Today a very strange thing happened to me. I was doing some regular homework when i realized, hey Pink Floyd IS A REALLY GREAT BAND. I hadn't listened it for about three months almost like forgetting it is a part of me and one of my favorite bands ever. So I said Ok let's listen to Wish You Were Here one of my favorite albums and i put the cd in my home stereo (pinky isn't a band to listen in your computer) and i sat down and enjoyed, Three minutes later i was jumping all over the house in bliss after listening the first seconds of Shine on You Crazy Diamond and the great keyboards of Welcome to the Machine and the sparse but beautiful arrangements of Wish You Were Here. But what really cracked me up was the second part of crazy diamond in which i was "crying in desperation" because i was listening to some of the most fantastic combination of chords i had ever listened. I just kept praising the keyboards especially today i was praising the keyboards. Then i go upstairs and my mom comes telling me that Richard Wright just died today. It was a great blow for me. This great man should be remembered for making one of the most beautiful music on earth and for being a genius. How will i ever forget the piano on Pow R. Toc H., songs such as Remember a Day and See-Saw, songs that liked me so much, in pompeii the crazyness of A Saucerful of Secretsthe murky dark piano of Sysyphus, the beautiful pieces of Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast and Summer '68 that made me cry so many times, the simple Stay that i enjoyed so much, ohhh and Dark Side of the Moon how could i ever forget The Great Gig in the Sky which I think is the proper song to play for him in this moment. THIS SONG is for you Richard. Oh my god...=[ and the intro for Sheep is the best intro i've ever heard in my life i swear....god so many songs...this man influenced my life in so many ways i didn't know of. Now i believe in coincidences. Not everything happens in cause-effect, but some things happen because they do. It is important to believe in invisible things. Life is very complex and multifaceted and it would be foolish to only believe in what you see. This man made music that made me happy and that is priceless. I have nothing more to say although i wish i could pay a better homage than a simple blog. But anyways... everyone does what they can... Rick R.I.P.
