260) Pink Floyd — “If”
From ‘70’s Atom Heart Mother (see #38). Paul Matt’s writes regarding Roger Waters’s “If” that:
[I]t is a step in the direction of familiar future Waters issues, such as the madness expressed on Dark Side of the Moon. Some feel the “spaces between friends” line is a reference to the gap in the friendship of the band with Syd Barrett . . . .”https://somethingelsereviews.com/2020/03/30/pink-floyd-atom-heart-mother/
Well, at least it doesn’t feature bacon frying in the pan.
“If I were asleep, I could dream. If I were afraid, I could hide. If I go insane, please don’t put your wires in my brain. If I were the moon, I’d be cool.
If I were a rule, I would bend. If I were a good man, I’d understand the spaces between friends.”
