Bike was the closing track for Pink Floyd’s debut album The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn released on the 5th of August, 1967. originally titled The Bike Song, Bike is more of a love song than a song about his bike. the song was specifically written for Jenny Spires who was at the time Syd Barrett’s girlfriend. Syd shows her his bike, in which he borrowed. also a red and black cloak, his mouse named Gerald, his clan of gingerbread men, and at the very end Syd brings her to his music room.
An acetate of a early recording of Bike including verses not used in the released version and a different approach to the instrumentation is said to exist, though never included on any released bootleg.
who else puts on a really exaggerated Syd Barrett voice when singing along with his songs?
