Should some mention of the fact that it is titled "Breathe in the Air" on the DVD's track listing be made? InTheFlesh? 03:48, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Laserdisc & VCD[edit]

PULSE was also officially released on Laserdisc and VCD in some countries, but I'm not sure exactly when. Any ideas? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Total Eclipse (talkcontribs) 10:00, 15 December 2006 (UTC).

I think so, since it was possible to get Pulse on DVD, even on Amazon, although it was not the official Pulse dvd edition. Any thoughts anyone?

Since I bought the VCD online via Hong Kong seller in 2001, I wanted to confirm that at the very least an Official VCD EXISTS. However I cannot find a solid release date (there is no VCD database?). The booklet is all in English and includes advertisements for all ~1995 music (Barbra Streisand The Concert-july1994 / Celine Dion Colour of my love concert 1995 / Mariah Carey Fantasy Live at Madison Square Garden (released early 1996 per WIKI)/ "M2VCD-50121" matches a few sites for a Malaysian release. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:36, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Giant eyeballs, eh? I'll be damned . . . .[edit]

From the trivia section:

Two giant eyeballs that were used to promote the DVD release, were sold on eBay for £16,500 . . . .

When you're talking about giant eyeballs, it's good to mention what they're made of. Papier-mache, fiberglass, rubber, titanium, what have you. We wouldn't want to imply they were real eyeballs. Wikipedia didn't come here to give us the willies! It came to help us out!!

When we talk about The Wall concerts, we don't just say they built a wall across the stage and knocked it down; we mention that it was made of cardboard. We don't just say they crashed an airplane onstage; we mention that it was small and unmanned. You get the picture. -- 21:32, 26 April 2007 (UTC)


  • While the album is a mix of various concerts, this video is of a single performance.
  • The mirror ball used at the end of the song "Comfortably Numb" is one of the largest in the world. 4.9 metres in diameter, it rises to a height of 21.3 metres before opening to a width of 7.3 metres, revealing a 12 kilowatt Phobeus HMI lamp.[1]
  • In the original PPV broadcast, right before the segue into "Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2", the word "ENIGMA" appeared on the backdrop before it was scribbled out by a black permanent marker. It also appeared on the VHS version, although with added strokes making it slightly harder to see. This was one of the confirmations to various Pink Floyd message groups that the Publius Enigma puzzle was legitimate. On the 2006 DVD version, the screen reads "E=MC2" instead of "ENIGMA" (although ENIGMA does appear for a brief moment on the DVD), seeming to confirm Nick Mason's statements to various book signing crowds that the puzzle was real, but that the person behind it at EMI no longer works for them and that the riddle has been abandoned.
  • In "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" the lead vocals (originally done by Waters) is sung by David Gilmour.
  • In "Another Brick In The Wall (Part II)" the lead vocals (originally done by David Gilmour and Roger Waters), are done by Gilmour and Jon Carin.
  • The lead vocal of "The Great Gig in the Sky", originally done by Clare Torry alone, is done in turn by Sam Brown, Claudia Fontaine and Durga McBroom.
  • In "Comfortably Numb", the part of the Doctor (originally by Waters) is sung by Richard Wright, Jon Carin and Guy Pratt providing backing vocals.
  • During the introduction to "Run Like Hell", Gilmour plays some notes from the Vera Lynn's song "We'll Meet Again", in reference to The Wall album.
  • For "Run Like Hell", Guy Pratt takes the place in "replying" to David Gilmour that belonged to Roger Waters in the The Wall tour. In the original recording, all the lead vocals of the song were by Waters, but each line alternated between channels, giving the illusion of multiple voices.
  • The DVD release entered the music DVD charts at #1 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and the US. Additionally, it has one of the top 3 best first week's DVD sales in the US.[2]
  • For some reason the song Breathe was listed as "Breathe in the Air" on the DVD release.
  • Cover art is once more done by Storm Thorgerson, the same designer and photographer that has worked with Pink Floyd several times before.
  • Two giant eyeballs that were used to promote the DVD release, were sold on eBay for £16,500, with the proceeds being donated to the homeless charity, Crisis.[3]

Requested move[edit]

For one, nobody is ever going to type in P•U•L•S•E to search for this album, and rightly so. The spelling "P•U•L•S•E" is practically never used in the media, instead it is spelled as "Pulse". This spelled also breaks the WP:MOSTM rule of all caps (the letters in P•U•L•S•E aren't pronounced separately, it's just "pulse".) -Xnux the Echidna 15:02, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

It shouldn't be moved to Pulse (film) because there are other films with that name. Could be Pulse (1995 film), or Pulse (concert video)... ? Sam (talk) 17:27, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Okay, how about Pulse (Pink Floyd film)? -Xnux the Echidna 02:12, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

It seems that Pulse (1995 film) would be more consistent with naming conventions for films, but I'm not passionate about it. I do think it should be "Pulse" and not P*U*L*S*E or any such nonsense. You're quite right, people just call it "Pulse", and naming conventions proscribe using all caps in these cases. Wilhelm meis (talk) 22:55, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
