In honor of dear Syd’s birthday, here’s one of the rarest songs I’ve ever shared on this blog. Don’t get too excited, it’s just me covering a Syd tune. Still: rare! Anyway, I encourage people to learn one of Barrett’s songs sometime. Even though there’s that off-kilter element, making listeners think “wow man Syd was so out of it,” these songs are very composed, if you know what I mean. They’re weirdly composed, sure, but with an intentionality and logic that is revealed when you play the songs yourself. At least that was my experience.
