The10 Best Rick Wright Pink Floyd Songs

6. Summer ’68
The pastoral song, away from 1970’s Atom Heart Mother, was written and sung by Wright and features increasing, unique vocal harmonies in the vein in the Beach Boys. The song also features beautiful passages by Wright on both keyboard and Hammond organ.

5. The Great Gig in the Sky
The track, off of 1973’s The Dark Side of the Moon, started as a chord collection by Wright and was at first played on the organ live, but eventually changed to piano for the album recording. The song contains spoken phrase samples about death as well as wordless vocals by the British vocalist Clare Torry, who successfully sued for co-authorship of the song in 2004/2005.
