    Not *the* saddest - but it always stabs me in the heart.

    That's them, the Nina Simone version is well weird (and sad) funnily enough I cant stop singing it.

    Oh and cheers for posting it.

  4. A song with propensity to penetrate the soul of mortal man. An absolute masterpiece and beautiful beyond the chosen word and I have not listened to this composition for five long years. Voted by numerous groups as the greatest build in classical music and who am I too argue:

    Adagio: With the Zagreb philomonic orchestra:



    Bellismo Hauser Bellisimo !

    It is indeed an outstanding piece of music, used in many films I’m sure but to devastating effect in Manchester by the sea

    Wow Mr Bob, that, whilst very good, is very sombre music, not perhaps sad which is why I say sombre - or deep even. It's still playing as I type.
     
  7. Take it from the 4.40 mark and the build is immense. A very emotional piece.

    The last Floyd album before Roger Waters left the band. Constant squabbling between him and the rest of the band over the direction the band was taking.

    I loved Syd Barrett's early influence on Floyd and Roger Waters influence over the years has been the best for me. However I love the hazy lazy mellow guitar playing and influence of Dave gilmour too. But this album is heavy dark and sad.

    Gilmour constantly at Loggerheads with Waters over Rodger's doom and gloom was indeed the final cut.
