This is for people who have always wanted to listen (or download) Shine On You Crazy Diamond in full. All nine parts of Shine On You Crazy Diamond, which is one of the greatest pieces of music made. This composition was a tribute to former band member, Syd Barrett. Written and performed by Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Richard Wright. From the album "Wish You Were Here". Lyrics: (Parts I-V) 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! (Parts VI-IX) Nobody knows where you are, how near or how far. Shine on you crazy diamond. Pile on many more layers and I'll be joining you there. Shine on you crazy diamond. And we'll bask in the shadow of yesterday's triumph, sail on the steel breeze. Come on you boy child, you winner and loser, come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine.

In my opinion the most fasinating and most unbreakable sound of music ever recorded en made by those beautiful band called PINK FLOYD
Bartje Bartmans
More than 14 million views, minus the 1 million times I listened to it.

Chose to listen to this instead of watching porn. Best decision I made all day
Nikola Babic
this is on level with compositions by beethoven, mozart, bach...

I'm 13 and have been telling other kids to listen to Pink Floyd because it's so amazing!!
James Lenin
Man my neighbours listen to some great music... whether they like it or not...
Matthew Howard
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Pink Floyd.

This song makes the planets move
Juan Corbo
The Lord used Mozart's hands to play piano, and David Gilmore"s hands to play guitar.
MysteryHardRocker
Gilmour is so... Simple and humble. He doesn't throw a lot of notes into you and acknowledges that the silence in a solo has the same importance as the notes itself. He just talks through them. He doesn't even leave the five notes from the Gm pentatonic that often, and when he does is simple natural C major. Yet, using that few notes, he is able to express such emotion and feeling! It's just otherworldly. Love that guy.
KodredCud
This song is one of those songs that makes you think "Man, it can't get better than this part right here" and proves you wrong like 48 times

My mum passed away recently and she loved Pink Floyd. Wish she was here, she's at the great gig in the sky on the dark side of the moon shining on like a crazy diamond. : )

Your musical taste may ebb and flow from classical, to thrash, to metal, punk, rock, funk..... but you always come back to this song when everything else is going wrong. Its almost like a refresh button that gives you clarity once more.

My mother tongue is Tamil an ancient language. Pink Floyd made me a fan of English music.

I'm a sperm and I love this music, while everyone in my generation doesn't even listen to music yet. I hate my generation.
Keith Whitty
We are all crazy diamonds and when you accept the concept of your potential, anything is possible.
Rob Tremble
In my opinion, the greatest piece of rock music (if not all music) ever recorded. The bold move to write a 25:33 minute song in the day of 3 minute radio garbage (radio gaga as Roger Tyler from Queen called it) with a 8:40 minute introduction was rebellious and bold and brilliant. The song gave me chills when I first heard it at age 15, and it still does today at 57. It is musical bliss.
Moose Hutchinson
Its a daunting task to try and say, without a doubt, what the very best Floyd track is. This here, along with Echoes and Dogs stand among the pinnacle of their musical accomplishments. Furthermore, I posit they stand among themselves comparable to some of the finest pieces of music this world has known. Beethoven 5th and 9th, Mozart 25, Rachmaninoff suite 1, Tchiakovsky Marche Slave etc. PF is easily the only band, at least who I have heard that absolutely sounds like nobody else. You can't say the words "Floyd kind of sounds like ...." From start to finish, they are nothing short of a gift to the realm
Fred Pettis
I well remember the 1st time I heard this album, in full, in the "new" Quadraphonic format, on a Stereo designed to play said format. A 4 way windowpane party was the perfect venue to "experience" it in! With a sufficient quantity of THC on board, and the acid coming on, we were all frozen in place until it was time to flip the record over! Then rinse and repeat! I truly miss those days of black-lights, and luminescent backgrounds, and the grand friends who shared those treasured times!
Schack G. Lystrup
Mom said only one song before bed...
Leslie Thomas
Used to fall asleep to this when I was a kid maybe 9 or 10. no drugs. just a record player in my room. 6 years later I heard it for the first time on acid. Now I'm 43 years old father of a 2 and a half year old daughter listening to this with my family at the dinner table. How time's have changed..............
Charlesbjtown
"Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky". That's the perfect description of someone who is gone.....unreachable.
hard truth
Entire album is a beautiful synthesis of progressive rock and progressive jazz done in a sort of intelligent simplicity that everyone can understand. And still has alot of those out-of-this world electronic effects carried over from the psychedelic 60's. - I Hope that sums it up.
Mike Martin
Better than The Wall... sorry Roger.
Jason Kruger
This song is way more longer than relationships nowadays.
BGE 221
This song was played at my grandads funeral, this song has a place in my heart 😢😔🤧
Filip Vander Stappen
Magnificent, brilliant. And still some people deem it necessary to bring race, racism, stereotyping, stupidity, baseness and utter stupidity into this. Just enjoy the music, please. Who cares what color the artists had, art knows no color, breed or even ethics. Art is art. And this is art in its most sublime form. Please just recognize genius, enjoy it, love life and love your fellow humans.
Estelle Gilbert
Why do people make rap when they can make beautiful music like this one?

