  1. This era, in advance of digital techology, was all about the imagination. This is such a great film and the music, once so familiar to me, comes back as newer than new, stranger than strange. Totally inspiring. Thank you for posting.

  2. I vow to listen to this perfection 111 times this summer, that I might remember the lesson of giving.

  3. "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun"

    Little by little the night turns around
    Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
    Lotus's lean on each other in yearning
    Over the hills a swallow is resting
    Set the controls for the heart of the sun

    Over the mountain watching the watcher
    Breaking the darkness, waking the grapevine
    Knowledge of love is knowledge of shadow
    Love is the shadow that ripens the wine

    Set the controls for the heart of the sun
    The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun

    Witness the man who waves at the wall
    Making the shape of his question to Heaven
    Whether the sun will fall in the evening
    Will he remember the lesson of giving?

    Set the controls for the heart of the sun
    The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun

  4. Do you wonder what the ghosts of the people of Pompeii thought of this band of musicians playing in their ancient amphitheater?

  5. This is something.. Son.. Solar.. Sun keeps we alive but also kill someday.. 🙄😱🙄😏💀💥✡️✝️!!!!…

  6. Wow blatant paganism and I used to be so blissfully ignorant in my younger years. The butterfly the axe, the sun god, Janus and Pan a bit of everything Nice one Pink Floyd.. And, a Great song.I visited Pompey but I couldn't bring myself to look at those poor souls reaping the results as an ensample for us all..https://youtu.be/uuT_4XElXOU

  7. Saw Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets earlier this year, and they played this! It was so awesome.
