(mpeg video) Syd Barrett/Pink Floyd: 'Jugband Blues'



http://blogfiles.wfmu.org/KF/0509/movies/syd_barrett_pink.mpg

I found this through WFMU's blog: a 3:21 MPEG video of Syd Barrett with Pink Floyd performing 'Jugband Blues' from Saucerful of Secrets (1968), Syd's swansong with Floyd. Suffice it to say that I was enthralled...


It's awfully considerate of you to think of me here
And I'm much obliged to you for making it clear that I'm not here.
And I never knew the moon could be so big
And I never knew the moon could be so blue
And I'm grateful that you threw away my old shoes
And brought me here instead dressed in red
And I'm wondering who could be writing this song.

I don't care if the sun don't shine
And I don't care if nothing is mine
And I don't care if I'm nervous with you
I'll do my loving in the winter.

And the sea isn't green
And I love the queen
And what exactly is a dream
And what exactly is a joke.

Stills from Syd/Floyd videos
