Another Brick In The Wall..

Have you heard the news yet that Syd Barrett..one of the original members of the band..Pink Floyd died today?

What I remember and loved most about Pink Floyd is the song.."Another Brick In the Wall"

I think the lyrics are right on.

Lyrics:

We don't need no education
We dont need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

We don't need no education
We dont need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

Some Research

Another Brick in the Wall" is the title of three songs to the same tune..on Pink Floyd's 1979 concept album, The Wall..subtitled "Part I".."Part II" (hit single), and "Part III", respectively, all of which were written by the controversial Pink Floyd frontman, Roger Waters.


"Another Brick in the Wall Part II" was released as a single..and provided the band's only number-one hit in the UK and the US. The song is a protest against rigid schooling in general and boarding schools in particular. It's been banned in several countries because of this. Guess it hit too close to home for some establishments.

Pink Floyd was nominated for a Grammy for Best Performance by a Rock Duo or Group. They lost to Bob Seger's "Against the Wind".

In 1980, the song was adopted as a protest anthem by black students during the "Elsie's River" uprising in South Africa, protesting against the racial propaganda and bias in the official curriculum. On May 2, it was banned by the government.

Let's not forget that The Wall's concept was largely a mishmash between Roger Water's wartime formative year nightmares combined with the bands' perception of Syd's drug and fame fueled increasingly antisocial and eratic behavior.

He was an iconoclast, no doubt. He influenced that band long after he stopped playing with them.

I am a huge Floyd fan, though by the time you get to The Wall, I'm starting to get tired of Waters' lyrical obsessions. I also think that you can not trust the credits for The Wall, because Waters was doing everything he could to keep from letting anyone else get credit; Bob Ezrin had to sue to get his name placed on The Trial. Another Brick in the Wall, Part II really should be credited Waters/Gilmour.

Great song, though.
