Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd, 1975

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?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
And how we found
The same old fears
Wish you were here



Ma liste ne pourrait pas être complète sans une autre chanson de Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here. Un hommage du groupe a Syd Barrett. Une merveille de chanson, composée par Roger Waters et David Gilmour ensemble, paroles de Roger, et chantée par David, collaboration idéale. La chanson qui m’a fait apprendre la guitare, et celle qui me donne toujours des frissons quand je l’entends.

Bonus : D‘abord une
version unplugged to Wish You Were Here by David Gilmour (sur une guitare Taylor). Ensuite, une version de la même chanson, improvisée par Marillion durant un concert en 2003, fantastique public!
