Going back to Pink Floyd

The fact that they sing, 'We don't need no education,' suggests to me that they do. Or are they being ironic?

Am I thinking too much?

...We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom...

Anti-authoritarian, I would say :-)

Best not to over think most lyrics Liz!

Lyrics often misconstrued... but in this case it was massive irony, it was about the appalling treatment Roger Waters suffered when at school - however many would say it was never a problem for them etc. and he did end up a multimillionaire so...

Personally - apart from Comfortably Numb (a song any addict will relate to) I never rated the Wall - Animals was their best I always thought

Lyrics now changed to 'We don't need no beach bike hut' ;-)

I agree with jams.

Perhaps a little ironic, Liz. Well done Wales, yes?
