THE BEST Pink Floyd

Roger Waters: Mother

Roger Waters: Mother

Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters misses performing live with his bandmates, so he assembled them remotely for a “work from home” performance of the classic track Mother from the 1980 album The Wall. We still hope that he and Dave Gilmour will mend fences and play together someday.

Wish You Were Here on Ukulele

Wish You Were Here on Ukulele

During an appearance at Paste Magazine’s NYC studio, the talented Jake Shimabukuro performed a soulful rendition of Pink Floyd’s classic, eking crazy amounts of emotion out of his little ukulele. While there he also played Bohemian Rhapsody, his original When The Masks Come Down, and Hawaiian folk song Wai’ alae.

The Simpsons: Comfortably Numb

The Simpsons: Comfortably Numb

Caio Rossi of R3DUX Studios cut together this great mashup of clips from The Simpsons, set to Pink Floyd’s 1979 classic Comfortably Numb. The Portuguese subtitles somehow make it feel even more like a depressing foreign film. His Simpsons x Futurama version of the band’s Time is also worth a watch.

Fans of Pink Floyd will recognize the profoundly depressing lyrics on this print from Todd Alcott Graphics. It features the words from Comfortably Numb, cleverly worked into the layout for a 1960s-style magazine advertisement for pain relief pills. The print is available in a variety of sizes. Check out the artist’s shop for more.

Comfortably Numb: Piano Cover

Comfortably Numb: Piano Cover

We know Melbourne, Australia pianist Josh Cohen from his fantastic Radiohead and David Bowie piano covers. His emotional cover of Pink Floyd’s 1979 classic is just as captivating, and will have you feeling anything but numb.

The Main Squeeze: Have a Cigar

The Main Squeeze: Have a Cigar

A stellar cover of Pink Floyd’s Have a Cigar, with fantastic guitar work by Max Newman, smooth and soulful vocals by Corey Frey, and great keys and rhythms by Smiley, Rob Skywalker, and Reuben Gingrich of The Main Squeeze. Their Allman Bros. ain’t too shabby either.

Wish You Were Here Harpejji

Wish You Were Here Harpejji

Mathieu Terrade performs a wonderful cover of Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here on a pair of unusual string instruments, the Marcodi Harpejji G16 and K24. His performances of Bohemian Rhapsody and While My Guitar Gently Weeps are worth a listen too.

Pink Floyd: Korean Style

Pink Floyd: Korean Style

Musician Luna Lee rocks out another awesome cover version on her classic Korean string instrument, this time taking on Pink Floyd’s 1979 classic Another Brick in the Wall. While Lee is from the South, the tune seems especially apropos of North Korea’s confomist society.

Wish You Were Here in Jerusalem

Wish You Were Here in Jerusalem

Brothers Aryeh and Gil Gat turn in an excellent cover version of Pink Floyd’s 1975 classic on the streets of Jerusalem. If this isn’t hard proof that you can’t judge a book by its cover, we don’t know what is. More here.

David Gilmour: Here, There…

David Gilmour: Here, There…

Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour covered The Beatles’ Here, There and Everywhere for the bonus compilation CD of Mojo magazine’s October issue. Gilmour also contributed to five other tracks in the compilation.

RGYDK: 8-Bit Albums

RGYDK: 8-Bit Albums

Chiptuner RGYDK has not just created 8-bit covers of a few tunes here and there, he’s replicated entire albums by Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Nirvana and even Jethro Tull. Sadly, the lawyers yanked down his Led Zeppelin album.

Darkside: Deluxe CD

Mariachi Pink Floyd

Mariachi Pink Floyd

The Internet is a strange, strange place. Take, for example, this clip of Mariachi Cabos taking on Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall. They don’t need no education, but could use a new cameraman.
