The Great Gig in the Sky Lyrics - Pink Floyd
Review The Song (10)
"And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do, I
don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime.
If you can hear this whispering you are dying."
"I never said I was frightened of dying."

I am dying | Reviewer: Graeme | 1/7/14
Stage 4 Esophageal Cancer. I don't think I am afraid of dying, just would live to have more time to enjoy all those that I love. After all my pain and hurt will go away long before their's ever does.
It is you, Thank-you for LOVING ME! | Reviewer: Wendi Brown | 9/21/13
I married Robbie in 1988, after living together for four years prior, 29yrs. He went to the Emergency room in August of 2011 for a cough and 3 days later they told us he had stage 4 Prostate cancer with bone Metastasis. He was 51yrs. old on August 5th, 2012, less than a yr. He was my soul mate! We had our share of ugly times, but we are BEST FRIENDS!!! You never give up on your best friend and you can always trust him to be there! This song played every time I went to his grave! I was never a big Pink Floyd fan, but it has taken me over a year to get the message from The Best, Most unique man there ever will be!!! Thankyou Babe! I will never let you just be a memory, you are more alive than ever. You the MAN, honey! Love you Forever! Love, Wendi Brown. Robbie J. Brown 11/13/1960 to August 5, 2012 Everyone misses and Loves you Bert!
What a Gig | Reviewer: loonie on the path | 4/18/13
Decades of listening to the Dark Side brings me to my thought that the Great Gig is the premier female vocal of all time. It is arousing, touching, and slightly eerie. What a combination. The more I listen to it the more I like it, never gets old.
Amazing song | Reviewer: sara | 8/19/12
I heard this song once as a kid, and it was so eerie to me, Ididn't really know what to make of it. (I was six at the time) Five years later, I became a huge Pink Floyd fan and rediscovered the song. I gave it another shot, and it was just... wow. It was a whole new experience for me. I paid the song a little more attention to the song as I matured (same year) and I listened to what the man was saying. 'I'm not frightened of dying...' and then it all made sense. This is the sound of death. That sudden release of emotion, stress, worry. That moment when it all disappears. I never looked at the song or death the same way again. This song has definitely changed my life.
Perfection | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/5/10
This song defines it, not only does it capture the listener with the overwhelming feeling of death, it also combines the vocals of an incredibly talented singer (Clare Torry) along with masterfully combined instrumentals and sound effects.
PS: for those who know the story of the singer apologizing, its actually because she recorded 12 takes of the song, which were edited and pieces taken out and compiled to the final cut, she believed she did a bad job. This song was not all one straight recording.
and it's reflected in your character, if you're afraid of dying.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/5/10
i'm afraid of dying; i won't lie to myself (how can i?) but i listened to this in a time of great internal struggles and (even though i do not share in the nostalgia that is pink floyd for i've never heard of the band before) i believe this song really hit the "dark side of the moon" with pure raw emotional power. thank you pink floyd for this song.
The Great Gig In The Sky | Reviewer: Mike H | 1/16/09
This is by far one of the most intense songs i have ever listened to, Amazing vocals, great instrumental. I cant believe that the woman who sung this apologized after singing it. absolutely incredible.
it's like being in the dark side of the moon.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/2/08
in my opinion the whole story of pink floyd can be reducted to this song. is a kind of glorius, epic,a has a litle of this pain that we feel when we remember syd, the fights between the musicians and now the left of the great richard wright, i really hope him to reast in peace, nothing's gonna be the same..we'll se him there...in the dark side of the moon..
THE great gig in the sky | Reviewer: NEIL LENET | 6/29/07
In reading some old articles about pink floyd after waters left, one of the things that keeps popping up is waters astronomical ego, and his inhumanity to richard wright. In my opinion, all one needs to do is listen to great gig and ALL the keyboards in floyds music to recognize the gem that is richard. For me, he was the pink floyd sound, period.Daves guitar is awesome obviously, and Nick mason is a good drummer, but richard's sound is the heart of pink floyd. It seems to me that the more control waters took, the albums became a little less spiritual and heartfelt. Just my humble opinion. Neil.
one of the greatest songs ever.... | Reviewer: yaniv | 2/5/07
a touch of heaven...the woman who sang this solo is extremely talented(my friend tried and almost passed out due to lack of air!)
one of the greatest songs in the album....and in the entire history of the band...
along with echoes the album animals wish you were here and many more...
