I was saddened to learn that Richard Wright, the longtim keyboardist for Pink Floyd passed away yesterday.  Wright wrote Us & Them and The Great Gig in the Sky from the enormously successful album Darkside of the Moon and made significant contributions to numerous other classic Pink Floyd songs. 


Here’s a recording of Us & Them set to parts of the movie The Blue Max:

Here’s a recording of Wright singing the song “Wearing the Inside Out” from the Division Bell on Gilmore’s 2006 solo tour:

IMO, The Great Gig In The Sky is the most beautiful/poignant songs ever recorded.
