Our UK guest Benevolent Pimperton, a friend of the Seany D show, helped assess emotions and feelings generated from some Pink Floyd songs.
The show took a look at tracks from the Piper at the Gates of Dawn and A Saucerful of Secrets, the first two albums released by Pink Floyd in 1967 and 1968 respectively.
Benevolent, a huge Pink Floyd fan, tells his story about how songs from these two albums contributed to generating specific feelings and emotions from him.
Off the air, Benevolent said, “Songs are personal. People listen to songs for their emotional element. Songs bring back memories, some bad, some good. Songs have a configuration that energizes us all and brings us to a state where we can get lost for a few minutes to reflect on moments of time that we want to re-enact. There are some songs we don’t want to allow us to remember, but we listen to them anyway because they somehow it make us stronger.”
He never stopped to try to explain his time in California when Pink Floyd performed on their first tour of San Francisco and Los Angeles between November 4 and November 12, 1967.
