    Great list! Love the Floyd! I would’ve picked “Shine On” for #1 though. Dogs…! Awesome! One of the Les Claypool’s groups does an amazing full album cover of Animals. I would suggest it to any Floyd fan.

    I know most people will disagree, but my favorite is, “On the Turning Away.”

    Truly, On the Turning Away and Brain Damage should head this list. IMHO Brilliant in their simplicity, not that the complexity of other songs detracts from their brilliance. Sometimes simplicity works exceedingly well, as in these two compositions.
