Pink Floyd - "The Scarecrow" (1967)

Might be the best of Barrett's early lyrics with its coherence, the cadence of the wordplay in the verses, and the sheer poetry of the single line (non-rhyming) chorus. Arrangement is very pleasant: sparse, but also very rich when the two acoustic guitars enter at the end.

"The Scarecrow" on Lala.
