Pink Floyd – "Wish You Were Here"

from 79.00

An achingly-beautiful song of loss and self-assessment, “Wish You Were Here” is Pink Floyd at their finest. Opening with a spacious, textured soundscape, the tone shifts suddenly, introducing the song’s now-iconic guitar theme and the warm rasp of David Gilmour’s lead vocal.

As with most of its namesake album, “Wish You Were Here” centers on Pink Floyd co-founder Syd Barrett, whose mental breakdown led to his departure from the group in 1968. Barrett’s disintegration proved especially haunting to bassist/vocalist Roger Waters, whose lyrics repeatedly explored the subject, climaxing with 1979’s The Wall.

Filled with a plaintive, open-hearted longing, “Wish You Were Here” marries Pink Floyd’s technical wizardry to the humanity which underpins their best work. The result is a kind of alchemy: the transformation of raw emotional energy into a timeless cultural touchstone.
