Comfortably Numb

Pink Floyd, 1979

Hello?
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?

Come on, now
I hear you're feeling down
Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again

Relax
I'll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship's smoke on the horizon
You are the only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying

When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain you would not understand
This is not how I am

I have become comfortably numb
I have become comfortably numb

Okay
Just a little pinprick
There'll be no more
But you may feel a little sick

Can you stand up?
I do believe it's working good
That'll keep you going through the show
Come on, it's time to go

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship's smoke on the horizon
You are the only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying

When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown the dream is gone

I have become comfortably numb

Le meilleur solo de guitare jamais enregistré ! Le second solo de cette chanson est absolument phénoménal et une des multiples raisons pour laquelle je pense que David Gilmour est de loin un des meilleurs guitaristes de l’histoire du rock et probablement l’un des plus sous-estimés dans le monde de la musique et de la guitare. Il n’est effectivement ni le plus rapide, ni le plus technique, mais son sens de la mélodie, sa précision extraordinaire sur le manche, et ses inflexions sont du pur génie, qui, à mon avis, culmine sur cette chanson.

« Comfortably Numb », c’est aussi l’album « The Wall » et le film vu pour la première fois au petit cinéma Bel Air près de la fac à Mulhouse, avec toute la clique de copains de l’époque … Ça m’avait fait un effet extraordinaire !
