Who fucking knows anymore? First, it meant factual, and now it means fictional. What the fuck, internet... what the fuck?

To correct the above entry, Pink Floyd never delved into quadrophonics because "There weren't enough loonies ready to position themselves exactly in the canter of the room for the maximum listening experience."

Wish You Were Here, along with Animals and Dark Side of the Moon, is one of the best Pink Floyd albums. It dealt mainly with the abscence of Syd Barrett, but also took a stab at record companies and the music industry. The songs on Wish You Were Here are (in order):

- Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Part 1)
- Welcome To The Machine
- Have A Cigar
- Wish You Were Here
- Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Part 2)
JIM: Hey! Watcha got in that there hand of yours?

SALLY: Hey! Give me back Pink FLoyd's album, Wish You Were Here!
JIM: No! It rocks too much ass!

1) British progressive rock band Pink Floyd's ninth studio album. It mainly deals with the absence of former band member Syd Barrett. The album cover features a highly recognizable image of a normal man shaking hands with a man on fire in a movie studio backlot. One of the two Pink Floyd albums to have the text on the spine in the CD version reading from bottom to top, along with Animals. The track listing is as follows:
1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts I-V) - (13:40)
2. Welcome to the Machine - (7:31)
3. Have A Cigar - (5:08)
4. Wish You Were Here - (5:34)
5. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts VI-IX) - (12:31)

Probably Pink Floyd's third most famous work, bested only by Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall.

2) A song on the album "Wish You Were Here," notable for it's very distinctive acoustic guitar line.

3) An Incubus song that has nothing to do with the Pink Floyd work, and whose popularity pales in comparison.
1) - Have you heard "Wish You Were Here"?
- Hell yeah! That's one of my favourite albums!

2) - Have you heard "Wish You Were Here"?
- Hell yeah! That's one of my favourie songs!

3) - Have you heard "Wish You Were Here"?
- Hell yeah! That's one of my favourite albums!
- No, the Incubus song.
- Umm...no.

Pink Floyd's 9th studio album, released in 1975. Often considered one of their greater works and one of the best albums ever. Also the name of a song featured in the same album, one of the band's more well-known songs.
