The blues can drive a person to all sorts of things â€“ drink, gambling, violence, and even the making of heathen rock â€˜nâ€™ roll. At the bottom of this aching impulse may be a desire to have nothing at all on our minds, some repose where we can squeeze some peace from whatâ€™s in our fruit basket. But how the hell do you accomplish that when even the lemons never forget?
Our Why Pink Floyd? selection this week comes from Wish You Were Here, a grinning indictment of the flies that circle once success comes. Hats off to Mr. Roy Harper for his lead vocal turn. Roger is wrong, he wouldnâ€™t have sung it nearly as well.
If you experience playback problems, pop over to the 8tracks mix page and it should play fine.