Syd barret walked into the studio after 7 years of no contact, coincidently they were playing this song. Syds last words in the band: “what is a dream?”
Dio Brando
Crazy Diamond is unbreakable
James Fletcher
This is one of those songs that takes you back to a place and time...its almost a visceral connection between music and memory. Pink Floyd were the masters of the sonic experience.

This is the worst song for YouTube to buffer on (T_T)

16:49 to 17:52 is when my heart stops beating and the music pumps the blood through my veins. The whole thing is absolute genius, timeless, gorgeous, I've been listening to this for 30 years now and I still get chills every time.

Cecilia Anicama
Why so many dislikes for this masterpiece? The world is full of stupid people.

A synth guru once showed me the intro. It's not a G minor chord being slowly turned up, as most people play it. It's a series of oscillators adding a new voice progressively. The detail is mind-blowing. An easier way to do it is to slowly turn up a low-pass filter to allow more high frequencies in slowly. But just turning up a G minor chord slowly is less accurate.
Raph Thib
I really like that some stories, movies, books, and in this case, mangas, use good songs from the past or mention their name. Sure, some kids will comment about the thing where they heard it or where it was mentioned, but the author's goal is fulfilled : making more people know about a song he/she enjoyed back in the day.
Derek Poe
This song give me the blues...the Bob Dylan blues....
Alex Guthrie
it baffles me that half of the comments talk about how they should listen to this on drugs when the song is dedicated to a person who ruined his life with drugs. the irony is too strong
Hugh Mongus
The album's cover images were photographed by Aubrey 'Po' Powell, Storm's partner at the design studio Hipgnosis, and inspired by the idea that people tend to conceal their true feelings, for fear of "getting burned", and thus two businessmen were pictured shaking hands, one man on fire.
Donald Brown
Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine! Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light. Shine on you crazy diamond. Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine! Come on you boy child, you winner and loser, come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine.
Juan Bernal
The last piece is a combination of scare and sadness... is tends to change my feeling and atmosphere... but the last part... when it seems the diamond has been broken... it is a sound of the hope and the good old times...
Peter Bellini
I started college as a freshman in 1973. In parallel to EVERYTHING else in my life I listened to Dark Side of the Moon and it altered my brain chemistry. I thought I was safe and locked away that collection. Then in my late sophomore and junior year Welcome to the Machine came out in 1975. Oh man, did that start to change the way I thought about where our culture was headed directionally. By the time Animals came out in spring of my senior year in 1977, I resigned myself to the icons/archetypes of the Floyds' symbolism. I won't say their music was the soundtrack of those years exactly. BUT, in a darker universe you could say that.....
Inuzupunupi
I was born in exactly the right generation. I was born in the generation that can listen to this music without waiting for it to come out.

Pink Floyd has material that is timeless. It's a shame that listening to it in this format doesn't do it justice. It originally was intended for quadraphonic (4-channel), not stereo. When listening to Money you hear the change/cash register ect, you would hear the sounds coming from four independent corners all around you. It is a totally different perspective. This Same thing with Time and the clocks go off. This tech attempted a come back with the reintroduction of SACD, but the format just didn't catch on. They were just too ahead of their Time (No Pun). https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaP1IIUx7oDjSG1jvfdbeYw

25 minutes well spent. Wake up people. please.
John Williams
Classical music in the modern age. Pink Floyd ranks up there with Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Hayden, etc.
Emiliano Herrera
Happy birthday Crazy Diamond.

