Michael Jackson was Comfortably Numb

There are some songs that stand the test of time. Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd combines great lyrics with great music. The analogy with Michael Jackson and the trial of his doctor is striking and the lyrics contain references to giving a stressed out performer drugs to keep him relaxed and functioning to perform:

” I hear you’re feeling down, I can ease your pain”…

“Just a little pin prick, they’l be no more aaaaah, but you will feel a little sick” …

“That’ll keep you going through the show”…

“There is no pain you are receding” …

“I have become comfortably numb” …

Money, an anxious pop star, a doctor ready to supply the drugs for money. The easing of the pain.

– Pink Floyd’s art, or real life??

One thought on “Michael Jackson was Comfortably Numb

  1. I thought the same exact thing. I had an image in my mind of Dr. Murray shooting up Jackson like it was that scene from the Wall where there singer’s face melts off.
