All my life i have wanted to perform this song.

I used to live in a flat in central London with a roof garden that you accessed via a window. When ever there were thunder storms i used to turn up my stereo and blast this song singing inthe rain and thunder & lightening. I found it exhilirating.

Reini has really faithfully recreated this piece of music written originally by Richard Wright of Pink Floyd and sung by Claire Torrey. His work here is fantastic i cannpt rave enough about how brilliant Reini is.

The legend has it that Richard had this piece but didn't think it would work as a Floyd tune. He was working with Claire Torrey on DSOFTM when he showed her the song. The producer Tiff Thomas said there were possibilities with this song. Richard then asked her to go in and riff on the song. Maybe come up with some lyrics. Well Claire went in and produced one of the most captivating vocals that describes everything without a single word thus making this song one of the best pieces ever written. Its a brilliant twist in a Phenomenal album that quite frankly wouldn't be as great as it is without this song.

Its up to you to interperate this song as to what you think it means. I have my own view but it would be interesting to hear yours.

Reini once again thank you so much for doing this. The day it arrived in my in box was quite frankly a tough day and this song and your request changed it.

Music production and everything else - Reini the master Craftsman
Vocals - Nadie
Male Irish Voice - My friend Colin Phelps aka the Colster

I hope you enjoy it as much as i did.

...one of the most beautiful songs in the entire history of music (in my opinion)...
my pc speakers blushed and had a nervous breakdown for their incapability of rendering this fantastic cover as it deserved...
i haven't really ever wondered about the meaning of this song, to be honest. but i think it doesn't necessarily have to have one: like all great art, it speaks a different language than that created by the brain; it's the language of emotions, and to me there's no real definition of what an emotion is... but the emotion itself...

The most heart-wrenching song of all time. A cry from the deep primordial source of all life. I got chills when I saw this posted before I even listened. You're very brave.

Fine performances all around. Could you imagine an album distributed today that took as many chances as Dark Side of the Moon? (I can't) It's fractal beauty incarnate and you've definitely done it justice. I've only seen it done live, once, by the Aussie Pink Floyd tribute band and it raised the hair on the back of my neck.

(Mix-wise, I could use a little more "depth of field"...some 'verb and expansion...just a bit more fullness...other than that, thank you for taking on this tune! Really nice surprise today.)

This summer i saw a Pink Floyd cover band doing this song and there was 3 singers doing it, maybe because it is too difficult for 1 person alone, i do like this vocal and i think it is a good try doing an almost impossible cover, i'd say your almost there smiley
very good job both smiley
I think of dark side of the moon as one of the best albums ever made.

Thank you everyone and especially Reini for all your comments.

I saw Pink Floyd live at Earls Court in 1994 and they had 3 singers do this song too.

This is a tough one to do but i loved every second of it.

Thanks for listening and leaving comments i really appreciate it

And Reini your are Mr Floyd from now on smiley

better than you would have expected, huh? i mean, how do you live up to this one, and yet, there are the soaring vocals and the more than serviceable production, and i mean that as high praise, someone's little studio recreating a modern musical masterpiece, and doing it convincingly!!! someone is squeezing a lot out of their little studio!!!