Pink Floyd will be remembered in the same regard as Mozart or Beethoven
Barry Caldwell
first time I heard this I was working at heathrow airport as an HGV driver,they played this just as an eclipse was happening,so I put up the volume just as it got dark,it was like a magical experience,particularly as everything came to a stop as the eclipse started,fantastic feeling

Just when God comes down as music
Is MellL
Is there any other guitar player so discretely perfect as Gilmour? God, the preciseness with which he bends the notes is almost inhuman, but you can't really notice it unless you know what to look for. Christ, even his rhythmic guitar when Wright takes over again has such a cool harmony, and then he comes back with a fury!
dhiemart32
I started to fly beyond the stars ! what a feeling ! It's wonderful. Some things i can not explain with words, and music was made for that.
Daniel Collins
I have always believed that at 22:15 it's the slow death of the song. It's as if the song is bleeding out and wanting more than any thing to go on. It's incredibly sad. The emotions that I have attached to not just this album, but many other Pink Floyd albums, is just baffling to me. My two largest regrets in life are that I won't be able to continue to enjoy Pink Floyd after my death and that I was born a generation too late to attend the concerts when the band was together.
Gabriel Ryan-Leon
If Part 4 had inspiration from this song, I could imagine Act 6-9 could be Araki referring to Josuke still looking for the guy who saved him all those years back. It’s all just speculation from when the lyrics starts with “Nobody knows where you are, how near or how far.”
HERB MILLS
When you look at a star you are looking back in "TIME". This piece is timeless and was produced with no concept of "TIME". I would say also that it is timeless because it is music that is pure with no reference to "TIME" or pop culture or any other reference of historical significance. It perpetuates forward through time effortlessly in magical harmony with space.

I'll never forget when I heard this song for the first time when I was young. This music (the long intro) opened a new dimension of expiriences in my life. It's so magical and it stays that way every time I listen to it.

I lived on the street traveling around for nearly 13 years..back in 1998 I was 18 (Im almost 40 now) and my uncle down in Florida where I was at at the time gave me this album on cassette, and This song always reminds me of sitting at the end of the pier on Fort Myers beach, Florida late at night and how still to this day i can remember how awesome the cool ocean breeze felt and peaceful it was...Music like this is amazing, and I think important. Too bad this kind of stuff seems so lost on todays youth.

This song has the same meaning to me as it did the Pink Floyd band members who wrote it about their friend/ex band member Syd Barrett. One of my best friends growing up was lost to bad acid. My friend was the one everyone followed, a great thinker. Everyone wanted to always be around him. Our plans usually started with him or him in mind. He started heavily using acid among other things. Overnight it seems he was no longer himself, fighting shadows, punching cement till his fists were all bloodied. He used to talk to this statue of a Buddha on his porch. One night in front of his mother he was running around the neighborhood cars claiming to be chasing a demon that was causing all his problems. Yelling like a mad man he was relentlessly chasing nothing. His mother crying came to hug her son, he pushed her calling her a bitch and the big brother stepped in and clocked him. As he laid on the floor I came to him and asked if he was ok. He replied, I just want to die man. Something is wrong with me. That killed a little of me inside.

There was a time, dear children, when there was Great music written and played. Yes, loved ones, played and recorded by actual great musicians. No no, not sampled on a computer. No. Played on real musical instruments, yes. Who were Pink and Floyd ? No idea. By talented young dudes with proud long hair. What ? how many there was ? Oh many, many bands they were called then. Who ? Well there was Chicago... no, not the city but once calles Chicago Transit Authority at their best, Then, aaah yeah, Lead Zeppelin, The Doors, The rolling Stones, yes, those sad really old geesers now. Also a not so cute girl from Texas but with The Voice, called Janis, with a deeply broken hearth. Who else ? Genesis, Procol Harum ...Oh so many, many, you'll have to Google "'70s musical scene". Some crap we prefer to ferget but also geat ones. Love you, children.

In 1975 I was 14 y.o. and I believed Pink Floyd did not exist thinking it was laboratory music; I mean I had no notion regarding to space rock or psichedelic rock. anyway was good to have such an innocent thought

When I listen to this song I get so damn happy I can't describe it, like my heart is about to explode, happens everytime I fall in love with a song, a great feeling.

I lost my job when this album came out ,was working at Sears on weekends over night stocking shelves. Went to the record department got a copy then went to the stereo department and proceeded to play this album as I'm eating lunch and security frowned upon it. Got fired the next day ,I think it was worth it.
Brian Carruthers
This is just so far beyond what entails a piece of music with words added to it. This is what a brilliant song is all about. You couldn't ask for a more fitting tribute to Syd Barrat than this. Only Pink Floyd could ever have elevated this song into the position it so richly deserves. We poor mortals can only thank the boys for allowing us the constant pleasure in listening to it. Thank you so much for this video. Brian Carruthers. A very appreciative Englishman.

One of those songs that will change your life.

Glad to see very little jojo comments here. I'm a hardcore jojo fan myself, but listened to PF before i found jojo. seeing so many unfunny, unoriginal, and redundant comments about jojo on any song is really infuriating, i absolutely hate it. If youre a jojo fan and see this, please dont comment about it. you just end up looking like a retard.
