One of these days

After a request from my sister, I'm gonna write about this song today. The song is from the album 'Medle' which is the bands 6th album. The album is amazing, and so is this song. This song is an instrumental piece and it's written by all four members. Well, I said it was an instrumental piece, but actually, there is one line in this song that says: "One of these days I'm going to cut you into little pieces". This is Nick Masons voice, and it's really not often we can hear his voice, so that's just fantastic!!

The song was named "One of these days" because everything was going wrong in the studio the day they recorded this piece, in AIR-studios january 1971. Love the way they are making the best out of a shitty day, cause' it turned out to be a masterpiece! Yes, I know I'm calling most of their songs for masterpieces, but so what! I'm not lying.

From "Live at Pompeii"

I just got myself "A tree full of secrets", and that is 10 cd's with all this really rare stuff! It also contains two demos of the song, and also the mono version. Pretty amazing!!
The band performed this song on the dvd "Live at Pompeii", and then they retitled the song to "One of these days I'm going to cut you into little pieces". The song is also on the "Pulse" dvd.


The bass sounds are massive on this song, and as a 'bass-player' myself, the louder and clearer the bass sound is, the more I love the sonsg! The reason for the loud bass-sound is that there were used two bass guitars, one played by Roger Waters and the other played by David Gilmour. Not often David is 'slapping the bass', so that makes me love the song even more. It has all these rare things in it. Nick Mason on 'vocals' and David Gilmour on bass guitar.

The album
The music video is a bit special! I find it extremely psychedelic! Theres watches and boys dancing ballet.. Well, I would let ya'll make your own opinions, but I culdn't find the right video on youtube, so here's the version form "Live at Pompeii". Enjoy and have a faboulous evening!
