Two lost souls swimming in a fishbowl . . . (Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here)
As me said, wifey & meself would be having a little tribute to the recently departed Richard Wright by playing the entire Floyd discography this weekend.
Me would like to invite the rest of you to follow suit. Those who don't own any Floyd &/or are not familiar with the works of this great British band, me proudly presents to you what me considers its all time masterpiece - Wish You Were Here (1975).

Trust me on this, this is one super chill out album which is perfect to enjoy a quiet drink to & fer some self-indulgent navel gazing . . . and even better fer nursing a hangover.
Compelling, beautiful & utterly tragic all at the same time. Me gets goosebumps every single fooking time me listens to this . . . honest.
ps: A little trivia - Pink Floyd take their name form two Delta Bluesmen - Pink Henderson & Floyd Council. So there, now you know.
pps: Look forward to reading yer comments on this absolute classic of an album. Here's to a Floyd weekend!
