The Reason Composers Don't Tell People What their songs mean | Reviewer: SAM | 2/27/14

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart originally wrote most of his works without a tempo AND THEN WENT BACK after the metronome was invented and added tempo markings. This showed that composers changed the meanings of songs all the time. IN orchestras, we change what the composer was first thinking of when playing how we want to. Good music can be interpret more than one way. Imagine a soundtrack with a horse racing. The hooves are clacking and it only brings a stale image to mind. But when everyone can relate to music, it is more interesting. That is what bands want.

To the one that talked about the actual meaning | Reviewer: Antonia | 9/5/13

Well... I think that what you said is really basic. I mean, it's ok if you know a about the actual meaning of the song and what was their inspiration and all that stuff. But really, like REALLY sometimes (or every time from my point of view) music is not just about how and what and all the square thought. I think good music makes that, good music let your inspiration flow and you start to think even things that they didn't think about... The language is full of symbols, sometimes you don't even know what you are really saying. I think one of the best things of pink floyd is that, they put the subject on the table and they just accompany you on your own trip while listening to their music.
So maybe you should use less google and start to think on your own self, not all the answers are on the outside and not everything has its logical answer. Sometimes you just have to let your mind go.

comfortable numb | Reviewer: NenadL | 7/31/13

hey guys, it is amazing what people think about comfortable numb lyrics. This song is wonderful, i have heard it for 100 times and again and again it reminds me on some memories of my life. Especially I have heard it many times during my preparation for exams on faculty because it relaxed me. Today after 25 years after it is the same thing and it looks that i will listening to this song many many times because, once again, it is wonderful - lirics and music!

Has anyone researched the actual meaning...? | Reviewer: Cranberry Almanstaughter | 7/13/12

The band has openly admitted that the song was about heroin use among other things. They wrote the song after the days of drugs hen they were cleaning up/clean. I do not have to say " i think" ot "to me this means" because if you just do a little research you can find the quotes from the articles where single members as well as the band interviewed as a whole and mentioned the inspiration for the song and every other aspect of inspiration was mainly related to drugs. I already kno some of you dont wanna believe it or think your right even though your not, but thats ok, the internet is full of people like you, all i have to say is google it. Enjoy the cong Yall!

Rheumatic Fever? | Reviewer: Tommy Two Pockets | 5/15/12

When I was about 11-12 years old, I had Rheumatic Fever. I used to wake up with nightmares and sleepwalk around the house talking about my hands feeling like they were blown up like balloons by a vacume cleaner in reverse. When I heard this song for the first time, I was convinced the author/songwriter had Rheumatic Fever. It was strangely comforting to know I wasn't alone.

my point of view on comfortably numb | Reviewer: marcus McKenzie | 2/25/12

Heres my 2 cents worth.

When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone

...When i was a kid/young teenager I would sometimes get really sick with fever and hallucinate extremely vividly... Some of what id see was funny almost comical, others terrifying... Some things just stick with you for years and years and years. Some of what I saw back then really made me wonfder if we just living a dream within a dream...

I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb...

...I am older now, grown into a man, only the meories of such thinghs that i experienced as a child remain now, replaced by the hollow sterile feel of adult life in apathetic society... I have become comfortably numb...

Fucked up information... EXPLAIN | Reviewer: EugeneIsNotCareful | 11/12/11

Well... If you are shocked and you think it's true,
So go on Youtube, find some His solo, (for example Comfortably Numb) and just look at Dave's hands...

That "fucked up information" is ABSURD and CRAZY...
Don't worry... It's NOT TRUE...!!!
L B, yes you're wrong... Don't worry...!!!

Fucked up information... EXPLAIN | Reviewer: EugeneIsNotCareful | 11/12/11

In Czech we have some fucking newspaper and if they find any famous person they think up some fucking ABSURD information...
ISN' T THIS SIMILAR?
Or THE SAME?

David is sufficiently good (great... The best...)
To can play HIS solos....!!!!

it's public content now | Reviewer: chris from cal | 10/24/11

After an artist has launched a piece, it becomes viewed from an infinite number of places and angles, under different illuminations,from those various points of location and time, with the subsequent unpredictabiity of the resulting refractions that we see. the band no longer owns the meaning of the song. you do.

fucked up information | Reviewer: L B | 10/6/11

Guys one thing about pink floyd david gilmour is not the real guitarist for the band he is a guitarist but half of the solos had been played with a backstage guitarist we all don't know him but he's so fkn good even better than david gilmour and comfortably numb is one of the songs that this backstage guitarist played it ... I hope that I'm wrong but that's what I know and it realy shocked me...

Finding relevance | Reviewer: kmarie66 | 9/26/11

When I was younger I thought this song was about drug abuse and I can still see the relationship today. I have had a personal experience that brings this song to mind. 5 years ago, I lost my 12 year old son in a traumatic accident. Afterwards I felt completely numb. All my emotions were blunted for a period of about 3 months. When the numbness wore off I sought to preserve that feeling any way I could, first through alcohol, then pills, and finally IV narcotics. I can so identify with the feeling of becoming"comfortably numb." Through therapy and 12 step support I have come out the other side. My initial numbness was a gift to spare me the pain when I did not have the strength to bear it, my imposed numbness via drugs and alcohol was my feeble attempt at escape. Pain will not kill you, loss will not disable you.

I THINK AS IF IT MATTERS | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/5/11

i think this song has a specific meaning to the band and it's members at the time it was written and to them it was about drug abuse. but i also think it can be inturpreted by the listener to mean that whatever demon u battle u find a way to moivate yourself to go on by whatever means necassary..so for the listener it can mean whatever you want it to mean the point of the song is that everyone has thier own battles to fight and we find ways to go on weather it is to self medicate or not and weather the pain is from drug abuse or another factor like the loss of a loved one or physical handicaps that limit u they are all true that is the point of music to be interprated by the listener and for the listner to identify with it...and this is such a great song because so many people do identify with it.. it means so many different things to so many different people,... nevermind the kick ass guitar solos they are the best ever...so haunting love it always have....

This reminds me of something I can't put my finger on it.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/29/11

These lyrics remind me of something Albert Hofmann (discoverer of LSD) recollected in an anecdote of his childhood. It was about some visions he used to have as a child when he was out amongst nature, the feeling of connectedness to everything, like a holy experience he would have. I can't find the exact quote but these lyrics mirror what he said – it all came back when he took LSD by accident the first time. He said after that, when he wanted to reconnect with nature and experience that childlike wonder again, he takes LSD. He suggested most modern adults could do so as well, to escape the concrete jungle and rediscover their dreams and wonderment. Good advice…

When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb...

The Wall | Reviewer: Jack | 7/21/11

The song is not about drugs. People get the feeling it is because there is reference (especially in the movie, when Pink shaves off all his body hair after having a mental breakdown, which is something Syd also did) to founding member Syd Barret. Comfortably Numb is not written about heroin (although I can see why people get that feeling). It, along with most of the whole album, is based on Roger Waters experiences. As a child he used to get these spasms in his hands and the doctor would give him medication which made him comfortably numb. And once, before going onstage, he became very nervous and a doctor again gave him some medication which made him comfortably numb. It is unlikely that Waters himself ever even tried Heroin as he only experienced with LSD a few times.
