With an extensive music collection (and with the ability to sample music easily on the Net), I’ve managed to have a select few songs which I consider my top favorites. I’ve already stated that "Dirty Epic" (by Underworld) is one of my all time favorites, but that song is part of the electronic genre. Looking more at the rock scene, more specifically the innovators of the genre, I found another of my all time favorite songs. The song was made by Pink Floyd in the 1970s (before I was born, although it was in the same decade). The song is "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", found on the Wish You Were Here album.
The CD version of the album has the song divided in two tracks and it is a wonderful masterpiece to listen to. Melodic movements, guitar, synthesizer and great vocals give it a unique character, verging on the psychedelic, which is addictive to listen to. Soothing, beautiful and magical are words that can me used to describe it and everyone should listen to it at least once in their lifetime.
