Most Emotional Floyd Song - Opinions
I am talking about that song that moves you in the deepest of your soul. I pick WYWH. It always mekes me weep .... :D
Wish you was here made me have a tear in my at live8
I would say The Final Cut,

And if I show you my dark side
will you still hold me tonight
and if I open my heart to you
and show you my weak side

Those lines get me everytime. That song or The Gunner's Dream:

"And no one kills the children anymore..."

Beautiful lyrics and wonderful vocals by Roger. rocker
And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

Lois don't be alarmed-but I think I'm Jesus
Yeah, The Final Cut is just pure, unadulterated emotion...fantastic. I also find this line from Your Possible Pasts poignant:

Do you remember me
How we used to be
Don't you think we should be

There's also If, which I think is Roger's most intensely personal song...not apologizing for or justifying (as The Wall does) his inner self, just exposing it for the world to ponder.

But Jugband Blues is, to me, the most heartwrenching song in the entire Pink Floyd canon. Syd lays bare his psyche, and you can feel his pain in every note. The last stanza sends chills down my spine every time I hear it...
If it ain't dirty, don't clean it.
so, you voted for the FINAL Cut ...... ?
The Final Cut gets my vote.
jugband blues because its an end of an era
Wish You Were Here is just stunning. It's one of those songs that everyone can relate to, and apply to their own lives. I remember after 9/11, when Fred Durst and Johnny Rzeznick did that cover of WYWH, during that televised special. It was extremely moving because a lot of people were still missing at that point. Everytime I hear that song, it strikes a nerve.
Rick Wright 1943-2008. I will never change my avatar.
Wish You Were Here got my vote.
.. but I was listening to Atom Heart Mother last saturday and after a few beers "If" really got to me.
WYWH. The lyrics are absolutely beautiful. From an emotional stand point this is almost impossible to match.
