  • Pink Floyd was one of the first bands to use instrumental freak-out passages incorporating feedback, electronic screeches, sounds created by loud amplification, reverb, and unusual means to create eerie sounds. In the mid-60s they began to incorporate light shows into their concerts. Syd Barrett (lead singer and guitarist) began to compose songs that combined unusual psychedelic arrangements with melodies and lyrics that often viewed the world from a child's perspective of emotion and wonder. "Another Brick in the Wall" became a number one song on both sides of the Atlantic.

 

ANOTHER BRICK IN
THE WALL

By
Pink Floyd



Lyrics:

When we grew up and went to school
There were certain teachers
Who would hurt the children in any way they could
By pouring their derision
Upon anything we did
Exposing every weakness
However carefully hidden by the kids

We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave the kids alone
Hey, teachers, leave us kids alone
All in all it's just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall
