Pink Floyd – “Coming Back To Life” Live
Lost In Thought And Lost In Time!
“Coming Back to Life” was written by David Gilmour and recorded by Pink Floyd in 1993 for their fourteenth studio album “The Division Bell.” It was released on March 28, 1994 in the UK and April 5, 1994 in the US. Gilmour dedicated this to his wife Polly Samson.
The song is played in C major. It opens with a synth droning a C major chord, leading to a slow guitar solo played with a clean sound.
The live versions of this track has been featured in their live double album “Pulse,” in David Gilmour’s solo concert in London at the Royal Festival Hall, in the live concert recording “Remember That Night” and Gilmour also played it during the Fender Stratocaster’s 50th birthday celebration held in 2004.
The first verse is then sung slowly over synth chords, before the main rhythm of the song appears, and the rest of the band join the arrangement. Another verse is sung, and followed by a guitar solo. After this guitar solo, the last few lines of the verse are sung again, and then a guitar solo is played until the end of the song.
Fantastic song from a legendary musician!
