Song of the Day: Pink Floyd – “Astronomy Domine”

50 years ago this week, Pink Floyd began work on their debut album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Written by Syd Barrett, this spacey gem is the first track off the album and one the band continued to play live for decades to come (David Gilmour still plays the song live). The song features keyboardist Richard Wright as a co-vocalist and the band’s then-manager Peter Jenner reading the names of planets over a megaphone at the beginning of the song. Still a very cool song 50 years later.
