Pink Floyd – All You Touch And All You See Is All Your …

Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd, the British music group, reached international popularity with their progressive and psychedelic songs. Known for their use of philosophical lyrics, sonic experimenting, and sophisticated live shows, they are one of the most commercial and influential bands in the history of pop music.

Established in the mid sixties, the group initially comprised of students

  • Roger Waters,
  • Syd Barrett, 
  • Nick Mason, 
  • Roger Waters,
  • Richard Wright.

They first became popular whilst performing in London’s underground music scene during the late sixties, and under Barrett’s creative leadership they launched two top chart climbing singles and a successful debut album. Gilmour joined as a fifth band member in Dec 1967, and Barrett left the band in April 1968 due to his health deteriorating at a rapid pace. After Barrett’s leaving the band, Waters took over as the band’s lyrics writer and by the mid-seventies, their main songwriter, creating the original concepts behind the master pieces –

  • The Dark Side of the Moon (1973),
  • Wish You Were Here (1975), 
  • Animals (1977), 
  • The Wall(1979), 
  • The Final Cut (1983).

Long you live and high you fly. And smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry. And all you touch and all you see. Is all your life will ever be. 

Since the  launch of ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ in 1973, it has become one of the best-selling tracks of all-time and remained on Billboard’s Top 200 for 741 weeks. In March this year, they celebrated the 40th Anniversary of this album.

Now we know that a lot of you might not know or appreciate Pink Floyd’s master pieces but for what it’s worth, we thought we will start this week off by reminiscing about the old days. Let’s face it, with a name like that, they deserve at least a mention!
