(Songs about trials, part 2) If I told you the precise location within the third great arm of government of the individual who nominated Pink Floyd’s ‘The Trial’, a segment from the filmic rock opera The Wall, you wouldn’t believe me. More of his rich collection of songs about trials to come.
You wouldn’t know it from the comments but there is quite a flutter as various music buffs email me their lists, and then email me begging to know what others have enumerated. This is just the beginnings, peoples. All will be revealed in time.
An extract from the lyrics:
‘The evidence before the court is incontravertible.
There’s no need for the jury to retire.
In all my years of judging I have never heard before,
Of someone more deserving of the full penalty of the law.
The way you made them suffer,
Your exquisite wife and mother,
Fills me with the urge to defacate!
No, Judge, the jury!
Since, my friend, you have revealed your deepest fear,
I sentence you to be exposed before your peers.
Tear down the wall!’
