When you posted your Pigs video, you wrote the resistance begins today. How else are you fighting Trump? I hope that my tour, Us + Them, will be an exercise in resistance, not just to Trump, but to all the despots, dictators, thieves and ne’er-do-wells all over the world – and unfortunately there are a lot of them. We have to organize our love in such a way that it becomes a potent and powerful enough tour to resist their narcissism and their greed and their callous disregard for the feelings of others and their absolute lack of the ability to empathize with anybody. Why did you decide to make a rock album this time? I don’t think there’s any questio. hen I was touring The Wall, which I did between 2010 and 2013, I always had a guitar with me in the hotel room and I had a lot of time. At a certain point, I wrote this one song that demands an answer to a particular question.
Us and Them" is a song by the English progressive rock band Pink Floyd, from their 1973 album The Dark Side of the Moon. The music was written by Richard Wright with lyrics by Roger Waters. It is sung by David Gilmour, with harmonies by Wright. The song is 7 minutes, 51 seconds in length, making it the longest on the album. Us and Them" was released as the second single from The Dark Side of the Moon in the United States, peaking at No. 72 on the Cash Box Top 100 Singles chart in March 1974
I immediately knew what it was going to be about, what the visuals were going to be, and everything in terms of how I wanted it to be perceived. It inspired what the album is about.
As I was a walking down by the Lock, As I was walking one morning of late, Who did I spy but my own dear comrade, Wrapp'd in flannel, so hard is his fate. When I Was a Young Girl", a female version of the same theme, was popular on the folk music circuits in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and was recorded by Barbara Dane and Odetta before being revived by Nina Simone and Leslie Feist. In 1995, Judy Collins used the tune of "Streets of Laredo" for the song "Bard of my Heart", about her late son Clark, on her album, Shameless.
Yeah it was better back when we were kids Thought we knew everything, we really did Had no money but so rich Nobody cared about what we did Another fight and another kiss But now it's water under the bridge. Another consequence, another day And now I'm caught up in a rat race No money, just got picked It takes me back to when I was free It takes me back to a memory To all the water under the bridge
He put them in a big basket, but he was old and weak, so he always paid another man to carry the basket home for him. But one Saturday, while he was walking home in front of the man with the basket, the man ran away with it. The next Saturday, when Nasreddin went to the market again, a friend of his said, 'Look, there he is! That man stole your things last week!' . I have only one shirt,' he said to the surprised people, 'and when I wash it and hang it up to dry, it always rains. What was Nasreddin doing at the beginning of this story ? What happened one day ?
