Zabriskie Point – Country Song (Pink Floyd)
This post brings the description of my current music collection to an end. I have not included any of my classical music, but I think I have included all others.
This final collection of music from various artists is in fact the soundtrack to a cult film from 1970, which describes the development of the youth-based movement of the late 60s in the USA. A total failure as a film, the beauty of Zabriskie Point is undoubtedly this music and especially the input from Pink Floyd.
This song starts off very much like some of the tracks from the film More, but after a while it turns to a more rock-based sound with a buzz effect on the lead guitar. This turns back to the initial theme and so the tune repeats. The lyrics are interesting and powerfully sung and there is clearly music development that makes the sound a little unusual for Pink Floyd. The rock influence gets stronger toward the end of the track until a faded ending. A very unusual piece of music from an unusual album.
