Watch studio 8-Track version w/Snowy White guitar solo...definitive version of the song in HD 1080p!
If you didn't care what happened to me,
And I didn't care for you
We would zig zag our way through the boredom and pain
Occasionally glancing up through the rain
Wondering which of the buggers to blame
And watching for pigs on the wing.
You know that I care what happens to you
And I know that you care for me too
So I don't feel alone
Of the weight of the stone
Now that I've found somewhere safe
To bury my bone
And any fool knows a dog needs a home
A shelter from pigs on the wing
Featured in A Handful of Pink Floyd Videos:
"Pigs on the Wing" is a two-part song by the progressive rock band Pink Floyd from their 1977 concept album, Animals, starting and wrapping up the album.
This video features a live version taken from an Oakland, CA concert in 1977 where Part 1 was followed by "Dogs" and then Part 2. I've combined parts one and two.
This video was originally created for the studio versions, w/Snowy White's guitar solo tying them together, (Video #72 if you happen to live in that one country where it's apparently still playing), but since (almost) no one can see it, I dug through some old live boots and reedited the video. 3rd time's the charm (hopefully) as I had previously reedited and uploaded a cover version of the track (also #73), but I just wasn't feeling it, so it's now been replaced with this live version.
I sure wish my original video would be allowed to play as it remains my preferred version of the song..and the video as well. Oh well, maybe some other day?
Animals ties Wish You Were Here as my favorite Pink Floyd album. It's a extremely dark album, but it captures the band at the height of their considerable musical prowess.
I hope this video is (finally!) the start of several I hope to do by Pink Floyd....I won't rest until I've taken a shot at a video for every track on both Wish You Were Here and Animals.....course it might take a while?! LOL!
Anyway....it's a start....hope you enjoy it.
