Apropos video: Pink Floyd, “Sorrow”

This mournful Pink Floyd tune is very much apropos current events. I’ve always had a soft spot for David Gilmour’s lead guitar playing — while he would never win a shredding contest with the likes of Malmsteen or Steve Vai, his silvery sound simply oozes emotion without ever becoming sentimental. 9Now of you want both the shredding and the feeling, Dream Theater’s John Petrucci is your man.)

Studio version with some psychedelic  imagery:

Live version from “Pulse”: David’s vocals sound tired, but his lead playing on the outro has some neat twists

… awakes to a morning, with no reason for waking…

… and silence that speaks so much louder than words, of promises broken…
