Astronomy domine Lyrics - Pink Floyd
Review The Song (11)
Lime and limpid green
a second scene,
A fight between the blue
you once knew.
Floating down the sound resounds around the icy waters underground.
Jupiter and Saturn
Oberon Miranda and Titania
Stars can frighten
Blinding signs flap flicker flicker flicker
Blam pow pow
Stairway scare Dan Dare,who's there?
Lime and limpid green
The sound surrounds the icy waters under
Lime and limpid green
The sound surrounds the icy waters
Writer: SYD BARRETT

power of pink floyd | Reviewer: rajat | 3/14/11
this is the first song on the first album(lp) of pink floyd,this shows what pf offers in their music
this is so amazing

PF is unbelievably gifted music, and I urge you guys who listen to it on chemicals, to enjoy it "al fresco" without stimulants. You will see their genius in all its simplicity. David hanging a whole minute on a couple of tones. Roger using his voice to imbue complex emotions. Nick tip-toeing a whole melody on drums. Syd's mellifluous voice and creative axework. and my favorite, Rick pulling the whole song together with his melodies. Try it - no need to "spike" the experience!
Awsome song | Reviewer: The Major | 7/25/10
Yep, this song is one of the most awesome songs ever. It's one of the top songs in my list of favorite songs by PF.
Though there is even a trippier track by Pink Floyd: Interstellar Overdrive. First time I heard it at age 14 I felt like I was spinning dizzy around the galaxy. Pink are the best.

I think this song has a great point. I loved it since childhood, but only after taking an astrobiology course in college I began to appreciate its point. The "icy waters underground" may refer to the possible ocean discovered on one of Jupiter's moons. In any way, stars CAN frighten... the universe is exceptionally large and mysterious.
Of their time | Reviewer: GC | 5/31/09
The live version on "Ummagumma", albeit with Gilmour on guitar, is a classic. It is as good a tribute as you will find to Rick Wright and the contribution that his playing made to the early sound of Floyd. I saw them more times than I can recall in the 60s and 70s - this was always a highlight of their set.
Trippy Shit | Reviewer: Leilenah | 9/9/08
I think it's safe to say that this song if just about the trippiest song ever. When I first listened to it, I felt like I was on an acid trip. It's like I was walking on the sidewalk, and then all of a sudden I was levatating through a field of phsycadelia. It's great.
AHEAD OF THEIR TIME | Reviewer: Steve Skrobot | 6/15/08
I am a long-term Pink Floyd fan. When I was about 12 I began seriously listing to all the great bands of the day, Beatles, Stones, Elton John, The Who, and, of course, Pink Floyd. But their music was decidedly different. At that young, tender age, though I understood little about the subject matter, the presentation, for eg., of an album like Dark Side of the Moon, caused me to feel that this band was in a category of its own, for the subject matter seemed to have a seriousness to it that was non-existent in the works of the other bands of the day. I was hooked. Astronomy Domine is the first cut on the first side of the first LP. It still has an ahead-of-its-time sound even today, as the genius of Barrett often seemed to transcend time and space altogether. Though Barrett never wrote deep material like Waters came to do in later years, he is still regarded as an especially gifted artist from the purely compositional viewpoint. Lyrics were poetic and thought-provoking rather than dogmatic or thematic, and to this day there is nothing quite like Syd Barrett at his best. Only Hendrix equalled him in prowess.
Incredible Song | Reviewer: Jaysin Hill | 11/21/07
One of my top 5 Floyd songs if not #1. Voivod did a trippy cover of it in the 80's and actually sold a few albums thanks to this song. If you're a Floyd fan you must have this song!
Inspiration | Reviewer: David Suffield | 11/9/07
Wonderfl composition; The album (especially lyrics and title) inspired Led Zeppelin for writing Stairway to heaven.
Syd will forever be missed. | Reviewer: Rebecca Ashley | 7/17/07
I don't know how I lived before I heard this song...I love the astronomical feel. That is what is so cool about it...it's very psychadelic. Along with Echoes, Time, Learning to Fly, and Comfortably Numb, this is by far one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs! :) Love it.
