I was just listening to Wish You Were Here[Wiki] on Sunday: Syd Barrett, the member of Pink Floyd you haven't heard of, dead at 60.

I happened to have *heard about it* at my Tuesday night Karaoke place (alcohol, karaoke and wifi in the same building. how cool), so I sang Shine On as a dedication.

Well how cool are you! So do ya think next tuesday you could do "Several species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict" as an acapella tribute?

I *can* lay claim, however, to ever having heard the title...

I shall admit to having "sung" along with it multiple times, and having put it on a Hallowe'en tape which played behind me as I appeared in the decorated doorway for trick-or-treaters dressed as a mad woman. (There are several parts that are marginally singable; one that, well... fuggedaboutit.)
