    Now that I see Traffic mentioned, Empty Pages. just the beat of that song alone is awesome.

    Steve Winwood is beautiful.

    The first notes of one of their instrumentals, the "John Barleycorn Must Die" album opener 'Glad,' get me going every time.

    And the verse from 'Freedom Rider' that goes "When lightning strikes you to the bone, you turn around, you're on your own. By the time you hear that siren sound, then your soul is in the lost and found FOREVER. Forever!!!" always makes me crack a smile. Every. Time.

    Also have to admit that the ''oooh-aaahhhh, oooh-aaahhhh'' one hears after the beginning verse of "Dear Mr. Fantasy" gives me a glowing feeling.

    Must say it is kinda fun recalling all these great songs!

    I agree, FWIW. I remember when I got my HOTE doc and concert DVD and heard Randy hit and hold that note at 4:21 in your video...well, it raised the hairs on my neck! Such a great moment. And yes, the smile on Glenn's face as he listens to the cheers from the crowd is worth a thousand words.

    It's a perfect occupation for me.

    Glenn's singing in "Doolin' Dalton"

    Like graveyards filled with tombstones, waitin' for the names"

    A couple from On The Border:

    The bridge in the title track:

    "Never mind your name
    Just give us your number
    Never mind your face
    Just show us your card
    And we wanna know
    Whose wing are you under?
    You better step to the right
    Or we can make it hard"

    As well as Glenn's, "Hmm, you in some trouble, boy."

    Don's sultry sexy lead vocal in "You Never Cry Like a Lover."

    "We know where you've be-e-n"!

    I like the guitar solo in "You Never Cry...". The tone sounds like Felder? "Is it true?" (also a good song)

    Have you heard the demo/early mix? Waters sings the first bit, that was fortunately (for the listener) taken by Gilmour in the final cut.

    Yup. I read Gilmour say in an article that he couldn't physically do it.. There's another demo that has twice as many words in the same amount of time, when it was still called "You Gotta Be Crazy"

    I have always enjoyed that particular part of that song too Nola.
