The late Roger ‘Syd’ Barrett, from Cambridge, was a co-founder of the 1960’s music group Pink Floyd and performed on lead guitar and vocals. He also composed many of their songs. He was responsible for inspiring an entire generation of musicians to develop their own indigenous brand of English rock music.

Syd was quintessentially English, penning idiosyncratic songs unique in style and tone.  He had a hugely attractive personality and with his good looks he was difficult to ignore. He was a quick-witted clown who kept family and friends laughing at his good-natured cheekiness throughout his younger years. Always interested in experimenting with music, he played the recorder, piano, ukulele, Jew’s harp and guitar all to a good standard.

I originally got into Syd because i thought he sounded like Robyn Hitchcock! I guess that parallel has been made many times, although i didn't know that 'back in the day'.

Been listening to the “Barrett” album a lot lately. It’s so lovely.

I love this song🎶🌹

Is the Bob Haris show mentoned anywhere on video?

Love it… his two solo albums are amazing considering the circumstances. Thankfully they came out at all. I find them unique and almost a strange farewell in a way. This is the last time you’ll hear from me sort of thing. Then he basically disappeared…

I had a phase of having a mid-morning nap to this album and always dozed off to this track. Lovely stuff.

I love it 🩷🫶🏻

One of Syd's most atmospheric songs.

An amazing lyricist. A pity that he stopped writing so soon.

My absolute favorite song by Syd. So melancholy.

Need to get the whole Madcap Laughs album on Spotify

Probably the best song of his solos

A wonderful song

A beautiful song.

. . .The man 'iconic' was the word written for!

I didn't think there were any official lyrics coz Syd didn't write down any of his words.

David Gilmour should also be the author with this song.....🤔
