    Right on Benny.
    I used to play along to this album all the time....finally saw the movie a few years ago.
    Just found this tidbit on Wiki, concerning Pink Floyd's involvement in the film....

    As they had done on More, the band saw a rough cut of the film and noted certain timings for cues with a stopwatch. From this, they created a number of pieces that they felt could be cross-faded at various points in the final cut of the film. They were not worried about creating complete songs, feeling that any musical piece would be workable without the need for any solos, but nevertheless, under pressure to produce enough material, they managed to create a whole series of well-structured songs. Drummer Nick Mason recalls that the sessions were very hurried, and the band spent most of the time in Paris locked away in the studio.

    Nice song/cool video but Springsteen’s 10th Avenue Freeze out keeps taking over in my head. : )

    39 years later, I still think of that as the "new" hit song from Van Morrison. ;)
