, right? You aren't refering to Mr Mason, are you? What did he ever do except express his desire to cut me into little pieces?
Giving the matter some thought, between Syd on Piper and Dave on Saucer, I don't think any other band has topped the amount of "r" trilling and rolling that goes on.
I may be wrong. Being American, I hardly speak English at all.

- mabewa - 07-13-2005 03:43 AM
Yes, Rick has the most British voice... except Syd, of course.
I'm glad that there are other people besides me who really like Rick's voice!
A question: on the live version of "Breath" that they played at Live 8, was Rick singing harmony? He usually sings the high parts on Breathe, and it sounded like him, but I couldn't even see him, so I couldn't tell! What do you all think?

RE Live 8: No, Rick didn't sing at all. He didn't have a mic :(
- mabewa - 07-14-2005 12:35 AM
Yeah, I noticed that at least once of the guys playing keys had no mic, but it was so hard to see either key player that I thought it might be the other guy who had no mic.
No mic for Rick? BOO! I always hate it when Rick isn't credited for vocals--worse yet for him to not even have a mic.
I hope that he actually had one of those clip-on mics and really was singing, but I fear that you are right...
- Wanna Take A Bath? - 07-14-2005 06:21 PM
He sings backup on see emily play as well
- mabewa - 07-16-2005 06:07 PM
...actually, if you are going to talk about the Barret era, Rick seems to sing backup on EVERYTHING (except for the stuff he sings lead on!). I mean, Barret and Wright's harmonies, such a great part of the early Floyd.
- King Bee - 08-02-2005 03:42 PM
Cant Forget IMO the best song Ricks ever sung It Would Be So Nice (rare song) download it NOW!!!
- Scream Thy Last Scream - 08-03-2005 09:56 AM
ricks voice actually resembled syds at the time. its a wonder to see the paintbox video and see rick sing it. it looks cool. and i agree with king bee, it would be so nice is a brilliant song. i was going to put that on my acoustic compilation, but sadly (or gladly) its a full band effort that is so sixties
- Radio Slaver - 08-03-2005 04:56 PM
I do enjoy that mans voice, he should have sung more often than he did.
- Nunca - 08-03-2005 06:36 PM
WOuld someone upload "It would be so nice" please?
I love it when Rick gets a chance to sing too, its like your getting a rare treat.... :D
"Remember a Day" and "See Saw" are some of Pink Floyds best work. I LOVE See Saw, its really got some harmony in it.

Its great when Rick sings because his voice is so powerful. Well Roger's is damn cool and Dave's is smooth and very pronounced Rick's voice is just biting.

Thanks anyways though, I appreciate it.
Its a great song, Rick really should have had more time to shine on the official albums.
- mabewa - 08-06-2005 11:45 PM
Speaking of the backups he did on most of the "Piper" songs, the last verse of "Bike" has some very nice Wright harmonies.
