Music Video of the Day: Arnold Layne by Pink Floyd (1967, directed by Derek Nice)


Pink Floyd released their first single and their first video in 1967.  This video for Arnold Layne was filmed in February of 1967 on a beach in West Sussex.  I can only guess how cold it must have been while they were filming.

The video, which features the band and a bunch of mannequins, shows that Pink Floyd had a surreal spirit from the beginning.  This video is also unique because all of the members of the band seem to be happy to be with each other for once.  This was filmed before Syd Barrett’s breakdown and long before Roger Waters and David Gilmour started suing each other.

Enjoy!
