Thx, fixed :)

Awesome song - thanks!

Killer guitar solo, too.

Awesome quiz! I have become comfortably numb. Thank you :)

For those not around when this album came out, it's worth listening to the whole album and/or watching the film. There's a lot more to it than a couple of popular songs and some wailing guitar solos. It's a very well told story of the descent of a rock star into depression and madness.

Best. Floyd. Song. Ever.

"Ah!"? More like "Aaaaaaaaaaah!!!!"
Oct 13th, 2012 at 17:58 GMT
I totally typed aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh before I tried Ah.

Cool a quiz for us Scissor Sisters fans!
Oct 13th, 2012 at 18:40 GMT
Fortunately, I spell it ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, so the first two letters did it for me.
Oct 13th, 2012 at 19:29 GMT
@Tommy_C: Yup, as with all Floyd albums, you've got to listen to the whole work. The first side thru ABITW part II is some of the best rock music ever written.
Oct 13th, 2012 at 19:34 GMT
I actually hadn't realised I knew all the words to this. I must have listened to it more times than I thought...
Oct 13th, 2012 at 20:45 GMT
Now they need to figure out a way to get the guitar solos into Sporcle - how many of you guys played them in your head when you got to those parts of the quiz?
Oct 13th, 2012 at 20:50 GMT
I typed "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa", never thinking to put an "h" at the end anywhere. Good to see one of these for a song I actually know from beginning to end.
Oct 13th, 2012 at 21:07 GMT
*cue epic guitar solo*
Oct 13th, 2012 at 21:31 GMT
So much win and even more feels!
Oct 13th, 2012 at 21:42 GMT
For added challenge, I finished this quiz while listening to another Pink Floyd song (Sheep, if you were curious). Perfect score, of course.
Oct 13th, 2012 at 22:01 GMT
@ajaxfam: Maybe someday we can get to choose our preferred background music (tho ultimately wd. be a distraction) but we'll just have to visualise the huge mirrored ball and that glorious laser-eyed flying pig. Roger is great solo, but if I cd. have one band re-form there's no doubt which band it wd.be.

It's not cheating to listen to quality rock while playing sporcle, is it?
Oct 14th, 2012 at 03:13 GMT
I always thought it was, "there is no pain you are receiving..." Sporcle teaches me another valuable lesson.
Oct 14th, 2012 at 05:15 GMT
I don't believe the word "at" should be in this quiz. Roger Waters clearly sings, "Is there anyone home?" Not, "Is there anyone 'at' home?"
Oct 14th, 2012 at 05:31 GMT
@sydrogerdavid2: I think the "at" is pretty clear.
Oct 14th, 2012 at 05:57 GMT
Cool Pink Floyd trivia: The first track can be seen as a continuation of the last track. Outside the Wall ends with "Isn't this where. . ." And In the Flesh starts with the same sustained note and ". . .we came in?"
Oct 14th, 2012 at 06:02 GMT
@smcguigan I see where you hear your "at." You are listening to the live version of the song on the "Is There Anybody Out There?" album. Take a listen to the original album, Roger doesn't sing "at" at all.
Oct 14th, 2012 at 06:05 GMT
Still one of the best songs ever... amazing. One of the first I learned on guitar!
Oct 14th, 2012 at 06:37 GMT
@laura_bell: sounds ambitious for a first song.
Oct 14th, 2012 at 12:51 GMT
7% of the people missed "comfortably" and "numb"??
Oct 14th, 2012 at 14:55 GMT
If you look at the sleeves for The Wall LP's which have the lyrics, the "at" is definitely in them. Depending on your stereo equipment, you might not hear Roger say it, but you can at minimum hear a pause between "anyone" and "home."
Oct 14th, 2012 at 16:09 GMT
The sleeve also contains many lyrics that are not in the album itself. Most notably the entire song of "What Shall We Do Now." If I'm not mistaken, most of the lyrics for "Empty Spaces" are also different from what is written on the sleeve. This was due to limited space on vinyl. So is this quiz really about what was on the album, or what was on the sleeve?
Oct 14th, 2012 at 20:47 GMT
My favourite song of all time, from the greatest album ever written. Even listening to it in my head while typing out the lyrics makes me feel so much.
Oct 14th, 2012 at 21:00 GMT
I always thought it was "a distant ship's smoke on the horizon" ie from its smokestacks out at sea. I liked that mental image...
Oct 15th, 2012 at 10:31 GMT
Aargh? Aaargh? Aaaaaarrrrgggghhhh? I was screaming like a pirate in the end!!
Oct 15th, 2012 at 21:20 GMT
I never heard the "well" before "I can ease your pain". Had to go listen to the song repeatedly to verify...
Oct 17th, 2012 at 16:43 GMT
i'm a dork and started typing the wish you were here lyrics instead. duh.
Oct 19th, 2012 at 16:38 GMT
I've always thought it was cool the way Roger Waters pronounces words like "facts". He puts an "n" sound in there, like "fanx." (Which is why I love the line from The Gunner's Dream: "You can relanx, on both sides of the tranx, and manianx don't blow holes in madmen by remote control..."
Oct 26th, 2012 at 19:17 GMT
Ease your pain!!!!!!!!! ugh I knew that.
Feb 12th, 2013 at 16:40 GMT
Such a beautiful song. Easy 100%.
