Pink Floyd

Pink-Floyd

The early Sixties, a group of talented teenagers (Roger ‘Syd’ Barrett, Roger Waters and David Gilmour) would be who would become the singers of a band and, later, they would get to success and fame. The result of this is Pink Floyd. Through important changes of people, through big musical phases, the band has won a place among the best like The Beatles, the Stones and Led Zeppelin.

In addition, there is a movie which tells the story of a rock singer “Pink” who is sitting in his hotel room in Los Angeles, burnt out from the music business and only able to perform on stage with the help of drugs. Based on the 1979 double album “The Wall” by Pink Floyd, the film begins in Pink’s childhood when he is crushed by the love of his mother. Several years later he is punished by the teachers at school because he is starting to write poems. Slowly he begins to build a wall around himself to be protected from the world outside. The film shows all this in massive and epic pictures until the very end where he smashes the wall and breaks free.

I like especially a song by Pink Floyd, The Wall:

  1. Pink Floyd is so good, actually, it is one of my favourite music bands, because of the lyrics of their songs, or just the music they made, the sound they had (and they still have, because music never dies).
