This line means... ?
- "The title is used as a running reference in 'Linda Smith's a brief history of time wasting' by the cabbie warren."
mean, exactly? -albrozdude 19:02, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
This doesn't make sense
Actually, right now it says this: The title derives from a phrase used by the cab driver, Wora, in the BBC's Linda Smith's A Brief History of Timewasting. 
How can a song from 1967 be influenced by a radio program from 2001?
I apologize; I honestly cannot find where to make a new section. I took this out: "The main riff E E F E D E... is in the locrian mode. " This suggests Phrygian only. There is no diminished 5, which is an absolute requirement to fall within the Locrian mode. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:28, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
"The band OM is very influenced by this track, if not based upon it."
Possible Reference by Macabre
The 1972 single by Macabre (later Pentagram) called "Be Forewarned" contains the line "I've lived on the Dark side of the Moon and been to the heart of the sun." Since DSoTM came out in '73, I'm wondering if this is a coincidence. (Albert Mond (talk) 10:59, 13 December 2008 (UTC))
Phrygian vs. Locrian Mode
To the guy below: You're absolutely right. This song can be interpreted as being in Locrian Mode by mistake rather easily.
The main riff does use E E F E D E..., but part way through the song, the same pattern is moved up to A A A# A G A. The A# might be seen as the diminished fifth, inferring Locrian Mode, but in fact this section is really just a key change that is also using the Phrygian Mode.
We can hear the perfect (non-diminished) fifth (B) during Richard Wright's keyboard solo as well as the vibraphone hits throughout the song. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:19, 14 October 2009 (UTC)
Has anybody ever actually been able to hear it? Try and try as I might I can't spot anything resembling a guitar line throughout the song, unless it's somehow doubling the bass part (Gilmour would later play the bassline on his guitar in live performances). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:09, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
I've reverted the devertion by anonymous user 220.127.116.11 - there are probably a thousand small bands and performers who have made cover versions of this song: in regard to cover versions, particular artistes are only considered noteworthy on Wikipedia if they already have their own page on here (or at least, the album in question does) - otherwise song pages would quickly become little more than unmanageably long lists ~dom Kaos~ (talk) 16:15, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
