Pink Tang

The Beatles borrowed from Carl Perkins and the Stones borrowed from Robert Johnson.
And Pink Floyd borrowed from the ancient Chinese poems of the Tang Dynasty almost 1200 years earlier.

"Little by little the night turns around.
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn"

"Over the mountain watching the watcher.
Breaking the darkness, waking the grapevine."

"Witness the man who raves at the wall
Making the shape of his questions to Heaven"

taken from Pink Floyd Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun
