It's Syd Barrett's birthday.
He had a great artistic influence on the world.

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze.

Come on you target for faraway laughter,
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
Rode on the steel breeze.

Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

Coincidentally, I just bought Wish You Were Here on vinyl at a thrift store.

At least post something from Piper.

Wish You Were Here (the song) is dedicated to him but I don't know about the album.

Fun fact; I think the album Wish You Were Here is their best album from what I've heard of them.

I honestly don't like Dark Side Of The Moon, The Wall is good, but has some weak tracks; Meddle, 2 weak tracks; Animals, good but doesn't have as much of a punch as Wish You Were Here; Ummgumma (live), start of Saucerful of Secrets is just ugh; Wish You Were Here however is pretty much a perfect album from them.

I'm pretty sure Shine On You Crazy Diamond is too.

I doubt Have A Cigar and Welcome to the Machine have much to do with Syd Barrett, but the album as a whole is largely dedicated to him.
