Hard to say.

One of These Days is up there pretty high, just because it was pretty mindblowing when I saw it live on the Division Bell tour.

You know, despite popular belief, Pink Floyd did put out some quality music after the release of 'Piper at the Gates of Dawn'. Sure, it might not have been as well received, and maybe the departure of Syd Barrett let a creative and musical collapse. But people need to just give some of the later PF stuff a chance. There are a few unpolished gems in their later catalog.

You don't have to be tripping balls to enjoy good music.

Of those two, Astronomy Domine, hands down. One of the first Floyd songs I heard when I first got into them (bought Ummagumma when I was 13), really dug it back then.

I like the stuff post-Dark Side, but the absolute best Floyd stuff was with Syd Barrett.

Well popular belief would say that all of their stuff was better recieved after Syd barrett left the band. Dark Side of the Moon is still one of the biggest selling records of all time. You can't escape rock radio/classic rock radio without hearing something from most of their albums (Dark Side-Wish You Were Here-The Wall)following the deaprture of Syd. I would have to say that popular belief is the stuff after "Piper at the Gates of Dawn" is not only more polished but also much more recieved.

No Offense, but are you still high on the 4-way pane from 1968? :hmmm:

And to answer the question--Shine on you Crazy Diamond.

I think I posted this at the time, but a few months ago, Q Magazine asked PF fans to send in their Top 20 all-time favs as they were compiling a list of fan favorite songs for a special issue. Here's what I sent them:

Echoes
Shine On You Crazy Diamond
Dogs
Comfortably Numb
Saucerful Of Secrets
Great Gig In The Sky
Childhood's End
Have A Cigar
Astromomy Domine
Us And Them
Jugband Blues
The Fletcher Memorial Home
Flaming
Wot's, Uh The Deal
What Do You Want From Me?
Bike
Arnold Layne
Cymbaline
Welcome To The Machine
Pigs (Three Different Ones)

A damn good list, if I say so myself. I never did pick up that issue to see how it turned out...

There are a few unpolished gems in their later catalog.

The David Gilmour-era Floyd, prior to Waters leaving the band (so the period from Dark Side to The Wall) is BY FAR the most popular. Just look at the breakdown here - 99% of the songs listed appears on either Dark Side or Wish You Were Here.

In fact, I'm guessing that most modern PF fans don't even know about "Piper at the Gates of Dawn" which is, and always will be, the best PF album.

Exactly. Although I really think "Animals" Is the best PF album--IMO :)

I really like the live version of Careful With that Axe Eugene and Astronomy Domine from CD 1 of Umagumma.

but my favorites would have to be either Fearless or Echoes off of the album Meddle.

from syd-times, I'd say Bike or See Emily Play. Syd was good, but man, was the Floyd different back then.

I'd highly recommend seeking out some of the older bootlegs of the Floyd from the 60's...lots are available online for download if you know where to look.

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

Never took enough acid as a teenager to be a "Floyd" fan :shake:
But if i had to pick a song it's probably Comfortably Numb
