OK - there are many favorite songs we all have - but then there are isolated moments (could be a riff, solo, intro, etc.) of songs that hit us on a deep, emotional soul level but that AREN'T necessary from our favorite song(s).

What's your favorite moment from a song that isn't even one of your top favorite songs of all time?

I'll go first:

I love Floyd, I really do. No band has made better or more immersive concept albums that I know inside and out, start to finish.
But if I were to make a list of my top individual favorite songs or whatever, they wouldn't actually have a place on it.
HOWEVER, the first solo on Comfortably Numb just hits me on a deep level.
Check it out at 2 minutes and 4 seconds in:

I would add that Floyds Great Gig In The Sky, with Clare Torry just doing her thing without words is moving.. What a way to end the album..

TOTALLY agree - she crushed those vocals. One of the best vocal performances ever in rock.
So what's your moment then Slipn?

If it was about a moment in the song Great Gig In The Sky.. Maybe it has to do with the song being about passing away and I didn't know that about the song at first and

it took along time to finally figure out it was about death..

To me it was a poetic way of putting that subject to a song.. No words.. Just emotional expression by the singer.
