Four brilliant men!
The song that I am referring to today is the first song on the album. It's the opening song. And by being the opening song, the standard is alredy set for the rest of the album. I think "Let there be more light" is wonderful. I play bass myself (just a hobby.. I'm not good!), and the song starts of with some bass playing, before the rest of the instruments sets in.

The song is written by Roger Waters, who became a leader after Syd had to go. Richard Wright is the first one to sing, while Roger Waters is whispering. David Gilmour sings the chorus. I love how their wonderful voices is so perfect in the same song. It's some of the things that I love about the band. Sometimes the song is sung by the same member all the way through, but when they 'split' it like this and get two different voices, it is bloody amazing! Nick rarely sings, but both Roger and Rick has the 'same' type of voices while David got this wonderful, heavenly voice which makes every dark song amazing. I am so amazed by their voices. AND this song, so here's a video of the song! Enjoy and have a lovely monday evening :0))
Love the french talking in the beginning. The person sounds so amazed!
Far, far, far away - way
People heard him say - say
I will find a way - way
There will come a day - day
Something will be done.
Then at last the mighty ship
Descending on a point of flame
Made contact with the human race
Now, now, now is the time - time
Time to be - be - be aware
Carter's father saw him there and
Knew the road revealed to him
The living soul of of Hereward the Wake
Oh, my, something in my eye - eye
Something in the sky - sky
Waiting there for me
The outer lock rolled slowly back
The service men were heard to sigh
For there revealed in glowing robes
Was Lucy in the sky
Oh - oh - did you ever know - know
Never ever will they
I cannot say
Something in his cosmic art
And glowing slightly from his toes
His psychic emanations flowed
