I bet you a dollar you've heard it. Go to the piano, hold down the sustaining pedal, and play these notes, mezzo-forte, at about mm=120: Bb3-F4-G3-E4 [let them ring for a bit]. Then tell me you never heard that iconic riff before!

Then listen to this, the opening track, until at least 3:40.

Before I learned them I liked listening to them, but after learning them I find them repetitive and boring.

Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" was released in September of 1975, which is almost half a century ago. shocked

1) I never listen to any radio broadcast where such music might have been played.
2) A CD containing that music is not in my collection.
3) If it were background music in a mall or at my friendly dentist's, I would have had to be aware of it to recognize it; I turn all that music off!
4) If I can't remember it ever having been subliminally fed to me in context 3), then I can't knowingly say that I have ever heard it.
5) To admit that I have heard it, I would have to recognize it upon hearing it; I don't.

Case proven?

Regards,

Negative. Did you do my test? Bb-F-G-E? Dude you have heard that, unless you died before 1975.

Lest you think that Bruce is the only one in the universe who hasn't heard it, I haven't heard it either. smile Really! And yes, I listened to the riff as directed, but no bells rang. A bit hazy about what I listened to in 1975 but I do recall accidentally hearing a few Abba songs in 1976 because all the 10-year-olds in the class I was teaching that year were besotted with them.

Aagh! I had heard that riff before I ever heard it. Bb below middle C, F above middle C, G below middle C, E above middle C. Pedal down, let it ring. This is music for the ages, a bit like ABBA actually.

Nope, no bells rang with me either, not even with an obscure grey cell which has been hibernating since 1975.

And in that year, I was exposed - mostly against my will - to daily Top 10 (or Top 100, depending on the DJ on BBC Radio 1)......

They’ve heard it but it’s important for them to pretend they haven’t 😉 Leave them alone.

I am with Bruce, Currawong, and bennevis. I have positively definitely NEVER heard this music before. Since I never listen to this type of music, I do not see any reason why I should have heard it. No pretence!!

In and around 1975 I was being introduced to Wagner's "Ring" at English National Opera. Unforgettable!

Ditto for me on all counts. I stopped "intentionally" listening to this type of music in the early 1970s when I was immersed in studying and performing classical music. In late 1990s I was involuntarily exposed to a bunch of new stuff by my kids. My son in particular developed a passion for the alternative rock group, Smashing Pumpkins which was into gothic rock, heavy metal, progressive rock and electronica. (Pink Floyd seems quite tame by comparison.) The only thing that got me through those years was the fact that he also loved playing the Baritone Horn in his high school concert band. grin

CyberGene wins this one. I shall leave you all alone. But I want you to play this at my funeral so that I can have the last laugh.

Smashing Pumpkins and Pink Floyd are both exceptional musical groups that have brought joy and musical transcendence to millions.

You should be proud of your son for his exceptional taste!

At the same time, I admire your preference for the old school stuff.

As for me, my favorite musical experience of all time was listening to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon with the lights out, 4' speakers moved to the left and right of my head, just laying in the blackness listening to the album from reel to reel, twice, doing nothing but listen.

My absolute #1 musical experience in this lifetime, be happy to have something exceed it. There was a Mahler #2 rehearsal that came close and a Red Rocks concert too, but nah.

Anyways. Pink Floyd is my favorite of all time. Probably a generational thing we are bantering right now.

Actually he loved Smashing Pumpkins so much he attended at least 10 of their concerts over the years. The band members began to recognize him and appreciated his loyalty. smile

For me, old school included ALL pop music written before 1968 as well as classical. There was just a point where I lost interest in the new stuff. Heck - I even played and sang country western music in a bar in Central City CO back in the mid 60s as a summer job. I was terrible.

The Bach B Minor Mass and the Brahms Requiem do the same thing for me. ha
