Pink Floyd Live: Wish You Were Here


Perhaps one of the greatest live rock band ever sings one of my favorite songs (from their Pulse tour). The video clip doesn't show the entire song, but it does cover the powerful opening verses:

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
a walk on part in the war
for a lead role in a cage?

Great... now this song will be stuck in my head for the next few days. :)
