Oh, By The Way....Which One's Pink?

I've been listening to a lot of Pink Floyd lately. It seems to have a soothing effect that I can't get any other way. I don't have a lot of opportunity to listen at home, but my vehicle has a six CD changer and my drive to work averages forty minutes.


One way to or from is sufficient to listen to an entire album. Of course, it will require a round trip to complete The Wall, which is what I listened to on the way in today. The remaining four slots are populated by Meddle, Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, and Animals.

I'm not sure what dug this hole that can only be filled with Floyd -- maybe the barely organized chaos of my day to day needs to be countered by steady rhythms, haunting lyrics, and timeless guitar as only Pink can provide.

It took me weeks to get here and read this. What an enticing title. Yeah, my first Floyd album was Meddle. I can still hear the opening strains. God, I miss that album...It's on CD you say?
I wonder if it will quell the hypergraphia...or exacerbate it? Let you know if I get entranced.

Catatonia, Duran Duran, and the soundtrack to Wicked live in my CD changer.

I know of Wicked, but don't think I've heard the music. Which Duran Duran do you favor? "Seven and the Ragged Tiger" and "Rio" have some great tracks, but I also love the earlier stuff -- Girls on Film, Planet Earth....
