GREEN IS THE COLOUR

Mojo (UK) - - The 50 Greatest Pink Floyd Songs -

(from More OST, 1969)

We’re all to­gether and chill­ing is our aim. Eigh­teen years be­fore acid house, this is what hippy drug mu­sic sounded like on Ibiza. Two acous­tic gui­tars, a half-awake pi­ano and a tin whis­tle, played by Ma­son’s then wife Lindy, adding a soupçon of a spaghetti west­ern heat-haze. Gil­mour, strain­ing up­wards in a daunt­ing key, sings of a woman’s eyes and the colour of jeal­ousy; in the film, gamine Es­telle dances, tick­les Ste­fan’s nip­ple with a blade of grass and kisses him. The is­land passes from dawn to dusk in three min­utes. DC
