I could go on and on with Floyd songs... just a story about "shine on you crazy diamond":
As a child I was listening to it, while my father was asleep. It was noon time, and I got carried away by the music, pumping up the volume.

Ever since, this perfect threshold between dreams and reality, became one of his favourite songs...and I was asked to play it again and again, to the point that it was my father who started to annoy me.
