Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Full Length: Parts I - IX) - Pink Floyd

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.

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

"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.
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. : )
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..............
61 today 11/14/1957. Chose to listen in celebration. Drove 70 miles to purchase album. Well worth the effort. Also bought a bong.
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
Part I 00:00 Part II 03:55 Part III 06:27 Part IV 08:42 Part V 11:10 Part VI 13:18 Part VII 18:14 Part VIII 19:18 Part IX 22:15
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.
Keith Whitty
We are all crazy diamonds and when you accept the concept of your potential, anything is possible.
Arie Bos
This summer I blasted this through the open windows in my tiny French countryside village. The locals looked taken aback although one of them did a thumbs up. I explained that every once in a while I need to play this loud, very loud and have been doing so since I bought it while doing my army days in Germany back in early 1976.
James Lenin
Man my neighbours listen to some great music... whether they like it or not...
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.
micky blue2u
simply beautiful, 4.5k people have no soul
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?”
Mr. Mojo Risin'
I want this whole album played at my funeral.
One thing for sure: the dislike button on this track should be turned off!
Luca Proietti
The 4184 people who put a dislike have serious problems, I can't find another reason.
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.
Lee Glovick
lost my best friend recently and the Floyd helps with the pain!

Crazy Diamond is unbreakable
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

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.

Mom said only one song before bed...
7:39 that solo is one of the main reasons I was inspired to start playing guitar as a child, thank you Pink Floyd
James Dumont
I've listened to every Floyd song. This is THE Pink Floyd song.
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.

Who is listening to this with extra bass headphones on ? 🎧🎸👌
There are 2 types of Floydians; Those who take drugs before listening and those for whom the music is the drug
Squirrell O' Dhughaill
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.

Move over beethoven, mozart, etc... The masters have taken the stage!!!
ben bolt
One of the purest guitar player's in history .
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.

I really want this played at my funeral when i’ll die
Kimberly Breedlove
I saw pink Floyd when I was 14...I'm now 58...front and center in Cleveland stadium....bought acid at the door...general admission.(sit where you desire)...I was as close as one could be...on someone's shoulders I was face to face with Rodger Waters!!! Soaked in sweat with 90,000 fans...Mr. Waters tossed me his bass guitar pick...!!! The most exciting event in my to giving birth...I will never forget ...promoting animals!!!! oh yeah....the acid was fake....thank you Lord...didn't need it...didn't need anything....just my ears...I'm deaf in the left one...wonder why??? thank you Pink ROCK...

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).
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.
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...

Of pink Floyd hadn't existed....I dont think life would had been worth it.

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!
Durgon The Sturgeon
Syd where ever you are, we remember you. It was worth it man, even if it didn't seem so at the time.
Jesse Satterlee
I’ve been listening to Pink Floyd since the day I was born and this is by far my favorite song to listen to
When the world is broken, and the last members of humanity are trying to hold onto it, this song will play, and fix the world.
John Scourlas
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.
Somebody just drove down my street at 2:12 a.m. with this really, really loud...I still have hope in Mankind.
Ali Channa
Thank you so much God for giving me healthy ears so i can listen the master piece. tears and goosebumps <3 u PF
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.
Thaddeus Robinson
No love for Nick Mason on drums??? He’s amazing!

This song give me the blues...the Bob Dylan blues....

I don't remember where I first heard Pink Floyd. I was 17 when Dark Side of the Moon came out. All I knew was I had to go buy that album. And I bought all the rest as they came out.

Part 6 between 13:28 and 18:13 always gives me chills. What an awesome piece of music
If anything needs a 10 hour Youtube version it's this.

My favorite is part 1-3, 6, 8 and 9. Although the whole song put together is a journey.

I see all of these deep comments about the song and all I'm thinking about is Jouske screaming crazy diamond in an endless loop
Ned Montgomery
Song still makes me relive what was and wasn't. Truly a masterpiece for the ages and what's yet to come.
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.....
Chose to listen to this instead of watching porn. Best decision I made all day

At around 2:44, turn your volume up. I swear, you can hear someone crying.

There's 12 mins left of New Years Eve where i am now. Best soundtrack to end 2018 to!!
Michael Baucom
The best version of this song, hands down. I always hear something I didn't hear before every time, and,as always, adds to the genius of the song. And it chills me out, ultimately, which is the main reason I listen to it. Shine on all.
Thomas Henry Myers
One of the best track Floyd ever make a part from (money)
Ethan Messinger
That riff starting at 20:18 is amazing. I can't find any tabs on it and no one does it in the covers. I need it
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.

who else was playin guitar while listenin to it ?
