The Great Gig In The Sky

The Great Gig In The Sky 4:47
     (written by Richard Wright)

(Jerry Driscoll:)
And I am not frightened of dying. Any time will do, I don't mind. Why should I be frightened of
dying? There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime.

(Unknown Female:)
I never said I was frightened of dying.

Vocals: Clare Torry

Rick's beautiful paean to the final curtain call: Death.

Roger the Hat: "It's one of those things which never goes out of fashion..."

Rick Wright: "[Clare Torry's performance] sends shivers down my spine. No words, just her wailing — but it's got something in it that's very seductive." [Schaffner 174]
