learned who made a song

Stumbled across a YouTube video on the early Pink Floyd days. In the 70s, I jumped on the bandwagon with the Dark Side of the Moon, after Syd Barrett had left.

While watching fascinating early performances and promotional pieces, I perked up for one particular song, Astronomy Domine. Wait. What?

I thought Voivod did that song! Many moons ago I bought the Canada metal band's 1989 Nothingface album primarily for this song. I just assumed they wrote it...


This was an eye-opener. Pink Floyd made this peculiar song.

Listen to the isolated song by Barrett et all.

Floating down, the sound resounds
Around the icy waters underground
Jupiter and Saturn, Oberon, Miranda and Titania
Neptune, Titan, Stars can frighten

It is widely regarded as their first astronomy-themed psychedelic masterpiece.
