Did you know that the name of the Pink Floyd Division Bell album was suggested by Douglas Adams, the author of the cult classic Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? Did you know that the song Coming Back To Life was used to wake up the astronauts of the Columbia space shuttle? There is a footage of the crew talking to the control center on the NASA website. Did you know that the What Do You Want From Me guitar theme had already been used 16 years earlier on David Gilmoure’s first solo album?

note:

The album was very successful, although it is quite extravagant because of two very long experimental tracks it features. The first one takes the entire A side and Pink Floyd wanted it to be “something big.”
The song Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast was inspired by the morning rituals of a faithful Pink Floyd roadie called Alan Stiles, whose voice can be heard on the album. The song was performed live only once.
The album's name is a reference to a newspaper article about the theoretical possibility of human pacemakers running on nuclear energy.
