That's funny and just so right. I hear people praise PF, yet all I ever hear played is The Wall. Did they ever really have another hit? ;)

The Wall was an album as well as a song, the album had quite a few "hits". You have never heard of the album The Dark Side of the Moon??? It is I think their most famous and has more "hits".  Or how about the album Wish You Were Here, a few more "hits",  to name a few. Or their 24 minute song Echoes off of the Meddle album- a little hard to get commercials in so no air time. Maybe you've heard the songs but just don't know who made them?

After thinking about it, they probably do play other songs, they just all sound like The Wall to me. :D

How old are you?  for those of us in our fifties who grew up listening to real rock & roll Pink Floyd was very cutting edge.

If they were so "cutting edge", then how come I only ever hear one song played on most music stations?

Great music doesn't necessarily get played on the radio.  That's not an accurate measure.

Well, it's interesting that when I select classic rock on XM or DirecTV music stations, I hear most every other band's many hits. In PF's case it's almost always The Wall or as I like to call it The Bed. To me, the song is boring, especially the long version. I'm ready for a nap 5 minutes into it.

okay then, to paraphrase Denny, great music doesn't necessarily get played on mass media.

most people that drink beer in america think that bud and miller etc are the best beer there is. doesn't mean it's true. What is presented to us as consumers has less to do with quality and more to do with marketability. Many of PF's songs are not really great for marketability as they tend to be complex enough that it challenges the listener too much. The wall, if the political/social commentary aspect is ignored, is very approachable, if a little dolorus.

Q: How many Pink Floyd members does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: All 5, but Rick will refuse to help, Syd will be too stoned to do anything, Nick will just get in the way, Roger will end up doing the whole thing alone and Dave will call him a show off for it.

Having heard the music preferred by my children's generation, it has to do more with audience than the artist.  How about Brain Dead, Is there anybody out there?.  Here's a few albums they released: http://www.metrolyrics.com/pink-floyd-albums-list.html

Shamus and O'Brian are walking home from the pub one night ,quite loaded. and decide to short cut through thru the cemetary. The begin ready headstones, and seeing how old people lived. "Eighty four years old was Patrick O'Malley."
  "That's nothing. This  bloak was 226."

"Two hundred and twenty six!! What was his name?"

"Miles ToDublin"

they were drinking cause they got fired. Seems they had a good job putting up telephone poles and one day the boss said "Shamus, I need to know how tall those poles over there are"

So Shamus and O'Brian start work. Shamus says "okay, you stand the poles up and I'll climb up there and measure them"

"Why don't we just measure them on the ground?" askes O'Brian.

"you idiot," replies Shamus, "He asked how tall they were not how long!!"

Murphy lay in hospital covered in bandages head to foot - with just two little slits for his eyes.

'What happened to you?' asked Cassidy.

'I staggered out of the pub and a lorry hit me a glancing blow and knocked me through a plate glass window.'

'Begod,' said Cassidy. 'It's a good job you were wearing those bandages or you'd have been cut to ribbons!'

Two crews, one from Wyoming and one from Nebraska, were hired to replace telephone poles along the border.  The crews were given their orders and went to work digging the holes and putting up the poles. 

After a long day the foreman asked the Wyoming crew how many poles they had put in the ground.

"Fifteen" was the answer.

"Not bad, not bad at all," the foreman said.

Turning to the Nebraska crew he asked how many they had put in. "Four" was
the answer.

"Four?" the foreman yelled. "The others did fifteen, and you only did four?"

"Yes," replied the leader of the Nebraska group, "But go look at how much they
left sticking out of the ground."

Soon after our last child left home for college, my wife was resting next
to me on the couch with her head in my lap.

I carefully removed her glasses. "You know, honey," I said sweetly, "Without
your glasses you look like the same young woman I married."

"Honey," she replied, "Without my glasses, you look pretty good,
too!"

Doctor Bob had sex with one of his patients and felt guilty all day long. No matter how much he tried to forget about it, he couldn't. The guilt and sense of betrayal was overwhelming.

But every once in a while he'd hear an internal, reassuring voice that said: "Bob, don't worry about it. You aren't the first doctor to sleep with one of their patients and you won't be the last. And you're single. Just let it go...".

But invariably the other voice would bring him back to reality, whispering... "Bob, you're a vet..."
