Whether they're underrated or not is debatable but I love them:

Wot's...Uh the Deal
Yet Another Movie
The Post War Dream
A Pillow of Winds
The Show Must Go On

I define underrated songs as those which are familiar to people but aren't truly appreciated for any number of reasons. These are some examples of songs I think are underrated not so much because of popularity but rather the way they're recorded or their uniqueness in some way:

Welcome to the Machine
Pillow of Winds
Summer '68
Nile song
Quicksilver :)
The Narrow Way
Green is the Color
Marooned

Definitely this.

Maybe any of these too:

Coming Back to Life
Summer '68
Atom Heart Mother Suite
Another Brick in the Wall Part 1 (everyone loves pt.2 ... pt.1 gets no love)
Sorrow

Sorry people, but I would have to say any song from "The Final Cut", especially the the titled song "The Final Cut". I know Ol' Roger sounded like a Whiney broken record sometimes, but that's why we love him I guess.
I also like the rest of the album because I just look at it as a short sequel to the wall.

A Pillow of Winds is EXTREMELY underrated. It's one of Pink Floyd's greatest songs, in my opinion. A Pillow of Winds is a beautiful, transcendent song that is very poetic and dreamy, with glorious, interlocking guitars and excellent lyrics. And yet, most Pink Floyd fans seem to not care for this song. Sad

I hear you there! Its an amazing song for all those reasons you just mentioned. As far as David's vocals, go this song, along with Fearless and Wots uh the deal.......are truly great.

I agree, David Gilmour is awesome. Meddle is my favorite Pink Floyd album mostly because of Echoes, Fearless and a Pillow of Winds. I also love San Tropez & One of These Days. A Pillow of Winds was ahead of its time, hard to believe that it was released in 1971.
Another underrated Pink Floyd song is If. Such a beautiful, meaningful song with some of Roger Waters' best, most emotional and vulnerable vocals. Atom Heart Mother is an extremely under-appreciated album.

I don't know if I'd agree with Welcome To The Machine, but I'd throw Burning Bridges into that list. You could theoretically put every song from OBC in an "underrated" list and make a solid point.
