"We worked very hard to make the lyrics suit the music. I can't, like Elton John, for example, compose by lyrics. Elton has a great talent for that. Whatever you give him, including your questions, he composes in half an hour and makes a great song out of it"

- Rick Wright

About this Quote

This quote is spoken by Rick Wright, who was a member of the British rock band Pink Floyd. With this quote, Wright is describing how he as well as the band came close to creating verses for their songs. He acknowledges the ability of fellow artist Elton John to compose songs based solely on lyrics, which is not a skill possessed by the members of his very own band. Instead, Wright and also his bandmates worked hard to make certain that their lyrics complemented the songs they were composing. By doing this, the development of Pink Floyd's songs was a collective initiative in which each member contributed their own one-of-a-kind abilities as well as capacities.
