Song Lyric Sunday: In A Word – ‘Echoes’

It’s a very broad category for Song Lyric Sunday this week – songs with one-word titles. Anyway, this is the one that came to my mind first – one of my favourite Pink Floyd sonic landscapes. The piece was, it seems, put together from various, previously unconnected, studio noodlings. Much like the lyrics, by the…

Song Lyric Sunday: D or J – ‘Julia Dream’

Jim’s third and final letter-themed Song Lyric Sunday prompt is D or J. You can have both if you like. ‘Julia Dream’ was originally the B-side of the 1968 single ‘It Would Be So Nice’ – a song which, I have to confess, passed me by completely. Which must mean that I first heard this…

Song Lyric Sunday: Animal – ‘Dogs of War’

Jim has set the theme of ‘Animal’ for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday challenge. I think we’re overdue another dose of Pink Floyd in this thread, so here’s ‘Dogs of War, originally released on the ‘A Momentary Lapse of Reason’ album. Dogs of war and men of hate With no cause, we don’t discriminate Discovery…
