Happy Birthday, Syd!

I just want to take a quick second to note that Syd Barrett's 62nd birthday would have been on Sunday.

If anyone has any suggestions for Syd songs to be played in his memory on next weeks show, let us know in the comments to this post, or via email at stonehenge@wrek.org

"And I borrowed the page from a leopard's cage
and I prowled in the evening sun's glaze
her head lifted high to the light in the sky
the opening dawn on her face..."

Happy Birthday, Syd!

An obvious choice, but do play "Octopus" please.

Love the playlist blog, btw. Keep up the great work!

It's an idea, someday
in my tears, my dreams
don't you want to see her proof?
Life that comes of no harm
you and I, you and I and dominoes, the day goes by...

You and I in place
wasting time on dominoes
a day so dark, so warm
life that comes of no harm
you and I and dominoes, time goes by...

Fireworks and heat, someday
hold a shell, a stick or play
overheard a lark today
losing when my mind's astray
don't you want to know with your pretty hair
stretch your hand, glad feel,
in an echo for your way.

It's an idea, someday...

It's an idea, someday
in my tears, my dreams
don't you want to see her proof?
Life that comes of no harm
you and I, you and I and dominoes, the day goes by...

"Dominoes"
