Recently at Stuck Between Stations, Roger Moore on Barack Obama’s attempt to shake his image as a closet Pink Floyd fanatic and the “Us and Them” mentality that has dogged Roger Waters. Meanwhile, Floyd’s inflatable pig floats out of control into a neighboring golf course.
Hillary Clinton noted that â€œthere is no clear evidence that Barack Obama is an America-hating Pink Floyd fanatic. As far as I know.â€ â€œBut let me tell you,â€ she continued, â€œduring my administration, weâ€™ll have no time for laser light shows, ponderous guitar solos, vague anti-capitalist lyrics, and 23-minute songs about albatrosses. From day one, weâ€™ll be rolling up our sleeves for the working people of America, pausing only for some Carly Simon, James Taylor and maybe a few aromatherapy candles.â€

Is there something wrong with Pink Floyd’s song “Us & Them”? It talks of people who are insane no matter where they are but if Obama is a Pink Floyd fanatic, fine. If he’s an America-hating Pink Floyd fanatic, so? If you go for him, fine and if not, fine. So what seems to be the problem? The question is: “which one is pink?”
Just look at that great gig in the sky over there….
Are you afraid of dying?
I love Pink Floyd & I get relaxed listening to their TDSOTM album and Animals after a hard day’s work from my home staging business . I love Pink Floyd & I love America!
