Day 230 | See Emily Play

See Emily Play.  This Pink Floyd cover is my favorite song from the all-cover album, Pin Ups.  It comes from the old Syd Barrett version of Pink Floyd. This is not the last time Bowie honored Barrett—his very last live performance, posted earlier in this series, was with Dave Gilmore performing “Arnold Layne.”  For me, and I’m guessing a lot of other casual Pink Floyd fans who grew up in the 80s,  I don’t even associate these songs with the band.  I don’t recall ever hearing “Arnold Layne” before finding the Bowie/Gilmore collaboration, and it was years after listening to Pin Ups that I heard the original version of “See Emily Play.”
