We're at #6 in my Favorite "Guy's Names" Songs series, and it's a good one: Pink Floyd's "Careful with that Axe, Eugene." Members of both the UK Music Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Pink Floyd formed in London in 1965. They have, according to Wikipedia, sold more than 250 million records worldwide. The extremely trippy "Careful with that Axe, Eugene" was originally released as the B-Side to the 1968 single "Point Me at the Sky." It was "Eugene," however, that became a live staple for the band in the late 60's/early 70's.
Pink Floyd: "Oakland 1977" (Special: Rhinotrocity #13 - MOTB Release: 0053 24 bits 96 khz - 2009-01-29) EX+... Live At Alameda Coliseum, Oakland, California,...

one of their great early classics and such a terrific title - remember seeing it performed in the film of their live at Pompeii concert

@teamfreak16 you have to watch it. It's one of my fave music DVDS. I love the performance of set the controls for the heart of the sun on it.

I love this song... thing is I like to put pink floyd at Pompeii on and have a few drinks, relax.. I forget Rodger is about to scream... that ruins the atmosphere and as for that dog 'singing'... no thank you. That gets forwarded.
