The Wall is the eleventh album by the English progressive rock group
Pink Floyd.
Released on 30 November 1979, it was performed live with elaborate
theatrical effects, and adapted into a film, Pink Floyd-The Wall.
The Wall is a concept album and deals largely with themes of abandonment
and personal isolation.
The genre of the album is rock opera that centres on Pink, (Alter ego of
Waters) (bassist, vocalist, lyricist and leader of the group)
Pink´s life experiences begin with the loss of his father during the
Second World War, and continue with abuse from his school teachers,
an overprotective mother, the breakdown of his marriage and finally his
controversial use of drugs.
All contribute to his eventual self-imposed isolation from society,
represented by a metaphorical wall.
“Another Brick in the Wall" is the title of three songs set to
variations of the same basic theme. Part 1 “Reminiscing”, Part 2
“Education” and Part 3 “Drugs”.
All parts were written by Roger Waters.
We´ve listened to Part 2 which was the most famous.
It is a protest song against rigid schooling in general and boarding
schools in the UK in particular. It deals with the rigid rules that
used to be in the 50´s schools.
It was released as a single and provided the band a number-one
hit in the UK, West Germany and many other countries. The group
received a Grammy
The single sold over 4 million copies worldwide
The song also features a group of school children for lead vocals in the second verse:
as the song ends, the sounds of a school yard are heard, along with the teacher
(portrayed as a Scotsman) who tries to prevail and dominate the children's lives by
shouting such things as "Wrong! Do it again!", and "If you don't eat yer meat, you
can't have any pudding! How can you have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?!",
and "You! Yes! You behind the bikesheds! Stand still, laddie!", all of it dissolving into
the dull drone of a phone ringing and ending with a deep sigh.
PLOT: After being insulted by the teacher, Pink dreams that the kids in his
school begin to protest against their abusive teachers. The song talks
about how he had a personal wall around him from the rest of the world,
the teachers were just another brick in the wall.
