"Ibiza Bar" is a song by English rock band Pink Floyd, featured on their third album, Soundtrack from the Film More . [1] [2]

Music

The song opens with a rhythm guitar riff notably similar to that of "The Nile Song". However, unlike that track, "Ibiza Bar" does not change keys, staying with a verse of E and D major chords, and a chorus resolving to A major. The chorus could be said to modulate, via a series of chords based on accidentals, all major: A to C, G to B-flat, and F back to A. David Gilmour's lead guitar parts use a good deal of echo. This and "The Nile Song" are among the few flirtations the band made with a heavier sound, along with Part 2 of "The Narrow Way" from Ummagumma , "The Gold It's in the..." from Obscured by Clouds and "Young Lust" from The Wall .
