An evening pause: The link calls this the official video, remastered in 2011. The style and look of the filming however fits the 1960s to a T.

    Whoops!
    BBC must have pulled down this version in just the past few weeks, cuz I downloaded the file in April.
    Nifty little Floyd tune, harkens back to a simpler time in some respects, excepting the whole “lose your mind today..” motif, har.
    (There were some other lower-quality & edited versions at youtube, no clue how vigilant the copyright-police have been.)

  • Unfortunately, I am on the road, so fixing this is difficult if not impossible. Oh well. If you can find this video on youtube and post the link as a comment, I might be able to fix the post. At a minimum this will provide people access to it.

    I think this is an alternate link to Pink Floyd – See Emily Play.

  • That’s the song, but it isn’t the video that Wayne suggested. The video was a very 1960s avant-garde type surreal film, far better than this production which just shows the band hamming it up on a grassy field.

    Have to try it on a VPN.
    Don’t have one set up here but maybe I’ll have a chance in a few days.

    Looks like the BBC has scrubbed them all —the particular version in question— off of youtube.

    mpthompson:
    Thanks for your effort!
    If you notice, for the version you found, is the exact same background location for a number of short WHO videos, from that same time period.

    >Go for it!
    Not sure if it’s just blocked in the USA, or “everywhere.”

    Pink Floyd probably the best non-metal band ever, ‘See Emily Play’ http://lyricsmusic.name/pink-floyd-lyrics/relics/see-emily-play.html fantastic song from a classic album.
