Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "We don't need no education We don't need no thought control No dark sarcasm in the classroom Teacher leave them kids alone Hey! Teacher! Leave them kids alone!" What hit are these lyrics from?

Answer: Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2

"Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2" is one of Pink Floyd's most famous songs, as well as their only number one hit, and my personal favorite. The song, about children revolting against the oppression of their teachers, was banned in South American countries due to its theme of protesting the educational system.

The song was inspired by experiences at the Cambridge School For Boys. It appears on the double-album "The Wall". Roger Waters penned most of the album himself.
2. "A certain look in the eye, and an easy smile You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to So that when they turn their backs on you You get the chance to put the knife in" These lyrics belong to which song?

Answer: Dogs

"Dogs" appears as the second track on the album "Animals". Roger Waters stated that the concept of "Animals" was to describe the different levels of society. Roger Waters wrote the entire album himself, with help from Gilmour on this song.
3. "There is no pain you are receding A distant ship smoke on the horizon You are only coming through in waves Your lips move, but I can't hear what you say" These lyrics are from what song?

Answer: Comfortably Numb

"Comfortably Numb" appears on the double-album "The Wall". Waters has stated that it was partly inspired by an experience he had, where he had severe stomach pains before a concert and was given a shot. This resulted in him hardly being able to lift his left arm, yet he played anyway.

The song is about what drugs do to the human body. Roger Waters and David Gilmour had a long argument over this song as to how it should have been written. Gilmour wanted to sing it with more of a grunge sound, but Waters ultimately won.
4. "So So you think you can tell Heaven from Hell Blue skies form, pain Can you tell a green field From a cold steel rail" What hit do these lyrics belong to?

Answer: Wish You Were Here

"Wish You Were Here" is one of the last tracks on the album of the same name. It is mainly about Syd Barrett, the original lead singer and guitarist who was kicked out of the band after years of drug abuse deteriorated his mental state. The songs is about Pink Floyd wishing Barrett could still be with them.

The line "from a cold steel rail" is a reference to one of the songs on Barrett's solo album, one of the tracks mentioning a cold steel rail.
5. "There's a silence surrounding I can't seem to think straight I sit in the corner Where no one can bother me" To which song do these lines belong?

Answer: Keep Talking

"Keep Talking" appears on the album "The Division Bell", the last album they would release until twenty years later, in late 2014. It is the second album without Roger Waters, who left Pink Floyd after disputes within the band.
6. "And if the dam breaks open many years too soon And if there is no room upon the hill And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too I'll see you on the dark side of the moon" These lyrics are from what song on "The Dark Side of the Moon"?

Answer: Brain Damage

"Brain Damage" is often mistitled "I'll See You on the Dark Side of the Moon" by radio stations when it is played. It is the second-to-last track on the album, followed by "Eclipse". The songs on the album have no breaks in between, so the latter and the former are often believed to be one song.
7. "Well, I've always had a deep respect, and I mean that most sincerely. The band is just fantastic, that is really what I think. Oh by the way, which one's Pink?" This verse is from what classic?

Answer: Have A Cigar

"Have a Cigar" appears on the album "Wish You Were Here". The line "Oh by the way, which one's Pink?" is a reference to the character Pink, created by Roger Waters, whose life is told through the music of the double-album "The Wall".
8. "All you create All you destroy All that you do All that you say All that you eat everyone you meet All that you slight everyone you fight" These lyrics are from what closing song on their best-selling album?

Answer: Eclipse

"Eclipse" is the closing track on "The Dark Side of the Moon". After the lyrics, if you listen carefully, you can hear the spoken line "There is no dark side of the moon, really. As a matter of fact it's all dark." At the very end of the song, if you listen carefully again, you can faintly make out "Ticket To Ride" by The Beatles, which was playing in one of the rooms nearby at Abbey Road Studios.
9. "There is no other day Let's try it another way You'll lose your mind and play Free games for may" These lines are from what hit?

Answer: See Emily Play

"See Emily Play" was the only single to feature original lead singer Syd Barrett. Barrett was later booted out of the band after years of psychedelic drug abuse deteriorated his mental state. He was later replaced with David Gilmour.
10. "It's awfully considerate of you to think of me here And I'm much obliged to you for making it clear That I'm not here." To what song on "A Saucerful of Secrets" do these lyrics belong?

Answer: Jugband Blues

"Jugband Blues" is the closing track on the album "A Saucerful of Secrets". Due to Syd Barrett's mental deterioration after drug abuse, this was his last composition for Pink Floyd before being kicked out of the band. After his departure, Roger Waters was the driving force behind Pink Floyd.
