The child is grown the dream is gone I have comfortably numb. Tonight I went to a concert by a Pink Floyd Cover band with Robin. Among the songs they sang was Shine On You Crazy Diamond”, which was about Pink Floyd cofounder Syd Barrett. The child is grown the dream is gone I have comfortably numb Pink Floyd. This was appropriate because today is World Mental Health Day. Syd had to leave the band because he was crippled by schizophrenia. Sadly, he missed out on the wild success enjoyed by the rest of the band, but at least they did ensure he received his cut of the profits.
Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb
There are many songs about mental illness, not just Pink Floyd songs. Way more than there are songs about chicken pox or broken legs. I wonder why? Maybe musicians aren’t fearful of the stigma of mental illness. Why should they be? It can happen to anybody, it’s not a failure and it’s not the person’s own fault. Maybe it is time to take mental illness out from behind the dark side of the moon. Let us all shine on like Syd, no matter what mental illness we might have had yesterday or today or tomorrow. I hope music keeps shining its light on mental illness and continues to bring joy to us all.
