The Pink Floyd Top 50

Since I changed focus and started highlighting albums instead of songs, I haven’t been doing the song countdowns which originally peppered this blog. I thought I could satisfy my list-making cravings by adding a Top 50 songs list at the conclusion of each album Retro Review series. So here is my list of Pink Floyd’s Top 50 songs.

Thanks to everyone for tuning into this series. It’s been a blast, as Pink Floyd have been one of my favorite artists for years upon years. I hope to kick off another series in a few weeks. In the meantime, you can always e-mail me at or follow me on Twitter @JimBeviglia. I also plan to start linking to my articles on American Songwriter when they arrive online, so those of you can enjoy my writing can see it applied to reviews on current music or features on older songs and albums. And, of course, the links below are to my books and e-books. Talk to you all soon.
