On The Run (Eclipse)

On The Run 6:00
     (written by Gilmour, Waters)


An entirely different piece of music from what ended up on the album, this version of On the Run has none of the made-up-in-the-studio synth tracks, but instead is a more traditional rock 'n' roll number, featuring a driving bluesy chord sequence, strong percussion, and a piano solo from Rick. A very good piece that would not sound out of place in a contemporary alternative rock club, this is one the few examples of two totally different Pink Floyd songs with the same title. This On the Run is over two minutes longer than the version which would eventually turn up on the album.
