Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Learning to Fly

Answer: A Momentary Lapse of Reason

This song was released as a single, and alludes to this being the first album by the band without Roger Waters on board. "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" was released in 1987 and reached number three in both the UK and USA.
2. Echoes

Answer: Meddle

This track, at 23 minutes and 32 seconds, takes up the whole of the second side of the original vinyl LP. It was a live favourite of the band for many years, and guitarist David Gilmour included it in his live sets well into the 21st century. "Meddle" was released in 1971, and made it to number three in the UK.
3. Keep Talking

Answer: The Division Bell

"Keep Talking" features the electronic voice of scientist Stephen Hawking. It was released as a single and reached number 26 on the UK chart. Released in 1994, "The Division Bell" was the last Pink Floyd studio album of the 20th century, topping the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.
4. Vera

Answer: The Wall

The song takes its title from British singer Vera Lynn, famous during World War 2. Sound effects from the movie "The Battle of Britain" are included at the beginning of the track. "The Wall" was an American number one, although it stalled at number three in the UK. A movie version of the album, starring Bob Geldof, was released in 1982.
5. Summer '68

Answer: Atom Heart Mother

This song was written by keyboardist Richard Wright, who also provided the lead vocals. It is about a one-night stand with a groupie. "Atom Heart Mother" was released in 1970 and gave the band their first UK number one. The iconic sleeve of the album features a brown and white dairy cow.
6. Brain Damage

Answer: The Dark Side of the Moon

This song had the working title of "Lunatic", and was influenced by the deteriorating mental state of former band member Syd Barret. The lyrics include the line "I'll see you on the dark side of the moon". The album is one of the biggest selling rock albums of all time, although, strangely, it only reached number two in Britain.
7. Bike

Answer: The Piper at the Gates of Dawn

This track, written by Syd Barrett, features a bike and a mouse called Gerald, and concludes with the band members laughing. "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn". released in 1967, was the band's first studio release, and reached number 22 in the UK.
8. Shine On You Crazy Diamond

Answer: Wish You Were Here

There were nine parts to this song spread over both halves of the original vinyl LP. The song was a tribute to former band member Syd Barrett. "Wish You Were Here" was released in 1975 and made it to number one in both the UK and USA.
9. The Fletcher Memorial Home

Answer: The Final Cut

This song references a number of late 20th century political figures, such as Margaret Thatcher, Leonid Brezhnev and Ronald Reagan. "The Final Cut" was entirely written by Roger Waters, and was the last Pink Floyd album he featured on before he left the band. Released in 1983, it topped the UK albums chart.
10. Dogs

Answer: Animals

Had to include this one, as it is my favourite Floyd track (and album)! The original working title was "You've Got to be Crazy", which are the opening lyrics to the song. The song references the dog-eat-dog world of big business. "Animals" was released in 1977, and reached number two in Britain and number three in the US.

It has one of the most iconic sleeves of 20th century rock music, with an inflatable pig seen flying over Battersea power station.
