Partly inspired by a thread over in Music, and partly by the recent release of Live on Pompeii (despite the horrid "director's cut"). Hopefully we've got enough PF fans to make this worthwhile.

I didn't want to do 128, so I had to cut it down to 64. This meant cutting most of the Syd Barrett stuff (which I like but I know a lot of people don't), most of the instrumentals and shorter songs, songs that seemed out of place in the PF canon (San Tropez, Seamus) and finally songs I think are below par or not very significant (Not Now John, The Nile Song, etc). If I cut one of your favorites, well... sorry.

Without further ado, let's get started!

Round 1, Bracket 1:
"A Pillow of Winds" (Meddle)
vs.
"A Saucerful of Secrets" (A Saucerful of Secrets)

Round 1, Bracket 2:
"Another Brick in the Wall, Part 1" (The Wall)
vs.
"Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2" (including "Happiest Days of Our Lives") (The Wall)


These brackets will run until Monday morning.

This is a pretty cozy tournament, which is cool by me. I was thinking of doing a Dylan song tourney. You guys up for it? Posted Image

Sorry, Angelo; I don't know much Dylan other than his most well-known tunes.
