I was in the kitchen,
Seamus, that's the dog, was outside
Well, I was in the kitchen,
Seamus, my old hound, was outside
Well, the sun sinks slowly
But my old hound just sat right down and cried

    General CommentAww! Well, everyone has one of those days every once in a while! Ofcource it's a joke, more or less, but I love it, so simple and nice.

    I've never actually heard Meddle straight (always stoned or something, out of principle, because I dont want it to be getting old, hearing it again and again. It's just too good) so I hardly remember anything other then what I wrote in my diary at the time.

    General CommentI have read that it is a sexual entendre. (I don't know how explicit I can be here but) Seamus is the male part, the kitchen is the female, and he is being oral. Then he lost his ability to perform. I actually read an entire paper on this. I just think it was the boys having some fun.

    General CommentThis song is my honorary favorite song, Echoes being my true favorite song. This song captures the entire essence of it's genre (British Blues), and it's not even PF's genre.

    Kind of like how The Nile Song captures the essence of heavy metal (I think). It's the only song in that vein that I enjoy. Also the only song off the entire More album that I enjoy.

    General CommentWhy does everyone hate Seamus? It makes my Floyd top 25, no question.

    General CommentWell I do agree with the folks who put Seamus as the bottem 10. It was almost disruptive to the amazing album it's on.
