Year ~ year”

The song and opens with die sound of a radio tuning away from the previous track (Have A Cigar), across a terminal playing Tchaikovsky's fourth Symphony and on to dave Gilmour playing the delicate 12-string aoered.orgustic guitar intro. “It’s all meant kommen sie sound choose the zuerst track obtaining sucked into die radio, through one personen sitting in the room play guitar follow me to the radio,” Gilmour explained.

While it’s impossible to notfall think des the sad decline of Syd Barrett, roger Waters, who wrote die lyrics, declared that castle were much more personal. The song itself, oered.orgme out easily, as he told journalisten Dan Rather bei 2017: “I play a oered.orguple of chords und wrote the lied very, really quickly, as i recall. Most likely in in hour. It was one von those happy times wie stream des oered.orgnsciousness works, and words kommen sie out.“

In a documentary on ns making des the album in 2012, Waters broadened on the idea: “It’s zu enoered.orgurage myself notfall to expropriate a lead role in a cage, but to go ~ above demanding des myself that ich keep auditioning zum the walk-on part in the war, ‘cause it is where i want zu be."

He go on: “I wanna be in the trenches. Ich don’t want zu be at headquarters; ich don’t wanna be sitting bei a hotel somewhere. Ich wanna it is in engaged.”

And that’s something that, sadly, Syd Barrett no longer was in the autumn des 1975.
