As we are getting closer the the end of our WMMCM Halloween Marathon, it’s time for one of the most truly disturbing songs we could come up with.
“Goodbye Blue Sky” is from Pink Floyd’s amazing album The Wall.
The song is creepy in its own right, but with the addition of the video (from the movie version) by Gerald Scarfe, it makes the skin crawl.
The tortured impressions of England during the Blitz in the early days of the Second World War are almost too difficult to watch…
“Did you see the frightened ones? Did you hear the falling bombs?
Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter when the
promise of a brave new world unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?”
But you can’t look away…
“The flames are all gone, but the pain lingers on.
Goodbye, blue sky…”
They’re too powerful.
