Line(s) of the Day #WishYouWereHere

Wish you were Here Pink Floyd

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We’re just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl

Taken from the song Wish You Were Here (1975), from Pink Floyd’s album of the same name. I’m a huge fan of the English band and have quoted their songs Comfortably Numb, Learning to Fly¬†and Time, as well as including them in Gr8at Debut Albums and Non-Festive UK Number Ones. I was also able to see Their Mortal Remains, their exhibition at the V&A.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

Taken from the album title track Mr Tamborine Man by The Byrds (1965), a cover from a Bob Dylan original. Quite surprisingly, it was actually released the same year as Dylan’s, and both were hugely successful. You can find this and other memorable cover songs here and my favourite Dylan songs here and here.
