Pink Floyd makes "Epic Rock Tracks" list
"Shine on You Crazy Diamond" No. 4 on Mojo list

Mojo magazine has named Pink Floyd's "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" No. 4 on its "100 Epic Rock Tracks" list. The list appears in the magazine's April issue.

"Floyd's nine-part epic drifts, like bong smoke, over two sides of the original vinyl LP," the article states, "driven by a four-note guitar figure as exciting as it is simple."

"Shine on You Crazy Diamond," a tribute to departed band member Syd Barrett, appeared on the band's 1975 album "Wish You Were Here."

The magazine's top five epic rock tracks are:

  1. Bohemian Rhapsody/Queen
  2. Stairway to Heaven/Led Zeppelin
  3. Sympathy for the Devil/Rolling Stones
  4. Shine on You Crazy Diamond/Pink Floyd
  5. The End/The Doors
