Στις 4 Οκτωβρίου 1975 οι Pink Floyd ανέβηκαν στο No.1 των βρετανικών άλμπουμ με το εξαιρετικό “Wish You Were Here”. Το άλμπουμ που στην ουσία αποτίει φόρο τιμής στο πρώην μέλος του γκρουπ τον Syd Barrett. Τα τραγούδια του άλμπουμ “Wish You Were Here”, “Shine On You Crazy Diamond”, “Welcome To The Machine” και “Have A Cigar”.

To τραγούδι “Wish You Were Here” είναι δημιουργία των Roger Waters και David Gilmour.

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from hell
Blue skies from pain
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We’re just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
And how we found
The same old fears
Wish you were here
