Седемте изкуства в една група – Pink Floyd

Сподели

Много ми се иска това да бъде кратко интро, защото смятам, че Пинк Флойд нямат нужда от представяне. По същество – Пинк Флойд са английска рок група, основана през 1965-а г. Името на групата е в чест на двама блус музиканти, Pink Anderson и Floyd Council.

През годините претърпяват промени в състава си, като това се отразява и в музиката им. Минават през 3 фронтмена – Сид Барет, Роджър Уотърс и Дейвид Гилмор, като и тримата имат различен подход към музиката. Пикът в кариерата на групата се смята за 70-те, когато са издадени най-продаваните албуми на групата, а именно The Dark Side of The Moon и The Wall.

Но нека отбележа, че може това да са техните най-комерсиално успешни проекти, но със сигурност не са единствените им творчески успехи. Под името на групата Пинк Флойд стоят не 2, а 15 студийни албума. Флойд не са група, която можеш да съдиш по една песен или албум. Музиката, която предлагат в каталога си, е иновативна и различна от класическата рок банда.


Започваме от Сид Барет, който създава психеделично настроение и хумор в The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, през бунтарските текстове на Уотърс в Animals и стигаме до по-бавните песни с история към тях на Гилмор в Division Bell. Още основни идеи, които засягат в музиката си са злоупотребата с наркотици, войната, личните си терзания, философски теми и куп други въпроси от заобикалящия ни свят.

Минавайки през всичко това, смело мога да твърдя, че подходът към всеки Пинк Флойд албум е различен или просто казано – за всеки влак си има пътници.

Отделете от времето си за да изслушате некъсата дискография на Пинк Флойд и намерете своя “влак”, защото смятам, че всеки себеуважаващ се почитател на музика е хубаво да бъде запознат с творчеството на тази група.

11. Astronomy Domine

Lime and limpid green, a second scene
A fight between the blue you once knew
Floating down, the sound resounds
Around the icy waters underground
Jupiter and Saturn, Oberon, Miranda and Titania
Neptune, Titan, stars can frighten

 

10. High Hopes

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world filled with magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun
Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway
Do they still meet there by the Cut
There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before time took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

 

9. Time (The Dark Side of The Moon – 1973)

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your hometown
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

 

8. Yet Another Movie –  (A Momentary Lapse of Reason – 1987)

One sound, one single sound
One kiss, one single kiss
A face outside the window pane
However did it come to this?
A man who ran, a child who cried
A girl who heard, a voice that lied
The sun that burned a fiery red
The vision of an empty bed
The use of force, he was so tough
She’ll soon submit, she’s had enough
The march of fate, the broken will
Someone is lying very still
He has laughed and he has cried
He has fought and he has died
He’s just the same as all the rest
He’s not the worst, he’s not the best
And still this ceaseless murmuring
The babbling that I brook
The seas of faces, eyes upraised
The empty screen, the vacant look
A man in black on a snow white horse,
A pointless life has run its course,
The red rimmed eyes, the tears still run
As he fades into the setting sun

 

7. Us And Them  (The Dark Side of The Moon – 1973)

Black and blue
And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and down
And in the end it’s only round and round, and round
“Haven’t you heard it’s a battle of words?”
The poster bearer cried
“Listen, son,” said the man with the gun
“There’s room for you inside”

 

6. Fearless (Meddle – 1971)

Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd
Smiling
Merciless the magistrate turns ’round
Frowning
And who’s the fool who wears the crown?

 

5. Hey You  (The Wall – 1979)

Hey you
Out there on the road, always doing what you’re told
Can you help me?
Hey you
Out there beyond the wall, breaking bottles in the hall
Can you help me?
Hey you
Don’t tell me there’s no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall

 

4. Dogs  (Animals – 1977)

Gotta admit that I’m a little bit confused
Sometimes it seems to me as if I’m just being used
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise
If I don’t stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this maze
Deaf, dumb and blind, you just keep on pretending
That everyone’s expendable, and no one has a real friend
And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
Everything’s done under the sun
But you believe at heart everyone’s a killer

 

3. Echoes – (Meddle – 1971)

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you
And what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can?
And no one calls us to move on
And no one forces down our eyes
No one speaks and no one tries
No one flies around the sun

 

2. Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Pts. 1-9 (Wish You Were Here – 1975)

And we’ll bask in the shadow of yesterday’s triumph
And sail on the steel breeze
Come on, you boy child, you winner and loser
Come on, you miner for truth and delusion, and shine!

 

1. Wish You Were Here  (Wish You Were Here – 1975)

So, so you think you can tell, Heaven from Hell
Blue skies from pain, can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail, a smile from a veil
Do you think you can tell?
Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts
Hot ashes for trees, hot air for a cool breeze
Cold comfort for change, did you exchange
A walk-on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
