Classic Albums Live performs Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd

I was 14 in 1975 when the album came out
I had to take two buses to buy it
it was just something I did
I always had a job back then
it was liming baseball fields
you made pennies
so saving up for an album was a big deal
I’d been burned by other albums (Pablo Cruise, Caribou),
but I knew that Pink Floyd would not let me down

I made it down to Sams
only to find that the album was $4.99, not $3.99
I’d wasted a bus fare for nothing
I stood in the store holding the album up to the light
it was wrapped in a blue, see-through plastic
a lot of people don’t remember this underneath,
of course, was the iconic shot of the two businessmen shaking hands
I dreamed of owning the album
I went back to work I got an eye infection from the lime
I toughed it out and worked through it my eye was a mess,
but I got back on the bus, two weeks later,
and bought the album it was worth it

as the years passed, the album came to mean a great deal to me
there’s something connecting about it
we all star in our own movie as ‘Wish You Were Here’ plays
Pink Floyd wrote the album as a tribute to their founding member
tonight as the band recites the work with clarity and cool,
I’ll be thinking of people in my life who I wish were here with us
