In honor of Roger Waters touring The Wall (can't wait for November!) and because I have a lot on my mind yet nothing to say, here are the typical elements of a Pink Floyd song (found somewhere on the Web, I honestly can't recall where).

The average Pink Floyd song contains these elements:

  • People talking at the beginning
  • Birds tweeting
  • People talking at a party
  • Cash registers
  • Heartbeats
  • Footsteps
  • Cars driving by
  • A guitar riff
  • A bunch Of fucking annoying cymbals
  • Cash
  • 4 minutes of silence
  • Scottish accents
  • Spanish accents
  • Synthesizers
  • People yelling
  • Guitar solo
  • A teacher telling children to eat their meat
  • Aforementioned teacher telling children they can't have pudding if they don't eat their meat
  • Various animal sounds
  • Satanic chanting
  • Something about World War II
  • Clocks ticking
  • Saxophone solo
  • Howling woman
  • Vocal delays
  • A few more minutes of silence
  • A helicopter
  • The second verse
  • Guitar solo
  • Special guest vocalist Stephen Hawking
  • Organ sustain
  • Bicycle bells
  • Wailing
  • Crazy guy laughing
  • Copious lap steel guitar parts
  • Screaming
  • Guitar related noise
  • Wind
  • Acid
  • Vomiting
  • Bloat
  • Guitar solo
  • "Congratulations, you've just discovered the secret message. Please send your answer to old Pink, care of the funny farm. Chalfont."
  • Guitar solo
  • Fadeout/More people talking
  • Quacking ducks
  • Screeching pterodactyls

Sounds accurate to me!
