Song of The Day #034

"Dark Globe" by Syd Barrett

"Dark Globe" is a weird song, but it's unassuming in its weirdness. It seems like just a simple acoustic guitar and voice tune until the meter becomes sporadic, the lyrics take a turn for the bizarre, a dissonant chord or two show up, and Barrett starts yelling. The effect is a twisted and emotional folk song that shows why Pink Floyd got worse after Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.
